The company that I work for would like to take advantage of these capabilities, the problem is that we don't have the budget or staff to host our own Unified Communications Server. We have exhausted multiple angles of approach on this problem, and have found no acceptable solutions.
I find it hard to believe that no one offers Unified Communications hosting as a monthly service, like so many companies do for MS Exchange hosting. Is there a technological, financial, or feasibility issue with offering this as a service that anyone is aware of?
So have you worked with Unified Communications in a small business setting? How did your company deal with implementation?"
