CSP and 8×8 recently hosted a networking event at Drive Shack, to great success!
Collaboration at Drive Shack
The CSP, Inc. team recently co-hosted an event with our preferred hosted phone solution vendor 8×8 at Drive Shack. We invited members of the local Raleigh business community to come out for an afternoon of networking and fun, during which we talked about the growing role collaboration, and technologies that support it, are playing the modern business world.
The event, which took place on Sept. 25, was a huge success, with everyone enjoying good company and a few rounds of interactive golf. We enjoy putting on events like these because they offer the best of both worlds – a chance to learn and a chance to have fun.
Talking Collaboration with CSP and 8×8
In the modern business world, collaboration is vital – every moving part in your business needs to stay connected and in sync in order to meet the expectations of your clients. It’s no secret; technology is the driving force behind effective collaboration for businesses.
Employees are no longer simply stuck behind desks waiting for their work phone to ring. Workforces are mobile, getting work done from wherever it’s most convenient. This requires the capability to share files securely and conveniently.
8×8, and the VoIP technology they provide, is a key player in that space – by hosting your phone system through the cloud, your connectivity and means of collaboration improve, allowing you to stay connected and in-the-loop even when you’re on the go.
How VoIP Supports Your Collaboration
VoIP provides improved efficiency by limiting issues that come from having to replace or fix on-premise equipment, as well as complicated management of adding and/or removing employees. All this time spent waiting is time when you and your team can’t work.
With a hosted phone solution, you don’t have to deal with these issues, which means less downtime. A hosted phone solution also improves efficiency by providing you with numerous options for routing and answering calls, without the expensive of on-premise technology and staff.
With an assigned business phone number, you and your employees can take work calls on any device they like, both in and out of the office. This is especially powerful for businesses with mobile, remote workers, and Bring Your Own Device Policies.
Whether your employees are in a single location or at multiple sites, desk-bound or road-bound, taking inbound calls or making outbound calls, VoIP provides a solution that best fits your business communication style.
Are You Collaborating Effectively?
This was a key question we wanted attendees at our Drive Shack event to answer. Are your methods of communication helping or hurting your team’s efforts to collaborate with one another? If you’re not collaborating effectively, then you’re wasting time and money in an unoptimized system.
