“Unified Communications (UC) Strategies strives to be the industry’s preeminent UC resource for enterprises, vendors and system integrators. Until recently, the missing link for us in this UC industry structure was consultants and the important role they play with the other constituencies. We have successfully partnered with The Brookside Group to reach out to and include the right consultants in the UC resources we offer the industry.”  Jim Burton, CEO, CT Link and CoFounder, UC
