HP has expanded its Unified Communications
& Collaboration(UC&C) services portfolio with offerings that help clients simplify and integrate business communications to lower costs and accelerate growth.

New HP UC&C consulting services take a comprehensive approach to transforming enterprise communications from strategy through implementation, and across people, process and technology. HP helps clients plan strategically, targeting a company’s long-term vision while implementing short-term steps to ensure end-user adoption and maximum program success.

Underwriters Laboratories, product safety testing and certification organization, is working with HP on a two-year project to standardize processes and technologies. This transformation will allow them to speed knowledge sharing and collaboration between workers and clients. With a UL Virtual Workplace console on every desktop, connected through the company’s new UC&C infrastructure, employees can collaborate with clients around the world without being constrained by medium, location or device.

HP UC&C Business Value Services and HP UC&C Education Services help clients transform the workplace into a unified, connected and collaborative environment that lowers operating costs and drives business growth. The new services include

HP UC&C Transformation Workshop : Experiential workshop that helps client stakeholders look at all business, financial, technical and company-specific implications and opportunities around UC&C to gain consensus then build a strategy to support business objectives.

HP UC&C Business Value Assessment : Takes clients through building a cost-analysis model for a UC&C solution investment to understand the business value and cost reductions that could be gained.

HP UC&C Business Benefits Workshop : Helps clients build a business case for a UC&C solution to ensure it will deliver on expected benefits.

HP also has signed global agreements with Polycom and Network Equipment Technologies to offer clients broad choice in UC&C technology options.
