With a few quick searches, you can get some idea of the typical pricing of a cloud phone system. Determining the pricing of a Unified Communications system is a little more difficult. The price isn't the true total cost either. If you’re trying to gain a better understanding of the cost of Unified Communications, you might be struggling with where to even start. There’s so many providers, so many offers, and sometimes it is difficult to just ascertain  a fair price.  Framework has consulted companies on Unified Communications for over a decade. We’ve worked with many providers in that time and gained an excellent understanding of the market. We'll help you understand the various costs, and the cost expectations based on your needs.
