Unified Communications

Facilitating effective workplace collaboration in Northeast Ohio and beyond.

DCT's Unified Communications (UC) suite helps improve employee productivity in the office and on the road by fully integrating voice, video, instant messaging & presence (IM&P), desktop sharing, and audio/web conferencing.  Critical communications features are delivered in familiar applications such as Microsoft Outlook and Lync, Google Apps, and Salesforce.com -- ensuring user adoption -- and a consistent experience across desktop, tablet and mobile operating systems.

Why Unified Communications?

A fully integrated UC solution from DCT provides productivity enhancements and supports multi-platform access and control.  Unlike other solutions, there's no need to rip and replace your current environment -- we easily integrate with your business where your associates already live and work.  DCT delivers the features your organization needs from the cloud, enabling you to reach colleagues quicker, via methods they prefer, so you get the instantaneous responses you need.

Benefits of DCT's UC Solution

Unified Communications Features

Audio & Web Conferencing

On-demand audio and web conferencing solutions complement the DCT Hosted PBX phone system with real-time collaboration capabilities.  Support just a few participants with simple reservation-less conferencing, or enable enterprise-class scheduled conferencing with hundreds of participants.  Great for product demos, webinars, or sharing work more closely with remote team members and clients.


Work in the email platform of your choice, integrated with your DCT Hosted PBX phone system and Unified Messaging.  Whether you are using Microsoft Exchange and Outlook or Gmail, DCT will integrate your email with your other applications for a complete UC experience.  You will benefit from Unified Messaging for just one inbox as the repository for all messages (email, voicemail and fax); click-to-dial from your email application; phone presence information displayed; and more.

Video Calling

Enjoy easy, face-to-face interactions with colleagues in any location via video-enabled HD voice desk phone, Windows or Mac soft clients, video conference room integration, video bridging service, or mobile phones and tablets.

Instant Messaging & Presence (IM&P)

With integrated phone status and calendar, our business class Instant Messaging & Presence (IM&P) enables users to exchange information and see colleagues' availability in real time.  Includes multi-party chats and file sharing, with the security and logging required for adherence to corporate policies.


Whereas proprietary voice offerings have made integration and innovation challenging or impossible, DCT's applications and our open API architecture allow easy integration with your CRM, email and other applications important to your business.

Mobile Apps

Extend business services to your end users' smartphones or tablets.  Users can make and receive business calls -- including video calls -- via iOS and Android mobile devices using their business phone number.  IM&P, feature control and call settings (find me, follow me, forwarding, etc.), corporate directory, call history and chat history are all accessible.

Desktop Sharing

Collaborate with your colleagues regardless of location by sharing your screen via your preferred browser.  Your desktop can be shared with internal colleagues or users outside your organization, and with multiple users at one time.  You can also share files with the click of a mouse and maintain video calling and chat during desktop share.

Desk Phones & Soft Phones

HD Voice desk phones or soft phones with audio and video capability allow users to place calls anytime, anywhere.  One number reaches you wherever you are, on any device, and you can start a call on your desk phone and seamlessly move the call to your mobile device.  You can also quickly place or transfer calls through click-to-dial capabilities.
