Why should I be considering cloud communications?
You would have had to be living in a remote wilderness recently to not have heard of Cloud IT services. The concept is familiar to most people these days as a result of wide-stream media publicity by large technology companies, such as Apple, Google and Microsoft. Furthermore, cloud technology services such as file-sharing, data backup and e-mail have been widely adopted by businesses in recent years due to a greater appreciation of the benefits of cloud rental models. Managed, highly-available technology services, delivered over fast, reliable Internet connectivity is a more practical and economical option, one that is now increasingly favoured over investment in office-based systems with expensive running costs. By comparison, far fewer people are aware that the same approach can be applied to business telephone communications and, in fact, that innovative and highly developed platforms have been available to deliver this for quite some years.

Things got a bit more streamlined at the turn of the century with powerful, yet compact, desktop systems and flat screens that came alive with media-rich content. One of the few constants that has remained during this evolution is Microsoft Office, the family name for Word, Excel and PowerPoint later joined by Outlook, adding new and more innovative ways of making businesses more productive.
Today’s modern business looks vastly different to that of ju ...
