LONDON, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
- Unified Communications Expo Opens Today With Two Seminar Streams Dedicated to Remote Working and First-see Product Demonstrations in the UK
Unified Communications Expo 2011 http://www.ucexpo.co.uk - the UK's leading business communication event bringing together the key technologies and key people of this rapidly evolving world - opens its door today at 9.30am at Olympia. On the same day, new research indicates that remote working is still a controversial topic in the UK.
Research among delegates who pre-registered to attend illustrates that there's still a difference of opinion when it comes to remote working in the UK. Almost exactly half of those surveyed claimed that people are accepting of remote working and that home working can be just as productive, indicating that attitudes here are almost perfectly split down the middle. There is however a marked difference between the technology- and business-focused attendees with 61% of the technology audience against just 45% of the business audience agreeing that it's acceptable.
In addition, 79% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that smartphones are now essential to their business, implying that, even if attitudes towards home working are divided, attitudes towards mobile integration are not. Unified Communications Expo will continue this debate with two seminars streams dedicated to the topic, featuring the leading companies in this space including BlackBerry, Vodafone, Microsoft and Mitel on hand to answer delegate questions.
