Unified communications: It's time to work ... and play

A new study issued by Interactive Intelligence and conducted by Vanson Bourne says 87 percent of businesses are looking to invest in unified communications solutions. That level of interest might even seem more surprising at a time when you would expect the wobbly economy to be causing hiccups in new spending programs for a lot of companies. Perhaps these businesses are catching on to the enhanced productivity, efficiency and cost value to be gained from unified communications. That means service providers had better be ready to deliver.

Still, the service provider industry may be lacking unified communications clarity. Well, there may be no better place to find it than at The Unified Communications Conference, hosted by FierceVoIP and FierceTelecom, and taking place June 18 and June 19 at NXTcomm in Las Vegas. Hope to see you there, so we can together explore the new world of UC. Industry expert speakers such as TELUS CTO Ibrahim Gedeon, Qwest vice president Eric Bozich and BT sector expert Scott Scharf will guide us. 

And, the night before the conference, why don't you meet up with us for some Vegas-style fun?
