    Cisco UC: Modernize with what you already use

    For organizations already leveraging Cisco technologies for network infrastructure and data storage, making the move from legacy PBX to a Cisco Unified Communications solution makes a lot of sense.

    Migrating to Cisco Unified Communications (UC) offers several benefits for organizations that want to streamline their IT operations and move most (if not all) of their core communication channels to the cloud. In most cases (and well within reason), telephony is the laggard when it comes to cloud-delivered service adoption at large organizations with complex calling environments. 

    But, alas, the voice-to-cloud transformation is now in full swing at most enterprises. Some are in the pre-planning and discovery phases while others are in some phase of deployment or Day Two.

    With Cisco widely embraced by healthcare organizations, we see hospitals of all sizes shrinking their on-prem and analog footprint as much as possible, in favor of some flavor of Cisco Unified Call Manager. But healthcare isn't the only industry designing its cloud-forward calling plans around Cisco UC. We work with wide-ranging businesses that see great benefit in building out their Cisco ecosystem. And, in almost all cases, this is a pretty unassailable position. So, what are you waiting for? 

    5 Key Benefits of Cisco UC for enterprise organizations:

    1. Integration with existing Cisco infrastructure

    If an organization is already using Cisco products for data and IT infrastructure, migrating to Cisco UC can offer seamless integration with its existing infrastructure, allowing for easy management and monitoring of all network resources.

    2. Improved collaboration and communication

    Cisco UC offers a range of collaboration and communication tools, including voice and video calling, messaging, conferencing, and more. By migrating to Cisco UC, organizations can improve their internal and external communication, leading to increased productivity and collaboration.

    3. Cost savings

    By consolidating communication tools into a single platform, organizations can save money on hardware, software, and maintenance costs. Cisco UC also allows for centralized management and monitoring of all communication tools, reducing the need for IT resources to manage multiple systems.

    4. Scalability and flexibility

    Cisco UC is a scalable and flexible solution that can grow and adapt to an organization's changing needs. This allows organizations to add new features and capabilities as needed without having to completely overhaul their communication infrastructure. 

    5. Security

    Cisco UC offers robust security features to protect against cyber threats and ensure the confidentiality and integrity of communication. By migrating to Cisco UC, organizations can take advantage of these security features to protect their communication systems and data.

    The Verdict

    Overall, migrating to Cisco UC—and Cisco Unified Call Manager (CUCM), in particular—can offer significant benefits for organizations that are already using Cisco technology for data and IT infrastructure. By consolidating tools, improving collaboration and communication, and gaining enterprise-grade scalability, flexibility, and security, organizations can improve their overall efficiency and productivity while reducing costs.
