How to Keep Up, Stay on Budget as Communication Needs Evolve
In this sponsored post, Nokia explains how an enterprise can replace a PBX with an open, cloud-based platform while staying on budget.
The Internet, mobile devices, and apps are rapidly changing the way employees and consumers communicate. But, at the same time, we hear how difficult it is for enterprises to adopt these new communication modes because of budget constraints and costs associated with legacy PBX maintenance.
Enterprises need a new approach that once again allows them to add new services, reduce costs, and thrive in an environment of continuous technology change. An open, cloud-based communication platform can give enterprises the control they desire, as well as provide the increased business focus and agility needed to gain strategic advantage over competitors. And this all can be done within an enterprise's current PBX maintenance budget.
With an open, cloud-based comms platform, an enterprise can partition the transformation costs into smaller pieces rather than bundle them for a single large project. This means that -- with the right solution, such as the Nokia Rapport platform -- an enterprise can start with a small base implementation that just replaces the current PBX functions. Once that project is complete, it can launch additional bite-sized transformations that drive the environment to meet specific requirements.
An enterprise can make the initial move to a cloud-based PBX replacement platform within the current PBX maintenance budget, while justifying the additional projects by a closer mapping between business benefit and the investment required.
