Communication – The Most Important Business Skill

Communication – The Most Important Business Skill 

 “Are you a team player?” – If you’ve interviewed for any position in the last five years, chances are you would have heard this question. But have you ever wondered what has made teamwork more important in business over the last few years?

It’s because we live in an era of specialization. Human knowledge has expanded so much in recent years that individual knowledge is siloed, where no single individual can work effectively outside the confines of a larger team. For example, consider science – in a previous era, discoveries were all done by individual geniuses; today, it takes a multinational team numbering in the thousands to run and decipher the results of the Large Hadron Collider.

The world of business is no different, where teams of talented individuals with complementary competencies come together to achieve success. That’s why I call communication the most important business skill of all, and present these information assets that can help you optimally leverage the latest in technology for improved communications.

1. Unified Communications Buyer’s Guide 

With so many communications tools in use, how can management ensure that interactions adhere to firm policies and sensitive data is not leaked, while providing a uniform user experience? Unified Communications is the answer, and this white paper shows how you can do it better.

2. Using Cloud Communications for a Competitive Advantage 

Like many areas in computing today, communications too can be better in the Cloud. From this webinar, learn how cloud communications can help you address key business objectives, such as:

  • Significantly reduced IT department’s telecommunications workload
  • Lowered communications costs and consistent OPEX spending
  • Much higher call quality along with better internal and external customer service

3. A New Approach to Communications as a Service (CaaS) 

After IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, the next cloud revolution will be in CaaS. CaaS allows businesses to selectively deploy communications devices and modes on a pay-as-you-go, as-needed basis, significantly reducing CAPEX and OPEX. This paper shows how you can deploy a CaaS system and get a positive ROI from the start.

4. Mobile Device Management Buyers Guide 

Mobile devices – phones, tablets and laptops – are ubiquitous nowadays, and business should embrace them for maximum productivity. However, how do you address the new security challenges that will arise? This paper can show you how to strike a balance between productivity and security.

5. Getting Ahead in Managing VoIP and Video Conferencing Performance and Quality 

VoIP and video conferencing can go a long way in cutting operational expenses while allowing a dispersed workforce to collaborate effectively. At the same time, networks must be optimized for preferred delivery of these new communication streams, which require low latency, congestion mitigation, and minimal packet loss. Read this paper on how this can be achieved.

6. Buying a Phone System? Compare the Top 74 Business Phone Systems 

When buying a phone system, it’s always good to have options, and more importantly, being able to compare them. This spreadsheet allows you to do exactly that.
