Unified Communications

Are you looking to improve communications in your organisation? Then Unified communications, the convergence of business communications across the IP network, gives users control over how they communicate and collaborate with others. Whether you are a customer interacting with a contact centre or a remote worker logging on to a conference call, unified communications gives you the ability to communicate using the tools that you have at your disposal.

Using our experience and in-house skills, Equard designs and delivers a single platform that unifies existing communications systems with new applications and devices. Whether you are planning a full or phased migration to a unified communications environment, we can work with you to develop a tailored roadmap.
