Total Connect Now managed communications service provides businesses with a flexible set of highly configurable, continually adapting services to overcome and stay ahead of the inherent challenges present in a rapidly changing marketplace.

“I had been in search of, but unable to find, a solution provider who could help us to streamline and automate key operational functions in order to help us create the perfect night out for our guests,” said Michael Frampton, Owner, Sacramento Melting Pot. “I also wanted to alleviate the time management constraints of my restaurant staff, a particularly glaring issue for us when handling reservations during peak busy times and after hours. The programmable nature of Unified Office’s communications service and business analytics allowed us to quickly automate and measure those key functions. In addition, their Visual Performance Suite Manager’s Portal provides the visibility we needed to respond quickly to each reservation request, and to manage and automate promotional messaging, allowing us to create stronger relationships with our customers. The flexibility of their service platform allows us to quickly and easily implement new services as the market continually changes.”

“Unified Office surpassed our expectations for disaster recovery, as well,” Frampton continued. “In the past when we had a path failure our phones would go down because they were connected to our switch.
