Businesses Starting to Move Toward Cloud Communications

We have heard about cloud communication for quite some time now. Experts have said for years that this is the direction businesses will be heading when it comes to communications, but there hasn’t been much movement in that direction.

That is, until now.

Businesses have begun moving toward cloud based communications, and in a big way. A recent survey discovered that 30 percent of businesses with more than 1,000 employees currently use the cloud for their PBX functions, a big jump from 22 percent last year. The same survey discovered that 41 percent of the subset of these businesses use cloud-based UC.

The increase among all businesses was also impressive over the past year. The survey discovered that 28 percent of businesses used cloud PBX last year, which was an 8 eight percent gain from the previous year.

These changes are a result of businesses deciding to make the leap to the cloud, and vendors pushing for the changes to happen. Cisco and Microsoft have been two leaders in making this change happen. Cisco is pushing its cloud-based communication system Spark, which is integrated with Apple CallKit API so iPhone users can use their mobile phones for UC functions. Microsoft’s big push has been with Skype for Business.

Suppliers for these platforms have made their decision for what direction they would like to see businesses communication take. No it is time for your business to choose which direction it will be taking.
