What are unified communications?

If you want a simple definition, unified comms is a collection of equipment, software and services that bring together multiple business communications channels.

This means that unified communications is a workplace solution that aims to stop siloed and separate conversations, and make workforces more productive and people more fulfilled.

Remote working was a growing trend only expedited. The office wasn't working way before Covid locked it down.

If we're talking specifics, unified comms includes:

  • Video conferencing

  • Voice and video calling

  • Voicemails

  • Messaging

  • Team collaboration and planning

  • File sharing

  • Cloud storage

  • Virtual white boarding

  • Employee status and
    attendance monitoring

If you've not got a unified comms solution, you'll probably already know for yourself how many different tools, invoices, login credentials and error messages there is – and it's all an unnecessary drain on human and business resources.

So what's a UCAAS?

It's what happens when you take a unified comms platform and put it in the cloud: unified communications as a service. A service that's easy and inexpensive to start reaping the benefits from.

Benefits of unified communications

There are lots. And we'll outline them in further detail, but here are the main ones:

  • Increased productivity

  • Better employee wellbeing

  • Reduced costs

  • Increased security

Increased productivity

You don't need to know too much about cognitive load to understand that switching from your inbox to your instant messenger to your video conferencing app breaks your train of thought pretty quickly. That's before you factor in the issues of trying to navigate a working day around them all. What's your password for this one? What computer can I use that on? Where did she send me that file? Having everything in one place not only makes it easier but it also means those important communications are less likely to be missed.

Reduced costs

Would you rather pay for 6 pieces of software or 1?

It's not just a question of volume either.

Because UCAAS is the prominent way of delivering unified comms, you'll be switching from a capital expense model, to an Operational expense model – that's a lot of upfront cost savings.

Better employee wellbeing

Think for a second. You can communicate with almost anyone else in the world by call, e-mail, text, and video. Remote working has meant we can serve our customers far from where we work, work far from where we live, and live far from our friends and families. Yet humans are social creatures. And 'far' is making businesses fall short with their employee wellbeing responsibilities. Remote working is great for many reasons, but without the correct support, remote working technology pushes people further and further away, cracks appear. Simple decisions become huge problems. Employee engagement wanes.

Tech shouldn't push people away, it should maximise human contact.

Security

Highest security standards - we use AWS infrastructure. We don’t store any data outside of the UK and EU

Are unified communications expensive?

There's a tendency to think that because immersive and unified comms are so powerful, they have a price to match. They don't. They are much more bespoke and you literally only pay for what you need to use.

Why do we need unified communications?

You don't need them. Your business and your employees will benefit from them if you run any kind of remote or hybrid working operation, but you don't need them.

That said, although there are currently no regulations tied to employee wellbeing and remote working yet, there's a good chance there will be in the future.

Furthermore, as the workforce becomes increasingly more fluid, it'll become a distinct hiring advantage to have unified comms in place – you'll not only open up your talent pool, but you appeal directly to the talent who'll soon be asking questions about your remote working provisions.

Are unified & immersive comms the same?

They can be! All this terminology and technology is relatively new – certainly new enough to have not been defined in the public consciousness yet.

PixelMax's unified comms solution can incorporate many virtual elements making it feel much more immersive (and therefore powerful) than most other offerings. As technology progresses and hybrid working becomes even more widespread, immersive platforms will be far more valued by employers and employees alike.

Is PixelMax the best unified comms platform?

We'd like to think so!

PixelMax is different. It harnesses close-knit human connection with the endless possibilities of cutting-edge tech to maximise wellbeing, productivity and spontaneous ingenuity by bringing your people together.

Unified comms is central to it all, but it's so bespoke, anything is possible. Work with us to provide the ideal solution to any comms or collaborative issue you may have.
