Cisco Unified Communications: Real Stories from Businesses Like Yours

Work from Anywhere:

Work from Anywhere “Work is no longer a place. Work is where you are.” Alan Sears, President TBL Networks, Inc. Virginia, USA Cisco ® Unified Communications helped TBL Networks look like a big company and fulfill a big company promise by making its staff easy to reach… in the office, at customer sites, at home, or on the move. When customers or co-workers need to reach someone at TBL, they dial a single number that rings the staff member’s office phone, cell phone, and home-office phone. “We have just one phone number on our business cards, along with the line “How many phone numbers do you have?’” Customers appreciate the simplicity, and the TBL staff appreciates the time saved. http://preview.tinyurl.com/5t7cn2

Improve Productivity and Customer Service:

Improve Productivity and Customer Service “This is my workspace. When you work on cars, you trade time for dollars.” Derek Latham Seyfer Automotive Colorado, USA With a Cisco ® Unified Communications Solution, Seyfer technicians use wireless phones to talk to customers and access information from anywhere in the shop, so they do more and walk around less. The Cisco system also provides a single point of administration for Seyfer’s firewall, wireless network, VPN connections for email, and more… in addition to managing the company’s phone system. By saving the service manager 30 minutes a day, sales potential is increased by $200 to $400.

Improve Productivity:

Improve Productivity “Video changed the way we work with suppliers.” Claire Evans amaZulu , Inc. Florida, USA When you’re working with suppliers half-way around the world, selecting materials can be a real challenge. With Cisco ® Unified Video Advantage, part of the complete Cisco Unified Communications Solution, a phone call becomes a video conference. amaZulu can compare samples, make decisions, and begin product shipments in a fraction of the time. To be more competitive, sometimes you have to change the way you work. www.cisco.com/smb

Connect Your Phone and Desktop:

Connect Your Phone and Desktop “I do everything through my PC. I never touch the phone.” Margaret Chase Everything Tradeshows Florida, USA Cisco ® Unified Communications Solutions do far more than integrate messaging by putting voicemail into your email. Cisco Unified CallConnectors embed unified communications functions into the PC-based applications you and your staff use every day… Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, applications such as Salesforce.com, and more. You can place calls and answer calls without touching your phone… use presence capabilities to determine if a co-worker is available, send an instant message, transfer calls, and more. http://www.testbells.com/640-461.html

Integrate Business Applications:

Integrate Business Applications “My staff spent 4 hours a day making appointment reminder calls. Now the system places the calls.” Dr. Sunita Jayakar Practice Owner California, USA One of the most powerful productivity tools integrated into the Cisco ® solution built for Dr. Jayakar and Associates is the company’s automated appointment reminder system. On-screen voicemail and separate mailboxes for patients, doctors, pharmacies, and insurance companies also increase productivity by reducing the time spent simply managing messages. http://tinyurl.com/5l3a7w
