It used to be a symbol of power to carry multiple phones and have multiple reach numbers. The trend today, however, is toward simplification and the “power of one.”
With the right software, businesses can direct calls, text messages, and emails to a single user with a single, simple application, with so much intelligence built in that the people contacting that person also enjoy an easy experience. This concept has been promised for the last ten years by what the industry has coined “Unified Communications,” but today with the advancement of the cloud, more sophisticated software solutions, and the ability to layer over existing directories and “office phone systems” we’re really starting to get to a new state of the art.
A “one number” mobility solution enables businesses who already rely on the premises-based PBX they’ve invested in for year the ability to expand the reach of the business line to an IP connected smartphone anywhere in the world. Now it is not only possible but actionable to associate smartphone and tablet apps that employees to make and receive voice and video calls as if they were sitting at their desk. With one number that can reach both desk and mobile phones, employees are reachable in and out of the office.
What’s even more compelling for CIOS – and CFOS – is that when used in conjunction with WiFi hotspots, roaming and long distance charges can also be significantly reduced, and in some cases eliminated when users are “on-net.”
