2020 is here, and sometimes it looks like communication and collaboration platforms used in healthcare are not keeping up with the times. According to a study, nearly 80 percent of hospitals still use pagers and a survey showed that almost 52% of physicians said that these devices are one of their most significant sources of frustration. Pagers have existed since the 1950s, and because they work on a much higher frequency than cell phones, they allow doctors to be reachable despite x-ray proof walls and poor cell phone coverage, so it seems like pagers will still hang around at least for a few more years, but... how can we get healthcare professionals better communicated?
Deploying K-12 Communication Networks
A communication network is one of the most vital pieces of infrastructure for any educational institution. Parents, teachers, administration, and sometimes even students rely on this network to stay informed and productive. A school’s wide range of users makes the network more complex when compared to others. It’s important to create an inbound call strategy prior to deploying a unified communications solution to ensure that the communication process is easy and streamlined for everyone involved. Continue reading to learn 4 tips that will help you create an inbound strategy that is perfect for parents, staff, and students alike.

How one feature enhances facility communications
Education campuses, hotels, commercial buildings, hospitals, and large office complexes are all able to streamline communications and security by paging an entire network or group of devices. Adding an intercom or paging solution to your deployment enables users to take advantage of facility-wide communications. However, sometimes this paging system is used by multiple departments and users. This high demand on the paging system could cause critical pages to be delayed or go completely unheard. Multicast paging helps solve this dilemma.

There is no ‘official’ definition for the term Unified Communications (UC), but most you find will focus on the integration of voice, video, data and mobility into a centralized communication network. While UC still revolves around the integration of these four platforms, the technology that makes up each of those areas, and how we use them, has evolved quite a bit. In the same way that the term “Web 2.0” was coined to differentiate the newer generation of internet technology, maybe it is time to usher in "UC 2.0". UC is no longer just traditional VoIP systems combined with SIP or H.323 video conferencing room systems – it is smart devices, mobile apps, collaboration tools and specialized data management platforms. This blog will highlight the current landscape of UC solutions to show what has changed and preview what may be the next major advancements in the UC ecosystem.

Face-to-face interaction is the key in everyday life, so why miss out on the valuable connections you can make with in-person conversation? In the workplace, productivity is key and more of our daily activities can be completed at the desktop than ever before. It’s increasingly more common to email or instant message someone to get in touch with them in place of walking down the hall to chat in person. While these methods may be more convenient, about twenty-six percent of employers consider email to be a major productivity killer. Face-to-face interaction, especially in the business world, is what helps people be productive, cooperate, and stay connected. This type of interaction is an important tool that establishes trust, rapport, and helps to build a stronger and more meaningful relationship.
