Millienials, people born after 1980 (very similar to Gen Y.’s 1978)They are leaving uni’s and getting jobs (around 50% of the working population will be Millenials by the end of 2014)They believe getting a job is a right, with the vast majority thinking getting gainful employment will take less than 6 months.They feel empowered and expect to be given jobs that matter, if they do not get what they want from a job they will leave within a year. Even if they achieve their job goals, they expect to move jobs every 2 years.
They have a need to be connected with 75% having at least one social profile.And they have a strong sense of identity and want to share that with 1 in 5 posting video of themselves on the internet2 in 5 having tattoos and 1 in 4 having piercings in places other than the ears.
They believe in mobility, expecting to be connected everywhere, with 70% owning laptops and only 57% owning desktops.
Over half of them already have a smartphone (iPhone or Android)Of those 46% that don’t 18% of them will have one in the next 6 months.
94% use their phones to send text messages (not too sure what the other 6% are doing)63% connect to the internet (this is expected to increase as smartphone adoption increase and internet costs decrease)83% sleep with their phone next to their bed, showing a reliance on their phone (for things like an alarms clock) and an need to be always connected.
77% feel that technology makes their working life better. Considering that many jobs are not desk bound, technology is seeping into all forms of jobs, desk bound, mobile, on the road etc.
73% feel that technology makes it easier to communicate with peers and supervisors, probably spurred on by email and IM but there will be some amount of social media in this
IM usage for work is still low at 46% but millenials are far more accepting than their older workmates at 22%
This stat should concern most organisations, Millienals admit to using on-line (potentially non secure) methods of communication.An organisation should try and provide everything their staff requires to make sure it is audited and controlled. Stay ahead of the users.
Over half have admitted bring their own personal equipment or software to work because their company would not provide it. This should be embraced and leveraged wherever possible.
Sums it all up in one slide.
It is a full featured IP-PBXon a disk, delivering IM, Presence, Videoand Web based conferencing, Integrated into your corporate IT infrastructure allowing staff to work anywhere, any time on any device.Point out the text in the image.Any SIP device can be used.It is shipped to the customer on a DVD (if they want – or preferably a server)It supports all forms of communications, IM, Presence, Video, Collab.On a physicall or virtual server – they choose, they can even mix and matchIt can be used anywhere there is network connectivity on a wide range of devices (Windowxs, Mac, iOs, Android)
Why 3c?ExecutivesDon’t let other companies out sell you by having better toolsMake your staff more productive (leverage their down time) Lower your costs (reduction in travel, comms costs, staffing requirements)Create an environment where staff want to workIT staffLook after your customers (your departments and end users)Ensure you are always secureSupport the future of bring-your-own-deviceEnd userEnsure that when a customer calls, you know the phone sitting next wo you will ring, be that a physical phone, softphone, mobile phone - whatever.Communication should not get in the way of sharing content and data. Have the tools at your fingertips to collaborate with anyone anywhere.
This is the most important point – it is what makes 3C different.It starts with the person, a single identity – the same one the organisation is comfortable with – your domain credentials.Against that person we can tie multiple devices (desk phones, video phones, soft phones)We then track that persons activity to represent their state – not just of them but of every device they own.We then layer on top of that their preferences, like how to handle their calls, which devices should ring, who they like to communicate with.
Presence is an amazing tool and it is even better when it is a summary of everything the person is doing.Are they at their desk – using their PC (any PC that they are currently logged in to and running the UC client – even mobile)Are they on a phone call – on any of their devicesAre they in a meeting – from exchange calendar. All of these status’ are rolled up and presented to anyone that wants to know where you are and how to contact you.
Users only need a single number even if they have multiple devices.Brad has a single published number +61 3 9262 1001 (or extension 1001)When he is called – all his device ring, he even gets a screen pop on all of the computers he is logged in on (and android phones)He can answer on any device he likes.3C is no longer a one call per line phone system like solutions of old, Brad can receive as many calls as an administrator allows (default is 4) on his line, his phones all ring, and he can choose which calls to answer, which to reject. Or even have multiple calls at the same time!
Because everything is related to the user, Brad only needs one set of call forward rules. This same set applies to EVERY phone.He can call forward his phone based on Number of seconds it has been ringingThe time of the dayThe callers caller IDHi presence stateAnd when a call forward is followed, it can also continue to ring on his desk phones.So as an example, Brad only ever tells people his desk phone number.When a customer calls, all his desk phones ring, he also call forwards his phone to his mobile, so his mobile will ALSO ring.Brad can then answer the call on anyone of his devices.
The Benefits of 3C – Intelligent call handlingWhat device rings when Efficiency goes up because users will always be able to answer the phone.Costs go down as users don’t need to return calls or wast time checking voicemails or playing phone tagThis eases the hassle of communication for the userAdvanced call forwardsBy having your phone adapt to your current situation (presence state, time of day, caller ID) you can control you calls more efficiently.It allows you to reduce call costs by staff not always reverting to calling other staff on their mobilesAnd employees will be happier getting the info they want when they need it.Single numberNothing is more annoying than wanting to call someone and it goes to voicemail, Single number reach will ensure when customers call they phone call will get answered more often as every device rings.Staff efficiency goes up as they are no longer playing voicemail tag and checking voicemails.
