Unified Communication & Collaboration (Consultancy, Assessment & Strategy)

Voice Services, VoIP and Telepresence Video Conferencing communication tools integrate with numerous other systems and technology, connecting smartphones, softphones, desktop handsets, videophones, speakerphones, laptops, and computers. Whether done through physical equipment installation or a cloud based platform, these services and technologies can pose challenges due to the complexity of the conversion process and detailed steps required to be successful. The deployments of these tools demand an organized, committed plan to create a bridge between cutting edge technology and the client’s existing business infrastructure. ECC understands the sophistication of these technologies, the variety of enterprise and group level business practices, and the unique needs of individual users.

The goal is to help ensure the well-being of the underlying network infrastructure to support Unified Communications solutions, and to support expansion and increased traffic demands. During the build phase of a project, our SME’s will validate the implementation of the UC solution and create as-built documentation for your technical services or managed services practice.
