The Importance of Communication and Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS)

Fact: Communication is essential to life.

We use many forms of communication each day to convey how we feel, to work with others and to socialise. So, it comes as no surprise to know that businesses thrive when built on a foundation of effective communication. In fact, good communication has been found to have a direct correlation to higher morale and greater loyalty within companies. This in turn leads to improved work efficiency in a happier environment with maximised productivity.

On the other hand, miscommunication or a lack of communication can be extremely damaging to a company and can lead to significant costs. One survey by Expert Market during 2021 showed that 97% of workers believe that communication impacts tasks every day and miscommunication costs companies with 100 employees an average of £323,000 per year! 

In contrast, organisations with connected employees show productivity increases of 20-25%. 

 

Statistics of Miscommunication

Is there room for communication improvement in your business?

These are substantial figures that can’t be ignored. 

Even when good communication lines are in place within a business, the need to switch between internal and external communication channels can be a drain on your company’s time and resources. 
 

For example, switching between different apps for different purposes such as, Skype for internal calls, WebEx for conferences and WhatsApp for messaging can unknowingly sap minutes, which when multiplied across the whole work force can quickly turn into many hours. And that’s without mentioning the multiple subscription costs encountered in running these services.

This is where smart working and Unified Communications as a Service can help.
