Digium Webinar Series Helps Businesses Understand Unified Communications Phone System Choices, Compare Return on Investment
HUNTSVILLE, Ala., November 8, 2011 — Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, today announced the "Understanding the Best Value in Phone Systems" webinar series. Led by Angie Reed, VoIP expert and Digium's Switchvox product marketing manager, this educational webinar series is designed to help companies realize how much more they could save by replacing their existing phone system and compare the savings that exist with Unified Communications (UC) solutions. The webinars will take place at 12:00 p.m. CST on November 15 and 16, and December 14 and 15.
The four sessions will explore a variety of topics relating to UC and the current and future impact it can have on businesses. The sessions will explore the following topics:
- How upgrading to UC is more affordable than keeping an old phone system
- How UC can help your business
- Top technology trends and planning ideas for 2012
- Overview of phone system features and pricing
- UC vendors that deliver best return on investment (ROI) and value
- Features that improve productivity, including UC, mobility, collaboration, video and communications-enabled business processes (CEBP)
Webinar attendees will take away information to help evaluate the true cost of a phone system, tips to avoid being locked into equipment from a single vendor, and accurately identify the features a business communication system needs, without paying for expensive add-ons.
"With so many options readily available, businesses need to ask the right questions to truly understand price and feature comparisons between VoIP systems," said Reed. "Companies may not realize how much more they could save by upgrading their phone system - their old system could actually be costing them more. This webinar series will help businesses navigate the virtually endless waters of UC offerings to clearly understand the benefits of a UC solution that meets the needs of their organization."

Additionally, all attendees will receive a free copy of the Frost and Sullivan Best Value Guide. In this Best Practices Research, leading analysts from Frost & Sullivan reviewed features, pricing and value when looking at the trends affecting businesses, and, based on this information, determined which UC vendors deliver on all three.
