Unified Communications (UC) is an integrated approach to enhancing end-user communications and accelerating key business processes. Enterprises embarking on initial or follow-on UC implementations should leverage the Unified Communications Financial Calculator to detail the costs and benefits of the proposed implementation with a focus on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and Return on Investment (ROI).
By capturing cost and benefit details for a proposed UC implementation from the organization’s UC strategy development effort, the tool generates:
- The annualized TCO.
- The annualized ROI.
Use this tool to determine if the proposed UC implementation makes financial sense, and if so, use the results in conjunction with the Unified Communications Optimization Business Proposal template to accelerate the project approval process.
