We speak with Dominic Kent, Director of Content Marketing & Communications at Mio, about the past, present, and future of unified communications. 

 

As a remote worker before it was cool, Dominic shares his take on the onslaught of work-from-home advice, saying, “I don’t think there’s a right way or wrong way to work remotely.” 

 

We discuss the evolution of workplace chat and collaboration tools (including Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, Slack, Cisco Webex Teams, and more) and how they’ve changed our workflows. Dominic shares his thoughts on escaping tool overload and communicating more efficiently. 

 

We also uncover the methodology behind a unified comms influencers chart Dominic created for Mio.

 

Finally, Dominic proposes a month-long email challenge for reducing inbox clutter.
