Webinar Series: Competing Smarter With Your Business Communication Platform

GlobalMeet guest speaker Ira Weinstein from Recon Research discusses opportunities small to midsize businesses can seize for improving operations, recruitment, customer service, and more using a full-service, unified communications (UC) platform.

“I like to think of UC differently. I like to think that UC is more of a mindset, not a solution. It’s a way of working. It’s an attitude. It’s an idea that making our people available, accessible, and productive is how we can be successful.” - Ira Weinstein
