free-whitepaper-downloadAvotus Corporation, the leading provider of Intelligent Communications Management (ICM) solutions, announces today it has released a white paper titled, “The Price of Productivity – Mitigating the Risks of Unified Communications (UC) Deployments.” The white paper, which is available for free download now, details the “costs” of deploying a UC strategy without proper UC asset monitoring and reporting, including Instant Messaging, Mobility, VOIP, Service Directory, Audio and Video Conferencing and Presence.

“The ability to monitor UC assets is absolutely integral to a successful UC deployment,” explains James Martino, CEO, Avotus. “This white paper lays out why this is so important and explains how to go about incorporating an effective UC strategy into a company’s daily operations. Furthermore, the paper explains the risks involved in letting abuse and misuse of a UC component go unchecked. This white paper provides the necessary tools a company needs to protect itself from a variety of pitfalls.”

Enterprises are incorporating UC at a rapid pace due to its low-cost value proposition and expected increase in productivity. The risks of implementing a UC solution aren’t always obvious and go beyond a simple errant text or instant message (IM), including:

  • Legal Liability
  • Security Breaches
  • Regulatory Non-Compliance
  • Loss of Intellectual Property
  • Loss of Productivity – Misuse of Corporate Assets

The white paper from Avotus explains that a successful UC deployment involves ongoing and seamless unified-communicationsmonitoring and reporting on UC asset usage.

“Critical to a successful long-term UC strategy is comprehensive visibility and actionable insights regarding misuse, abuse and intellectual property sharing,” the paper states. “An Enhanced Usage Reporting platform can mitigate the risks associated with a UC deployment and allow the firm to reap the productivity gains from UC with confidence.”
