Nuso delivers Cloud Communication for Remote Operations
During the COVID-19 pandemic, communication between a company and its customers, vendors, and team members becomes quite difficult. Staying connected, however, is crucial for companies wanting to minimize the damage of the COVID-19 pandemic on their businesses. Today’s telecom technologies, such as video calls, IP telephony, or chats, provide means of COVID-safe communication but are often not established at a necessary level in all companies. Most available solutions are covering only a part of communication tasks, thus not providing centralized means of management.
