Eight Reasons to Try Circuit by Unify (Part 2)

Posted by PRS Telecom

Wed 31st, Jan

With business-focused communications apps commonplace these days, it can be difficult to be enthusiastic about trying, or even investigating, a new one.

More and more businesses facilitating remote working, and an increasing need to collaborate in real time across geographically dispersed sites, the platforms you use to communicate have a massive impact.

PRS Telecom is delivering Circuit by Unify to empower you to communicate more efficiently. Here are eight things that Circuit does that make it worth investigating properly.

1. Circuit Enhances Collaboration

Circuit is a unified communications platform, bringing together a huge number of services, including email, chat, video conferencing, telephony, VoIP, and file sharing, into a single application.

You can see who is online, send them a chat message, bring them into a video conference, share your screen, and share the files you are collaborating on, all with a few taps, and without leaving a single app.

2. Built-in AES Security

With data security being more important than ever, you need all of your online communications to be secure.

Circuit guarantees this by providing industry standard AES encryption to all communication, giving you peace of mind that your business-critical information is secure.

3. Never Lose Track of a Conversation

Most businesses currently use multiple single-function apps, meaning communications and files are scattered all over the place, potentially with no audit trail at all.

Since Circuit merges all communication streams within a single app, it means that everything is right there, fully logged, and fully searchable. There’s no need to remember whether the file was sent by instant message, shared, or attached to an email - just search in Circuit.

4. Reduce Wasted Time

With single-function apps, you waste a lot of time just flipping back and forth, trying to find the right window for that particular moment, often ending up sidetracked by something unrelated that you spot in passing.

With Circuit, you don’t need to leave the app to refer back to an email, so there’s no time spent flipping through different screens, no trouble finding the reference, and no time wasted.

5. Stay Productive Anywhere

Through cloud-based multi-platform delivery, Circuit greatly enhances your flexibility, freeing you from the confines of your desk like never before.

Circuit is available as a mobile app, as well as a browser app, meaning you can login from anywhere - your desk, your phone, or even at home - and have access to the same conversations, the same collaboration capabilities, and the same environment.

6. SIP Integration Made Easy

Internet telephony, especially SIP trunking, is enhancing business telephony like nothing else before it, and Circuit takes advantage of this by seamlessly integrating SIP.

Instead of having to ‘cheat’ by forwarding your desk phone or similar, you can use Circuit’s Universal Telephony Connector to make and receive calls through your SIP-provided number from anywhere you login.

7. A Personal Assistant

Circuit has an API and can integrate with Sales force and Remedy for help desk trouble ticketing systems. Also as an FYI RSS feeds can be implemented for example road traffic conditions sent out to you at 5:25 pm daily so you can schedule your route home. It’s bespoke and can be configured and act just like your very own personal assistant.

8. The Price is Right

When you run multiple single-purpose apps, each one carries a separate fee. These may be small individually, but they add up quickly. With UK partner PRS Telecom, Circuit is available for a single fee for the entire suite, which is comparable to the fee for many single-purpose apps.

If that doesn’t convince you, Circuit also offers a free trial package for up to 100 users - making it very tempting indeed.
