Moving e-mail, Instant Messaging, voice, collaboration and presence awareness to the cloud and ultimately into a single "package" not only eases cost burdens, but enables UC to live up to its promise -- a simple, streamlined solution for employees to effectively communicate with one another across multiple channels and devices.
Hosted UC ensures the necessary messaging components are in place and integrated properly, not collecting dust in a server room waiting for another costly upgrade or troubleshooting session.
Additionally, taking UC to the cloud allows all businesses, regardless of size, to enjoy the flexibility and production improvement of unified communications, benefits previously only available to enterprises that could afford integrated in-house systems and upkeep.
Apptix is a provider of hosted unified communication services including business-class e-mail, voice, and collaboration for 300,000 users worldwide. For more than a decade, the company has specialized in providing hosted communications and collaboration services such as Microsoft Exchange e-mail, Microsoft SharePoint document management, VoIP phone services, and Web conferencing to businesses of all sizes.
