Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) allows on-site and remote users to collaborate seamlessly between devices and platforms. UCaaS falls into the "as a Service" offerings which are hosted on the cloud. Similar to IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and Hardware as a Service (HaaS), various unified communications applications and services can be made available effortlessly from the cloud, to your staff members, when and where you prefer.

Mobile applications, VoIP, video-conferencing and tele-conferencing, company-wide instant messaging, and bring-your-own device (BYOD), collaboration, are all able to work together flawlessly in the cloud through our UCaaS offerings. Better yet, employees can easily access communication tools whether they are at your company location or working from home.
Below are key 3 benefits to implementing UCaaS:
1. Cost Savings
By eliminating some of the unnecessary applications and services your team is currently using, your company will begin to cut costs. Furthermore, implementing UCaaS allows a business to stop trying to design their own communication solutions and allow an experienced third-party team (such as Maine Technology Group) to handle their needs efficiently. Additionally, leasing the latest equipment and technologies from a service provider allows your team to quit worrying about investing in costly equipment only to have it become outdated after just a few months.
According to Huffington Post, with UCaaS, "companies can start small, deploy and move resources where they’re needed, pull back once a project wraps up or add features as needs change." As your team’s communication needs grow and change with your business, so should the applications and services they use to connect with one another. Scalability also plays an important role for companies with employees working remotely; we can address each of your specific needs. Maine Technology Group will work closely with your team to ensure your communication platforms are working for your business, at all times.

3. Eliminate Outdated Applications
"Communication needs will grow quickly as companies adopt voice controls, beacons and sensors in the Internet of Things. Converged networks will allow workers to cover more ground with fewer onsite visits. As the number of remote connected sites expands, the ability to collaborate will become a more pressing need for UCaaS.
… Knowledge workers who bring their own mobile devices to work can be more effective and save the company hardware expenses—but only if their office messages, files and contacts stay in sync, and their valuable data is safe within the network." (www.huffingtonpost.com)
