COVID-19 has had a dramatic impact on organizations. Companies that operated with the majority of employees working in the office suddenly find themselves having to support 100% of their workers now at home. During this time, CIOs are laser focused on minimizing business disruption and maintaining the highest levels of customer service. But how do businesses leaders leverage cloud unified communications to create sustainable work-from-home strategies? Get the answers in this on-demand webinar presented by Zeus Kerravala.
Using virtual private networks (VPNs) to extend connectivity of legacy solutions to employee’s homes can be costly and complicated–ultimately nothing more than a band-aid that is not scalable long term. A better approach is to shift critical applications to the cloud enabling workers to use them anywhere. Cloud unified communications enable workers to collaborate and communicate as effectively as if they were in the same room.
Likewise, cloud contact center applications can turn standard customer service operations into work-from-home agents, ensuring customer needs are being met. Setting up virtual agents can be intimidating, but cloud contact center applications make it simple. At-home agents just need endpoints with a softphone and headset, as well as an internet connection. Unlike VPN-based solutions, these cloud-based systems are cost effective and can be kept in place long after the current crisis.
