Empowering Customers and dramatically reducing operational costs

With Azzurri’s comUnity® platform our customers gain total control of their communication estate and significantly reduce their overall communications spend. We specialise in providing value to companies with lean IT resources which enables IT within these organisations to focus on doing what they do best – driving strategic business benefit.

With a myriad of challenges facing most mid-sized organisations today there are key areas of operations where top-level managed service providers can add real value. These pressures include:

  1. Pressure on IT to drive greater value in the business
  2. Limited IT resources are focused on the day-to-day which constrains strategic planning
  3. Increasing popularity of cloud services
  4. Proliferation of social media increasing security issues

Many companies are spending a large amount of time focused on fire fighting issues at the data network layer, or making sure communication tools are fit for purpose with very little time thinking strategically and working on best-practise methodology. Azzurri commonly observes IT departments spending 60-70% of their time working on the network and infrastructure, approximately 30% on the communications tools and only 10% on the people, processes and policies. However companies should be trying to reverse this trend primarily focusing on people, processes and policy, followed by communications and collaboration tools.
