Today’s business conditions are forcing organizations to find dynamic and flexible communications solutions that can unify co-workers and deliver actionable metrics to solve the issues that matter most. As the way we communicate continues to evolve from voice to video and chat, we must consider the long-term benefits of unified communications.
But what happens if no one uses the UC tools you invest in? You can’t measure what you can’t see. User adoption is the Achilles heel of the IT department.
So how can you ensure user adoption? What are the benefits to you? To your co-workers? To your company?
Join experts Robin Gareiss, President and Founder of Nemertes Research, and Eric Hanson, VP & evangelist for conferencing and collaboration with Fuze, for this hour-long webinar to learn how to make this necessary leap of faith. You'll identify the applications that encourage -- and necessitate -- user adoption, mending your communications Achilles heel.
Attendees will learn how to:
• Build alignment between lines of business owners and business objectives
• Prioritize simplicity and flexibility in a solution
• Understand how to measure success
