As we are about to enter the last quarter of the year, now is the time to supercharge your sales revenues by taking a chunk of the whopping $34.8 billion unified communications (UC) market. By partnering with Star2Star, you get a supplier that understands your critical needs as a channel partner and access to a differentiating option for your portfolio.
UC is not a market to ignore: According to Global Market Insights, UC sales are expected to top $96 billion by 2023. There are a number of workplace trends that are spurring this, and you’re probably hearing about it from your customers and prospects.
The steady proliferation of hosted products will be one of the key unified communications market trends, with the hosted market expected to surpass $49 billion by 2023 (up from over $14 billion in revenue last year). The firm said the rising adoption of mobile devices is underpinning much of this, given that total mobile subscriptions by 2023 are forecast to exceed 9.5 billion, with smartphones leading growth and overall mobile data traffic.
Cloud-based UC combines telephony, enterprise messaging, presence technology, video conferencing, online meeting capabilities and more, providing flexibility and scalability along with high availability for core business tasks. As a channel partner, you can offer your customers a range of business benefits: cost-effectiveness, the ability to eliminate capital spending, slashed monthly expenses, and the reduction of travel time. Cloud-based UC also makes it much easier for distributed workforces with multiple locations or segments of workers (road warriors, telecommuters, freelancers, and et cetera.) to get on the same page with the same core business tools in a user-friendly way. Business users can remain productive, even while on the road.
Some verticals are particularly hot right now: The report pointed out that the government sector has witnessed increased adoption of UC systems, especially when it comes to public safety. These solutions help governments to effectively deal with emergencies and supports effective crisis conferencing. The report estimates revenue from this segment alone to exceed $20 billion by 2023.
