Having a good social communications strategy in place can help you boost business productivity and promote innovation.

Social communications is the evolution of unified communications that provides integrated voice, data and video across social networks.  We can help you integrate with applications your employees use every day for easy access to enterprise instant messaging, online meetings, telephony, video conferencing and more—wherever they are working.

Our team of IT IBM social communications specialists can support you in achieving an immediate and cost-effective way to help improve customer engagement and to make faster, expertise-based decisions with people inside and outside your business, helping your team to work more efficiently and cut your travel costs overhead.

Many of the components of a social communications strategy such as:

– Instant messaging

- Web conferencing

- Real-time collaboration

- Mobile device support

- Telephony integration

But open architectures and programming models are enabling organizations to pull these different pieces together in new ways.

An instant messaging application, your telephone, or your email, for example, pulls all your social networking tools into a single environment. The result is a social communications environment that’s easier for IT staff to configure, administer, maintain and ease of use.


Drive down the costs associated with disparate communication and collaborate solutions. Drive up productivity and performance, and leverage enhanced collaborations to foster a more innovative workplace.
