Unified Communications (UC) is the perfect solution for any business that is looking to drive productivity, improve performance and reduce costs as UC is the next evolution of communications and related technologies.
Key Benefits to Unified Communication:

A Phase-in approach to Unified Communication allows businesses to address their most important challenges and deliver excellent return on investment. Communication solutions can be updated over time and at your own pace, without disrupting or replacing existing infrastructure.
ShoreTel has designed a fully distributed Unified Communications system based on unique and innovative architecture that is purpose-built with no single point of failure. Distributed architecture incorporates a switch-based hardware platform that makes each switch and site and independent call processor which continues to operate seamlessly in the event of wide area network (WAN) failure. Unlike other solutions, all servers can be disconnected from the ShoreGear switches and the ShoreTel phone system will continue to place and receive calls.
