Supply and demand is the oldest market measurement tool. In the world of business collaboration, tradition meets cutting edge, as customer demand drives the supply of hybrid communications and collaboration services.
Once a primarily hardware-based model, increasingly companies are recognising the value of software and cloud-based solutions, products and applications. The reluctance of businesses to invest in a complex premises-based integrated communications solution is leading to a transition in the market, and Esna is leading the way in delivering these new-look business communication models.
As well as reducing capital costs, a third party managed hybrid communications and collaboration solution helps to reduce operational and staffing costs, and of course offers a lower carbon footprint compared with physical solutions.
For Esna clients however, all these are simply a bonus. The real benefit comes from the new communication and collaboration capabilities offered by cloud-based applications, leveling the playing field by allowing smaller organisations to adopt a model previously only afforded by market leaders.
In a recent IDC study on hybrid unified communications solutions, results indicated that hosted or cloud-based communications models have started to widen their grip on the sector, with 45% of respondents showing either current or planned collaboration strategy of this nature.
Perhaps more interesting to most businesses, however is the hybrid model, which utilises existing on-premises investment, combined with operational expense (opex) benefits of cloud-based services.
While most organisations accept the inevitability of business communications being primarily off-premises in the future, for the time being many Esna clients are more comfortable with a transitional approach to the adoption of hosted or cloud-based offerings.
Esna can equip your business with a model that suits your existing needs, whilst also allowing you to focus on the future. Speak to us today.
