Business is no longer tied to the office. Today's business is conducted anywhere and everywhere it needs to be, and workers have necessarily been freed from their desks to do it. Communications have also been freed; no longer limited to a single phone and voice mail, workers now communicate through voice, text message, video chat, and dozens of other emerging technologies.

Unified Communications provides a powerful connection tool, letting people work together from a single user interface, independent of devices, and that encompasses email, instant messaging, voice, video, and application sharing. Unified communications can:
- Help protect your IT system by managing user applications and minimizing security risks;
- Simplify software deployment and management while maximizing IT resources; and
- Capture immediate savings through integration and increased productivity.
With Microsoft Unified Communications, users communicate from within the business applications they know and trust, and your business saves time and money by replacing separate e-mail, phone, voice mail, instant messaging, and audio and video conferencing systems with an integrated, Windows-based platform.
