Evoke Telecom are pleased to welcome another star guest blogger to our site in the form of Will Morey, Marketing Director and co founder at Pragma , the sole distributor for Ericsson-LG telephony in the UK.
Will has some 15 years of senior leadership roles to add to his MBA , including work for and on behalf of Channel 4, First Group and the UK Government. A real champion of ‘start-ups’, it is no surprise that Will co-founded Pragma, driving Ericsson-LG technology to deliver cost effective and efficient Unified Communication’s solutions into the UK SMB and Mid-Market space.
This month Will pick up the subject of ‘UC in the SMB’ segment. A thought provoking read which we hope you will enjoy. Let us know what you think ……
“Working in the technology industry means speaking in acronyms is second nature and only when you step outside of the world of technology do you fully appreciate quite how annoying constant acronyms and TLAs (Three Letter Acronyms) are.
The latest technology with a catchy acronym is UC. This stands for Unified Communication which is probably equally as baffling for most businesses who don’t spend their day thinking about technology but would rather be using it without having to think. Ideally businesses quite simply wanted to appreciate and enjoy the benefits that it delivers.
The challenge for technology providers is to make really clear the benefits that new technology can bring. Unified Communication is a great example of this. The normal work day has changed significantly. It starts earlier, finishes later and isn’t bound to an office or a desk. We are all working on our smartphone from early in the morning until late at night and we are doing this at home, in the car, in airport lounges, hotels and occasionally at our offices. The key to all this work is it should be just as easy regardless of location. We also need to be able to quickly access our colleagues and draw on their knowledge and expertise to help us regardless of whether they are also in the office. It is this challenge that unified communications helps us meet head on.
Unified Communication technology from Ericsson-LG is about making life in a complex business world easier. It’s about making sure the people you need to speak to are available by phone, video or instant message. It’s about being able to share that document for feedback and get your teams opinion without having to be sitting next to each other. It’s about controlling your phone calls and voicemails on screen or your tablet with a mouse click or gesture.
All of this is available now for your business at a cost that means small and growing business can get a return on their investment in weeks and months not years. Ericsson-LG iPECS unified communications technology was designed from the ground up to meet the needs of small and growing businesses.”
