This infographic was created by Unify Square and represents data gathered by Nemertes Research about the Secret to Reduced UC Costs

Unified Communications Cost Savings

The Nemertes research says that using specialty tools lets you reduce your implementation costs by 65% and your operational costs by 43%. This also leads to such benefits as better UC performance, increased productivity and improved customer experience.

Nemertes Says that Common Tool Purchasing Road Blocks Include:

    • The need to cut the overall project cost. And the lack of time to evaluate it.
    • We lack expertise with no time to train for new tools.
    • Companies believe that there are too many management tools already, and there is no need to get more.

In response, Nemertes argues the Counter Arguments:

Time

    • It’s easier to get the budget wrapped in with the overall project. Moreover, tools will save time later.

Expertise

    • User-friendly tools dwarf training time in comparison to time spent in the first outage finding a root cause.

Budget

    • The research says that this is a quickly recoverable cost. Consider cutting from professional services, because administration tools will cut installation costs.

Overlap

    • Specialty Unified Communications tools are unmatched in benefits when compared to other generic management tools.

Nemertes Research Found that  Less than Half of Companies that Use Management Tools Buy at the Right Time

The Chart Shows How Management Tools Can Reduce UC Costs:

The left part of the chart describes performance management costs. It shows that operational costs without using management tools reach $252 per endpoint, while the same costs go down to $104 per endpoint when a company starts using management tools. Implementation costs without using management tools are also higher than the costs incurred while using these tools. The difference is $25 per endpoint.

The right part of the chart illustrates administrative management costs. The bar chart shows that implementation costs without using management tools are higher than costs by using management tools. Operational costs without using management tools are more than 2 times higher than the costs incurred while using management tools.

In summary, the usage of management tools leads to significant cost savings. Moreover, management tools increase productivity and improve customer experience, which makes your business more successful.
