Mitel Unified Communications and Collaboration

Whether you’re running a small operation with basic needs, or a larger enterprise requiring a fully hosted, feature-rich contact solution, Unicomm and Mitel have you covered.

What is Unified Communications?

The ways in which businesses communicate is changing. From voice to video, chat bots to instant messaging, the number of methods of communication is increasing. And, with the 2025 ISDN Switch Off fast approaching, businesses will need an internet based solution or risk going silent.

Plus, the challenges that 2020 has brought have proven the benefits of a Unified Communications solution. Not only helping businesses stay agile while staff work from home, but simultaneously reducing costs and optimising customer services too.

Mitel is an industry leader in unified communications (UC) solutions, and the first to reach 5 million hosted seats worldwide. Which is exactly why we offer their entire range of telephony solutions, both cloud-based and on-premise, to our customers.

Plus, choosing Unicomm means having clear expectations and timelines every step of the way to ensure a smooth transition.

MiCloud Flex FAQs

When we speak to our customers about Mitel and MiCloud Flex, certain questions pop up in every conversation. That’s why we’ve created this FAQ; to answer those common questions and alay any fears you may have about making the switch.

Q. If I switch to MiCloud Flex, can I keep my existing phone number?

A. Of course you can! No matter how many lines you currently use, we will make sure each is switched with no downtime.

Not only can we keep your main lines, but we can also ensure other features of your calling solution stay the same too.

  • Extension numbers
  • Hunt groups
  • Auto-attendants

Q. How long will it take to switch over to MiCloud Flex?

A. No time at all. We can make the transition outside of your opening hours to minimise disruption and ensure no calls go unanswered.

Q. How does MiCloud Flex help my team work remotely?

A. It enables your team to work from any location. They’ll be able to answer calls whether they’re at home, in the office or on the go. The user interface is the same on every device too, making it easy for staff to use the app.

Q. How does MiCloud Flex reduce my costs?

A. Not only are lines/trunks and calls cheaper, especially for multi-site businesses, but you won’t have to worry about deskphones anymore. Your team can use their computers, tablets and mobiles for business calls using the same number as before.

Depending on your current system, you may also be able to get rid of expensive on-site equipment like PBXs, which are costly to maintain and upgrade.

Q. Why are Unified Communications platforms, like MiCloud Flex, so important for businesses?

A. Well, we can’t talk for other platforms, but MiCloud Flex improves the way your employees work together. Not only do they allow for business calls to be taken on computers, tablets and personal mobiles, but they include a range of collaboration tools that will help your team be more productive.

Your team know when each other are available preventing missed calls and unnecessary voicemails, but they can use MiCLoud Flex for all their internal and external communications with support for instant messaging, chat bots, email and video conferencing.

What’s more MiCloud Flex improves your resiliency and future-roofs your calling solution. In 2025, the landline network is set to be switched off and all businesses will need to make the change to an internet-based calling solution to stay in touch with customers.

And because your team can answer on any device with an internet connection, even if your office internet access goes down, they can still use their mobiles with no need to divert calls or for employees to use their personal numbers.
