Mid-market Businesses Turn to UCaaS to Empower Remote Teams for the New Normal

SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In recent years, businesses have focused on deploying digital technologies such as cloud computing, Anything-as-a-Service (XaaS), Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), advanced mobility, and blockchain. However, priorities changed when the COVID-19 pandemic prompted a shift to remote working models. To address the urgent need to support employees in home offices, businesses —especially in the mid-market segment— have turned to Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) solutions to close operational and communications gaps and enhance business continuity, specifically around enabling collaboration among geographically disparate teams.

Frost & Sullivan's unique thought leadership paper, UCaaS Adoption in the Age of COVID-19, examines the increased options for mid-market businesses deploying remote-workforce models. It analyzes evolving market trends and assesses how UCaaS solutions can support both the short-term goal of remote collaboration, as well as long-term initiatives around digital transformation and business continuity. Strategic recommendations for mid-market businesses looking to adopt cloud communications solutions as a long-term competitive enabler are also defined.
