  • Integrate UC platform with business-critical SaaS for competitive edge

    By one current estimate, the average business operates across six different clouds. With many software-as-a-service platforms still unable to communicate with each other, enterprise workers must straddle the space between them -- leading to inefficient work processes at best, and missed business opportunities at worst.
