UC&C recognise the importance of reliable and seamless communication. Unified Communication services make this easy, by offering higher education providers the ability to access the latest communication technology while saving money on infrastructure and running costs.
From managing finance and administration, online marketing campaigns, advertising courses through to the contact centres who manage admission enquiries…institutions rely on modern technology to function.
Unified Communication (UC) offers higher education institutions a single unified service that simplifies communication under one user-friendly service.
