Five ways Circuit empowers your business (Part 4)

Posted by PRS Telecom

We spend an increasing amount of time communicating and collaborating in all walks of life, but especially within the business sphere. Using this time efficiently is, therefore, a major concern, as inefficient communication is a major barrier to business success.

PRS Telecom is the premier UK provider for Circuit by Unify, a cross-platform unified communications application that aims to eliminate this barrier, by bringing together a number of communications channels, including chat, email, telephony, and file sharing.

By unifying these channels, Circuit is able to offer reduced costs, improved data security, improved efficiency, increased flexibility, and empowered client and partner communications.

1 Reduced overhead

Most businesses have adopted a number of single-purpose apps to facilitate communication, each with a monthly fee per user. Each of these fees is quite small, but four or five apps over even fifty employees is a substantial amount of money per month, which can have a huge impact on a smaller or growing business.

Regardless of the business size, however, reducing costs is always desirable. Bringing together a number of communication streams, Circuit offers substantial savings per employee, charging a single fee for the entire communication suite, instead of a separate fee per service.

2 Improved security

Industry leaders like PRS Telecom are keenly aware that security issues cost UK businesses billions each year, and increasing regulations, including the GDPR, promise fines for improper handling of sensitive data, as well as companies being held responsible for their data, regardless of who is storing it.

Circuit uses AES encryption on all communication, meaning that even if there is a breach, data remains inaccessible to third parties.

Secondly, Circuit eliminates the need for data to be kept or shared on disparate platforms with varying security standards, ensuring that all of your data is maintained at the same high standard.

3 Eliminate wasted time

When employees are required to use a number of different apps, they lose a lot of time to waste and distraction. They are required to flip through multiple apps trying to find the correct piece of information or a particular conversation, and can easily become sidetracked.

Circuit by Unify offers all communications channels on a single stream, with seamless integration between them, giving employees access to all information at their fingertips, while making every conversation and every file searchable in a single app.

4 Empowered employees

Employees are increasingly opting, or occasionally required, to work remotely, but in many cases, they are separated from key resources and communication streams when offsite.

With Circuit by Unify, employees have access to the same resources and communication streams, regardless of their location, even having seamless access to a SIP phone number through Circuit’s Universal Telephony Connector.

5 Connected clients

Connections and communication, with clients as well as partners, is increasingly important, so Circuit has built in features to facilitate better communication.

Most simply, this comes from integration with most CRM facilities, giving employees access to important client data during a video conference without breaking stride.

Further, clients, contractors and partners can be provided with guest accounts, given limited or full access to your team’s Circuit, allowing a higher level of cooperation than before, without any complex requirements.
