Mobility

Mobility is a very important aspect of today’s workplace, and key Unified Communication features can support this. Given the rapid adoption of flexible or remote work options and bring-your-own-device trends, this is an especially relevant feature. In an increasingly mobile workforce, employees need to access communication tools and resources while on the go, whether they’re working remotely, traveling, or simply away from their desks. Mobile UC tools empower users to engage in real-time communication through features like instant messaging, voice and video calls, and document sharing, fostering productivity and collaboration. By embracing mobility, organizations can enhance employee flexibility, responsiveness to customers, and overall competitiveness in today’s dynamic business landscape.

TechnologyWest - Products and Services Integration

Integrations

Integrations play a crucial role in a unified communications strategy for several reasons. Firstly, they enable seamless connectivity between various communication tools and platforms, ensuring that users can access all relevant information and resources from a single interface. This integration enhances productivity by reducing the need to switch between multiple applications or systems. Additionally, integrations facilitate interoperability between different technologies and devices, allowing for more efficient communication and collaboration across the organization. Moreover, integrations enable organizations to leverage existing investments in communication infrastructure and applications, maximizing ROI and streamlining IT management. Finally, integrations with other business applications, such as customer relationship management (CRM) systems or project management tools, enable contextual communication and collaboration, leading to better decision-making and improved business outcomes. Integrations that many of our unified communication vendors offer are:

  • Azure
  • Google Workspace
  • Salesforce
  • Hubspot
  • ServiceNow
  • ZenDesk
  • Zoho
  • Microsoft Office 365
  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Microsoft Teams
TechnologyWest Services - Call Center Solutions

Call Center Solutions

Providing great customer service is important for every business to survive and thrive in the competition. However, responding to every client’s query can be challenging. In the past, establishing a call center to handle inbound and outbound phone calls, emails, chat, social media, SMS, and faxes necessitated substantial resources, limiting access primarily to large enterprises with dedicated infrastructure. However, software-driven call center solutions empower smaller firms to oversee all communication streams from a singular interface, fostering a cohesive customer journey. Call center software that is typically incorporated in Unified Communications solutions integrates with existing VoIP phone systems.

Customer Success Stories

Town of Telluride

Town of Telluride is saving approximately $2,000 per month when we contracted GoTo Connect VoIP phone services through TechnologyWest. We love everything about our new phone system including the ability to administrate users, devices, lines, and dial plans through a web interface. TechnologyWest also assisted us through the entire onboarding process. Our staff actively use the mobile app, softphone, and GoTo Meeting capabilities which will be replacing most of our other meeting subscriptions.

Town of Silverthorne

The Town of Silverthorne recently replaced our outdated and end-of-life ShoreTel phone system with GoTo Connect VoIP phone system through TechnologyWest. We wanted to move our PBX system to the cloud to take advantage of the additional functionality of GoTo Connect’s mobile and softphone plus GoTo Meeting unified communications platform. TechnologyWest was there every step of the onboarding process. By moving to the cloud, the Town of Silverthorne was also able to eliminate our PRI circuit.

This E-Book covers departmental challenges across, Sales, Support, HR, Marketing, Product, and IT, and how Dialpad addresses those challenges.
