IBM Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC²) solutions do more than just unify communications channels; we add the power of collaboration, so your users can easily find, reach and collaborate with each other. Save money. Speed business. Work smarter.

IBM Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC²) solutions make it easier for people to find, reach and collaborate with one another through a unified communications experience—right from their familiar devices, applications, and processes. So people are only one or two clicks away from collaboration.

Integrating communications and collaboration in a rich, multimedia experience—one that can include rich presence information, unified telephony, voice, video, instant messaging, Web conferencing, e-mail, voice mail, and business processes and applications—enables a whole new way for people, teams and communities to find experts and make faster, better decisions.

The IBM UC² strategy is to deliver—in partnership with the leading telephony, audio, and video vendors—a complete software, services and hardware solution for your unified communications and collaboration needs. IBM Lotus® Sametime® software IS the IBM UC² platform that delivers a simple, unified user experience that your employees, customers and extended networks will want to use every day as their key collaborative environment.

IBM UC² solutions—combined with services from IBM Global Technology Services or IBM Business Partners, whether delivered on-premise, in an appliance, or through the Cloud—leverage an open ecosystem and open standards based software to seamlessly integrate with multivendor environments.  Extends your IT and telephony investments. Makes users more productive.  Speeds business processes. Reduces overall costs. In short, helps you collaborate smarter and work smarter.
