Communications Check List

Four basic communications points to review to be sure you are ready for business in 2013.
1. Look at your bill from your provider – while this may seem simple , it’s suprising how many people don’t really review their actual bill periodically. Be sure to look for things like unnecessary charges and services that you aren’t using or don’t need. This applies to both the bill for your voice services and your internet , expecially if they are two separate bills.

2. Are your customers getting busy signals or do you have an unusual amount of calls going to voicemail? This could be a sign that your voice services are under provisioned or other problems.

3. Take a long hard look at your internet bandwidth. Every company is growing more and more dependent on internet based applications and programs. Do you have sufficient bandwidth to be able to handle all the Web 2.0 and internet portal applications that are coming down the pipe?

4. Are you and your employees as mobile as you need to be? Mobility is one of the bigest pluses of the new age. Fully taking advantage of Unified Communications and Collaboration can be a huge boost to productivity.

These are just a few of the things you can and should examine to insure that your business is ready for the changes that are coming your way in 2013 and beyond.
