Alteva Exec to Talk UC as Productivity Booster at ITEXPO Panel


September 12, 2011

“There are many different drivers when it comes to creating efficiency and improving workplace productivity. Implementing various types of technologies, especially those of a collaborative nature, top that list including hosted VoIP and UC,” according to William Bumbernick, founder and chief innovation consultant for Alteva. “Not only will collaborative technologies save money, but allow businesses to streamline processes, permitting more time to concentrate on what they do best – be it customer service, sales, or innovation.”

This statement by Bumbernick is a reflection of what he, as well as executives from leading business communications companies Digium, Fonality and ICON Voice Networks, will voice to attendees during a SMB panel at ITEXPO West, being held this week in Austin, Texas.

The session, entitled “Unified Communications Unleashed,” is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 14, from 9 to 9:45 a.m. Representing Alteva, a Philadelphia-based cloud-based unified communications solutions provider, Bumbernick will share with the audience the true benefits of UC for the SMB market, as well as best practices, deployment options, strategic opportunities, integration into current processes and technologies, and end-user education.

This session follows hot on the heels of a recent Webtorials survey that discovered that decreasing an employee’s unproductive time by 25 percent can produce an extra six weeks in productivity each year, posing an urgent call to action for business owners to adjust existing inefficient communications issues. The session is geared to help attendees define a clear goal for driving UC implementation in their respective businesses.
