  2. For years, business phone systems hardly changed since their introduction in the 1950s: an on-location PBX managed multiple phone lines and routed calls. Incremental advances in technical features and add-on services enhanced performance, but communication was really just limited to voice.

    Today, we enjoy countless ways to email, text, buddy, share, video chat, conference—and simply place a call. Along with these technological innovations, business has shifted requiring immediate communication and speed. The benefits are many, however, the complexity is great. How can IT departments keep up with implementing and securing a multitude of applications? Fortunately, we have come up with a better way.

    Omaha Communications builds phone systems with unified communications (UC) built in, not bolted on. This allows us to integrate all key components for robust business communications—voice, email, instant messaging, presence (i.e., being able to check the availability of a co-worker), calendaring, video and audio conferencing and desktop sharing—into one seamless package to make your business run smoothly.
