Sponsored by XO Communications, hosted by Enterprise Connect and NoJitter
Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) is becoming so widely accepted by businesses that the question is no longer if it’s the right choice, but when you and your enterprise will be ready to make the move.
When making the move to hosted, your business needs to be prepared for the fundamental changes it means for your IT staff, or you could fail to deliver the value your business is expecting from UCaaS. In this webinar we will discuss how you can prepare your IT department for the changing responsibilities and skillsets required by hosted services. Key takeaways will include:
