Improving Legacy Telephony Systems Through Unified Communications and Collaboration

How is your telephony system? Is it the best it can be or is it struggling to meet yours and your customers’ needs?  

For many businesses, it is the latter. However, there is hope. Many organisations are finding that through Unified Communications and Collaboration software, they are driving their legacy telephony systems towards the future, whether as a replacement, or in unison. Even if you think that your system is a lost cause, we’re here to tell you that it is possible to bring it up to date. 

Why is your telephony system lagging behind?  

There are several reasons why your phone system may be lagging. The obvious one is the lack of modern hardware and software, with some organisations running off of outdated telephony systems.  

As you are no doubt aware, technology moves fast, so your business can be behind with legacy systems that are not flexible enough to change with the times. This is an issue that is less of a problem with UCC solutions that can adapt and integrate with new technology and capable of improving legacy hardware and software as well.  

It’s not just technology that can be falling behind, but also support. An old system or way of working will also fail to have the support it requires from the original manufacture or third-party. Like with technology, support moves on and focuses on the fresh new thing, so with tech that is unable to keep up with the times, you’ll find that you’ll be left scratching your head with little back up from manufacturers. 

Why is there a need to change?   

These days, customers demand more from businesses when it comes to how they interact and we are aware that some businesses are, in simple terms, stuck with certain parts of the system they have for many legacy reasons. UCC can bring them up to speed. Whether that is by working in conjunction with legacy tech, or as a replacement, if not at the time, then certainly later if possible.  

Your business needs to keep up with change, the demands from consumers are growing as they want instant responses to questions, notifications on where tickets and requests are at, and so much more. Old systems just cannot keep up. UCC, whether with or without legacy software, can help you to mitigate many issues.
