Communications and collaboration technologies have proven to be a boon for enterprises, eradicating barriers of time and place and helping employees, distributors, partners, and stakeholders located at dispersed locations and time zones, to collaborate with each other. As communications and collaboration technologies facilitate real-time communications, they are increasingly used in various aspects of businesses such as product development, sales, strategic decision making, and customer support.
