Teo, a company once known as Tone Commander Systems that powers a robust unified communications portfolio to enable global workforces to increase productivity no matter their physical location, recently unveiled its Next Gen mobility suite. Encompassing voice, HD video, unified presence, and instant messaging, user’s on-the-go can leverage both iPhone and Android smartphones as well as an iPads, and this toolset can be used in conjunction with the extremely popular Teo Unified Communications Platform.

In a time in history in which businesses need to do more with a limited budget, the unified communications offering is enabling these companies to fully optimize an array of devices from anywhere with an Internet connection and at any time. This helps to not only streamline operations but also reduce costs and ramp up efficiency.

“As more businesses recognize the opportunities to enhance productivity by fully empowering mobile workers, investing in a truly unified communications system will continue to be a key component of their business strategy,” said Thomas Beck, director of Marketing and Business Development at Teo, in a statement. “By supporting the broadest choice of mobile devices for our innovative UC platform, we are opening up yet another avenue for businesses to gain easy access to cost-efficient and advanced technology capabilities. Simplifying and unifying the way they work will help pave their path to success.”

In a recent study released by analyst firm Frost & Sullivan, findings show that in the next 12-month period unified communications and collaboration (UCC) and information and the communications (ICT) spaces are likely to come together. Targeting C-suite members of North American countries in order to get an in depth look into what these individuals truly think of their IT behavior now and how it will be altered in the near future, the consumerization of IT was highlighted as one of the challenges currently that companies are being forced to overcome. This term is defined as the combining of both personal and business technological innovations that involves IT workers investing their own money into resources that will then be leveraged to complete multiple tasks.

 In addition, the increasingly popular BYOD (bring your own device) trend is also being utilized within a larger amount work workplaces, which has driven 35 percent of those polled to reveal they will be raising their IT budgets in 2013. Over a quarter of the survey respondents also revealed they are hard at work attempting to revolutionize their companies, changing them “into more agile and mobile contenders,” according to a recent Teo blog post.

As mobility increases throughout firms around the globe, unified communications is a key element that employees must have access to in order to collaborate and communicate more seamlessly than ever before.
