Unity Communications increases business sales for AT&T by 20% in the Arizona Market with collaboration of real-time intelligence and appointment setting.
The Obstacle to Overcome:
Wireless sales in Arizona had been declining year after year and losing market share to Verizon.

In a 1 year period, we increased market share in Arizona by 4 percent.

This was a complete team effort and was allowed to start campaigns in 7 more markets.
