Communications Your Way...
At COMMWORLD, we love office phones! But, we also know they're
not the only effective way to communicate. Cell phones, voice mail, email, video
conferencing or instant messaging may be the best tool in a given situation. Unified
Communications can bring all those channels and more together to create a more complete,
productive communications system for your business.
This technology has now become cost-effective in the small and midsize business
arena. A Gartner Research Report in April 2010 stated, "Unified communications can
improve the way that small and midsize businesses interact and perform tasks...SMBs
should review how this emerging generation of communications can improve their business
operations and processes."
Toshiba is one of only a handful of preferred providers included in the report.
The following comments are included in the Gartner Research findings:
- Toshiba is known for producing reliable, solid offerings that work well together.
The company is known to focus on its core market and business, which is small business
communications, and to produce only those things that are integral to this market.
- Compared with competitor offerings, Toshiba offers very attractive pricing and

Unifying Business Communications
Integrated communications channels provide for clear messaging on multiple levels.
By Bob Bennett
"When words are scarce they are seldom spent in vain."
To paraphrase Shakespeare's quote, “When communication is efficient, it's more effective.”
Perhaps if he had used unified communication his literary affect on the world might
have been even greater than what it was. The increased efficiency and effectiveness
provided by unified communication (UC) tools could have increased his volume, improved
his quality and expanded his reputation to levels even more impressive.
