PHOENIX, AZ – October 23, 2017 – BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) a global market share leader in cloud business software for unified communication as a service (UCaaS), and provider of collaboration and contact center as a service (CCaaS), today unveiled several enhancements to its BroadSoft Business portfolio at its annual user conference, BroadSoft Connections. Now leveraging a microservices architecture, BroadSoft Business offers updated app experiences and next-generation capabilities across the BroadSoft Business applications, UC-One, Team-One and CC-One.
Business users today are overwhelmed with managing their workflows through multiple communication channels - from email to texting to OTT applications - and often waste time and energy searching for information. In fact, research from The Economist notes that employees who believe their workplace effectively uses mobile technology solutions are more creative, satisfied and productive at work. Meanwhile, businesses are increasingly aware of how inefficient and redundant workflows affect their bottom line.
“Our objective with BroadSoft Business is to provide a comprehensive offering - from telephony to high-quality meetings to document sharing - to meet the needs of all market segments,” said Michael Tessler, president and chief executive officer, BroadSoft. “While other companies are just now talking about how to integrate UC with team collaboration platforms, the BroadSoft Business application suite is already delivering on our promise of complete business productivity.”
