How To Get Your End-Users To Hop Aboard The UC Bandwagon

Planning to sell Unified Communications (UC) to your end users? Don’t expect them to get too excited right away.

Also on the list of common pastime activities was “miscellaneous interruptions.”

It starts with an innocent tap on the shoulder — a colleague asks a brief question about an upcoming deadline. No big deal, right? Two conversations and four emails later, you’ve officially wasted almost an hour.

I’m not here to tell you the story of how companies big and small fail to acknowledge the importance of using proper collaboration tools. The cat is out of the bag and has been for years. The market simply isn’t mature enough to take the plunge. What I want to share with you today is the typical scenario where office hours become pure chaos due to simple distractions like the one mentioned above.
