Workplace Advisory Services

Plan your strategy to move to Cloud UC, identify and address risks

Moving your communications to the cloud is complex. It comes with many technical as well as cultural and people challenges. Our Advanced Services Team helps you to understand these challenges, uncover unknown risks and develop an actionable plan for your transition to an enterprise grade operational UC environment, including voice.

We help you to choose the right technology and work out a detailed plan for the actual transition. No matter if you’re looking for a quick deployment or a phased approach, need to move your 10 year old PBX to the cloud, or need customizations to integrate legacy technology - we help you map out the best path to deploy Cloud UC in your business.

Our team identifies potential risks and how to mitigate them on both the technical and people side. Because deploying Cloud UC is more than just a technical change. It entails a whole new way of working requiring cultural change within your organization. This change needs just as much planning as the technical migration. Because only if your employees use the new technology will your business transformation be a success.

Cloud Deployment Framework

Navigate the complexities of cloud migration and plan for a successful technology and people transformation.

Our Cloud Deployment Framework is a consultancy led methodology to provide organizations with critical time saving and risk adverse guidance for transitioning to Cloud UC, with voice.

From an audit of your existing infrastructure to building user personas and site profiles, we look at every aspect of your current environment before developing a plan for your migration to the cloud. By assessing and mitigating risks in advance, we ensure you migrate on time as well as on budget. We take the time to understand your business objectives and ensure they are achieved.

But we go further than the technical migration alone. Your users and potential resistance from them, change management and a governance framework are just as important and are fully catered for from the start of the project. Because moving to the cloud is about more than deploying a new technology. It’s about deploying a new way of working.
