What is Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS)?
Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) delivers synchronized business communications technologies on one cloud-based platform. UCaaS service providers utilize voice over internet protocol (VOIP) and related internet protocol (IP) telephony technology to connect traditional business phone systems with instant messaging, video conferencing and related web services. The enterprise communication advantages of UCaaS include improved collaboration across teams, quick deployment, adaptability, and a reduced total cost of ownership.
