There is no way back after this pandemic and that is why hybrid telephony is important. Both organisations and employees have experienced the possibilities of the new way of working. 10% of the organisations have already adopted the strategy to continue working from home fully. 60% sees a hybrid model as their best fit. The remaining 30% that insist on a fully in-office model, will only find that employees simply won’t have it. This is what Forrester has found in their research:
Companies with a fully in-office model will see resignation rates rise to 2.5% per month.
Whether these numbers are 100% correct or not, one thing is certain: The way we communicate has changed and will keep on changing. And that makes the choice for the right and flexible Hybrid Telephony solution crucial.
Flexibility in Connectivity and Routing
In order to fulfill the ever changing needs of your organisation, telephony needs to be able to connect natively to any system that is or will be relevant for your organisation.
Via MCXess it is possible to forward call from a single number to multiple systems and locations. That enables getting the most of the total instead of suboptimisation of (sub) systems. SIP, MS Teams, PSTN, Genesys, Avaya or any other system: Anything can be combined.
Thanks to our the central and hybrid telephony infra, it is possible to maintain a uniform appearance. Everybody can call out with their direct, department or company number. It does not matter where a user is calling from, their desk phone, MS Teams or even internal or external contact centers.
Thanks to the native hybrid telephony architecture of MCXess, boundaries are gone.
Hybrid working and Hybrid Telephony is the hype for a while now. But what is it, why is it important and what opportunities does it provide?
Find clarity and answers in our complementary Whitepaper.
Telephony systems and Office automation suffer from a lot of overlap in functionality and connectivity.
Both offer communication possibilities. Both systems assign phone numbers to users or groups of users. Both manage availability. Etc. Maintain synergy with this requires complex integration projects and even more costly maintenance overhead.
These issues and cost are in the past with the MCXess Native Hybrid Telephony solution. Achieve a clear and uniform architecture without any overlap.
No Migration Required
Thanks to the native hybrid architecture no cumbersome migration projects are required. There is no need for a (dedicated) SBC. Not on location and not in the cloud. You do not have to interrupt your current connection and can maintain your current infrastructure.
Simply switch the relevant part of the calls to the new destination when and where required. SIP, MS Teams and PSTN destinations can all be used blended.
