Although not a new concept, communications management including call reporting, is an important component to every business yet lots of people haven’t explored it fully and are missing out on benefits of this great business tool.

Historically, communications management was used to verify a phone bill at the end of the month or allocate call costs across departments. Whilst these uses are valuable, there are lots of ways that the software can help other business functions, automatically, and daily.

Telephone, Internet and email are the most highly used forms of communications in business and so it makes sense to have an application to better understand just how these tools are being used and how if any they can be improved.

Over the years Communications management software has progressed from basic hardware-based telephone logging systems to today’s web-based software solutions that not only can provide managers with detailed statistics on historical call data but also now look at what is happening in real time to help you make faster decisions with the facts in front of you.

With the arrival of IP telephony and telephone systems being commissioned onto your ever growing networks, call management software can now communicate directly with your phone switch over your LAN, meaning it can be set up easily to any PC in no time at all and opened up to many users within your organisation quickly.

The future of communications management lies in its ability, both through software development and services, to help users understand the information it delivers and propose recommendations for change.

It’s been said that you can’t manage what you can’t monitor as your telephone system provides such a vital interface between you and your clients whilst affecting many aspects of your customer service levels.

Which is why it is a crucial tool for any business looking to improve the way in which you as an organisation communicate using the telephone.

Communications management can deliver significant business benefits, regardless of business size or industry sector and when executed effectively, communications management minimises any chances for miscommunication.
