The Modern Phone System
Not much about the way people used telephones to communicate with businesses changed from the '50s through the end of the century. But as use of the Internet became more widespread and Web-enabled mobile devices accelerated the need for change, today’s mobile, flexible, social and always-on modern company was born. In order to match the way companies and workers operate today, a modern phone system is required. Join us to learn how the modern phone system must get organizations out of the business of running a phone system, contribute to revenue growth, be accessible from everywhere and stay modern.
