The real gold standard in Unified Communications
By Karl Reed, Chief Marketing & Solutions Officer at Elingo
Beyond bells and whistles, low cost or ease of use, the gold standard for Unified Communications is to deliver performance that makes other solutions look like also-rans.
Interactive Intelligence’s solutions suite, delivered in SA by Elingo – the most experienced Interactive Intelligence partner in Africa – delivers Unified Communications that go far beyond ‘new generation’. It’s future-proof.
When your enterprise success depends heavily on your communications, you can’t afford to invest in hype. Your solution needs to be globally recognised, award-winning and designed for business.
You need solutions that can take you seamlessly into the cloud, allow you to maximise mobility, and deliver flawless integration with your existing systems. It needs to have a track record of excellence, based on the most intelligent architectures, yet be intuitive enough for non-IT users to master.
Interactive Intelligence has invested massively in perfecting solutions that deliver all of the above. In fact, its Unified Communications solutions will deliver unprecedented excellence in communications.
On top of the best solutions available today, enterprises need to partner with solution providers who can guide them in leveraging their communications for maximum benefit. Elingo’s team, with a combined total of over 180 years in the business, know what your enterprise communications needs are before you do.
In a market cluttered with solutions providers, enterprises need to select their partners carefully.
