A major athletic event like the Pan Am Games tends to bring everyone together — the teams, the fans, the staff working behind the scenes — but it takes more than good intentions to do so.

Besides offering a huge opportunity to demonstrate Toronto’s position as a truly world-class city, 2015 the Pan Am Games will also provide a showcase for the power of unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS). As Allstream recently announced, the company’s Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) will be deployed across venues as part of its role as official managed IP communications supplier.

UCaaS is already projected to grow from $13.10 billion in 2014 to $23.34billion in 2019 with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.2% according to a recent report. However the Pan Am Games in 2015 will offer a much broader perspective on how this technology could transform organizations of all kinds. Just imagine the ideas in the video below in a Pan Am Games context. In a sense, long before the Games get under way, you could already say UCaaS is a winner.
