The way we communicate is changing. In the past few years we've seen the introduction of a variety of new mediums for both business and personal communications. Email, the Web, fax, Internet chat, videoconferencing and whiteboarding are just a few examples of technologies that are playing an increasingly important role in the way we communicate every day. The traditional business phone system is a tool optimized specifically for voice communication. In a world where the way we communicate is changing, so too will the role of the business phone system. Already we've seen the introduction of a wide range of Next Generation solutions designed to take advantage of the convergence of data, voice and video.
If you find yourself in the process of selecting a new phone system, then this book is for you. In this book, we'll explore a whole new generation of voice communication solutions and provide you practical information and advice to help you make sense of this exploding market and select the appropriate solution for your business.
