UCaaSUnified Communications as a Service (UCaaS)
Unified communications as a service (UCaaS) is a cloud or, as-a-service consumption model for your Unified Communications (UC) technologies. Every vendor has a unique way of packaging or bundling their individual solutions (including some amazing productivity Apps), but the most common feature included in a UCaaS product offering are: Voice, Messaging and Video Conferencing. Because this is a cloud-based approach, storage and security are built in.
Move your UC from CapEx to OpEx
UCaaS takes the model of Unified Communications and modernizes it. Instead of paying for your UC system as a capital expense (CapEx), it now becomes an operating expense (OpEx) that can flex to meet your business’s needs both today and tomorrow.
