The pandemic has fundamentally transformed the way we conduct business, compelling organizations across the globe to explore the changing realities of remote work.
As office meetings become video calls, UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) platforms are seeing a rise in demand because they empower teams across industries to collaborate at home and ensure business continuity.
“Business as usual” has a new meaning as organizations find the tools they need with Microsoft Teams, which can enable businesses to get back on track and facilitate a new flexible, hybrid work reality.
Why is Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) trending?
While remote work trends only recently began to surge after COVID-19 brought economies to a standstill, it’s not a new concept. Companies like Verizon Data Center and HP already had remote work solutions in place years earlier.
But now that work-from-home solutions have caught on like wildfire, Buffer’s State of Remote Work Report 2020 states that at least 57% of respondents spend 100% of their time working remotely. Work from home has become an integral aspect of business in today’s world.
That said, the move to remote work hasn’t been easy or smooth, forcing companies to reconsider their stance on these solutions.
With no board meetings or water-cooler conversations to fuel impromptu brainstorming sessions – transitioning from the traditional office to remote working has been challenging.
And yet, it is the only lifeline for organizations that want to survive the current economic troubles. That’s why many businesses are in search of ways to make the transition easy – and that’s where UCaaS platforms help by streamlining all their communication and collaboration needs.
