  • Cloud Migration Checklist: What’s Right for You Jul 13 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, Principal Consultant, Ensono | Reza Kamran, Senior Director of Product Marketing – Cloud, Mitel
    In 2024, cloud spending is projected to be 14.2% of the total global enterprise IT spending market, compared to the 9.1% it was in 2020 according to Gartner. Supporting a remote workforce means managing large amounts of data across an increasing number of networks. The benefits of a successful cloud migration program are clear, but it’s vital that organisations understand their move to the cloud and can navigate the adoption process on their own terms and at a comfortable pace.

    Organisations that have migrated to cloud benefit from lower costs, economic efficiency and faster deployment. While these benefits are tempting, it can be daunting to decide which cloud model is right for you. When it comes to efficient cloud migration, it’s important to choose the right solution for your business. Choosing a solution that is flexible, reliable and secure are important priorities on your cloud journey.

    Join this webinar to learn:
    - Which Cloud platform is right for you, and which solution is best for your business
    - How outsourcing communications to a trusted advisor can make your migration to cloud painless and stress-free
    - How data-driven insights can help you determine which cloud model is right for your organization
    - How to navigate the next steps on your cloud journey

    As Cloud adoption increases IT modernization, some companies may not yet feel ready to take the jump.

    Shelly Kramer-Partner & Senior Analyst of Futurum Research; Shameem Smillie-Mitel Director of Global Contact Center Solutions
    Join us for a conversation around connection and personalized customer experiences and what meaningful conversations mean in a digital world. Also part of the discussion are some practical ways that businesses can think about strengthening their communication skills, how the BandAid solutions that were initially put in place by many organizations in the early WFH days are now being evaluated (and often replaced), and how customer experience helps in staying attuned to meaningful moments of conversation and the things organizations can do to empower and facilitate them.

    The conversation also covers:
    - Consumer appetite is for faster, more personal interaction and the businesses rising to the top are those that understand that and put good communications first
    - What businesses seem to have struggled with the most as they adapted to a WFH, distributed workforce
    - What kind of adjustments companies are going to need to make as we gradually ease back into a more normal of doing things
    - The tangible ways that businesses can strengthen communication skills
    - What foundational technology is, the must-haves, in order to get communication technology and communications skills where they need to be so as to deliver not only the optimum in customer experience (think contact centers) as well as the optimum in employee experience.

  • Upgrading Business Communications for a Post-Pandemic World Recorded: Apr 13 2021 57 mins
    Sally Eaves – Emergent Technology CTO, Global Strategy Advisor & Jamshid Rezaei – EVP of IT & CIO, Mitel
    Inefficient communication comes with a high cost for modern businesses. Every unseen email or unanswered voicemail represents a waste of time and resources - and when the message involves customer satisfaction, the losses directly affects the bottom line.

    It’s crucial that businesses modernize and consolidate their communication channels. This is especially true in the post-pandemic environment: Remote and hybrid workforces need to communicate and collaborate more effectively, and customers need an excellent experience across channels. The goal is continuity in business communication not bound by location — a seamless conversation across chat, phone, voicemail, email, and more.

    It takes strategic planning to successfully migrate to a new model of business communication — both in terms of budgeting and in adapting the business to make the most of the technology investment.

    This webinar aims to help mid-sized businesses plan and execute a successful communication evolution, considering all we’ve learned during the pandemic, and the latest advances in technology. We’ll feature insight from industry expert Sally Eaves and practical advice from Jamshid Rezaei, EVP of IT & CIO of Mitel, on upgrading your business comms strategy to save time, money and sanity.

    Register now to learn:
    -How to evaluate your communication needs as a business
    -How to strategically plan a migration
    -Best practices for successful implementation and adoption in remote and hybrid workforces
    -How to build continuity throughout your channels of communication
  • Pandemic Learnings. Your 2021 Roadmap for Digital CX and Cloud Adoption Recorded: Mar 4 2021 59 mins
    Jon Arnold – Principal, J Arnold & Associates & Matt Clare – Director of CX Solutions, Mitel
    As technology evolves, the bar for customer experience keeps getting higher and serves as the true business competitive battleground. For contact centers that cannot keep pace with change, new risks arise for the business. Much of this risk comes from the continued use of legacy, premises-based technology, and has been further compounded in 2020 by the impact of COVID-19. Businesses have had to contend with rising call volumes, online shopping and e-commerce, and like never before, the contact center has become the front door of your business.

    The 2020 holiday shopping rush serves as an unprecedented test for adapting to change, not just for providing a good CX, but for overall business continuity. With more of the same in store for 2021, contact center leaders need to understand the importance of digital technology and the cloud to keep pace with CX as well as ensure business continuity under varying conditions and crises.

    During this webinar, we will discuss:
    - Findings from the CX survey
    - Customer experience in pandemic times
    - Roadmap for digital customer experience success in 2021
