Colt Rolls Out Cloud UC to Europe

Colt has announced that its Cloud Unified Communications (UC) service is now available across Europe.

Colt’s Cloud UC offering is a suite of managed, cloud-based, communication and collaboration services. Businesses can benefit from guaranteed high availability and rapid provisioning via a self-service portal, making the service easy to manage and scale in line with business requirements. The pricing model provides the business with cost control and a level of transparency previously unavailable.

Richard Oosterom, EVP Voice Services at Colt, says “For CIOs, a major barrier to UC adoption has been the lack of understanding of the business benefits, making it hard to argue the case for replacing expensive PBX and telephony equipment. The difficulty of then integrating collaboration tools with existing systems, and employing a team with the wide-ranging skills to maintain the services, has delayed the uptake of UC further. Colt’s closely integrated voice and data network services removes those barriers and means that businesses can benefit from the digital transformation potential of UC, while still reducing both capex and opex costs.”

Richard Oosterom concludes: “Driven by internal pressures to keep costs low and respond faster, businesses are moving away from do-it-yourself models and demanding flexible, reliable services from providers who truly understand their business needs. Our Cloud UC service delivers instant cost savings and also provides a guaranteed user experience across Europe with local language, in country expertise where our customers need it. This means that the business can concentrate on providing services to its customers rather than managing IT.”
