BT's collaboration portfolio allows customers to gradually move their communications infrastructure from the typically complex combination of ageing analogue and digital technologies to a single unified platform where the latest IP technology transforms the experience. This can be done at a pace selected by the customer, and allows end-users to collaborate from and to any mobile or desktop device, through wi-fi, cellular or fixed line network services, regardless of whether the device is corporate or managed under Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies.
With the help of the BT Advise teams of professional services consultants, customers can take advantage of BT's wealth of experience in how to further improve end user experience in an efficient and cost effective way. They will be able to integrate new services with their existing infrastructure without having to rip and replace, allowing them to make the most of existing investments and avoid disruption to their organisations.
At BT, we're not only revolutionising voice, we are bringing together the best possible quality of video, instant messaging, web conferencing and streaming. We allow people to collaborate in a way that speeds up decision making and helps global organisations reduce travel costs and carbon footprint. The industry will now compete on this new ground and I am proud that these announcements show BT spearheading that transformation. Better conversations are the key to creating a better future.'
