CallTower Delivers Significant Business Productivity Increases with Unified Communications

In a study conducted by Sage Research, it was estimated that an average business user can save at least 43 minutes per day, and a mobile business user can save up to 55 minutes per day, when utilizing Unified Communications. Companies that combine Unified Communications with presence management, integrated with a leading softswitch such as the Cisco CallManager, achieve even higher productivity and collaboration benefits.
