It's Time for
Public Sector to Migrate Legacy Voice Systems to the Cloud

Connect Government with the Power of Digital

Is your organization still using separate applications and services for voice calls, instant messaging, video conferencing, screen-sharing and other essential functions? If so, it’s time to take a close look at CenturyLink®  Government Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS). 

Why bring together your organization’s voice, video, voicemail, instant messaging, presence, conferencing and web collaboration on a single platform? With easier deployment, secure interoperability, predictability and manageable costs, why wouldn’t you? With CenturyLink Government UCaaS, your agency can accelerate to cloud applications in no time – all while maintaining standards-based practices and infrastructure compliance. 

Fast Fact:

Nearly 7 out of 10 public sector organizations say unified communications is an important priority.

Overall Better Manageability of your Allocated Budget Dollars

By migrating to a managed cloud-based PBX, you do not lose control of your phone system. Rather, you optimize redundancy and increase scalability without a new capital investment. With CenturyLink Government UCaaS, you can easily grow or shrink your number of seats as the size of your organization changes. 

Your dollars can be stretched further in an OPEX model. Consider these examples:

  • Transparent costs.
  • Easier to realize your ROI.
  • Costs become easier to anticipate.
  • Predictable budget.
  • Reduced sourcing.
Less equipment reduces operating costs and maintenance fees.

Increase Productivity by Staying Connected

Cut the cord to save time.

Traditional phone systems are designed around specific devices. With cloud applications, however, you are able to easily and effectively communicate regardless of the hardware. Your desk phone would still be compatible even within the cloud environment. 

Your number will follow you throughout your day. Work mobile or wherever you want. Use a PC, laptop, tablet, cell phone or office phone. Android or iOS, the choice is yours.

Here are a few of the many features you’ll enjoy:

multi-device

Multi-Device Ringing

It’s easy for calls to follow you. Simply choose to have one or more of the devices you use ring at once or in sequence. Fewer calls are missed and important work keeps moving.

Messaging

Presence / Instant Messaging

CenturyLink® Cloud services display your status so others can see whether you are available, busy, in a meeting, mobile or offline. Custom fields let you write your own personal status updates and set your location as well.
