Unified Communications as a Service

Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) software delivers communication services on a single unified platform over the cloud. Software features include email, video conferencing, chat/instant messaging, collaboration, and file sharing. Sometimes referred to as Unified Communications (UC) or Unified Communications & Collaboration (UC&C).

The Data Quadrant is a thorough evaluation and ranking of all software in an individual category to compare platforms across multiple dimensions.

These include:

  • User Satisfaction Rankings
  • Business Value Scores
  • Vendor Capability Comparisons
  • Product Feature Evaluations

The Emotional Footprint is a powerful indicator of overall user sentiment toward the relationship with the vendor, capturing data across five dimensions.

These include:

  • Strategy and Innovation
  • Service Experience
  • Conflict Resolution
