When it comes to running a successful enterprise, nothing is as crucial as your ability to communicate with your employees, your customers, and your partners. And yet, most companies pay little attention to their telecommunications systems unless there is a problem.

In his talk, Jared Smith will talk about telecommunications systems built on open source software, and how they can give you better productivity and agility, all while saving you money. He’ll also highlight Bluehost’s use of open source software to run its contact centers.
