The current situation has found many, if not all, employees confined to working from home.
Although previously many businesses have been reluctant to support their employees working from home and have reservations surrounding lapses in communication and productivity in general, the reality suggests that there are in fact many benefits.
Home based workers are more productive, more motivated and are generally happier in their work. Allowing employees to work from home reduces costs, overheads and can even improve levels of employee retention.
“People who work remotely at least once a month are 24% more likely to be happy and productive.”
However, in order to reap the benefits of remote working, it is imperative for your business to consider its options and how you can best leverage the available technologies needed to implement this effectively.
Your telecoms system is one of the key technologies that your business depends upon and its infrastructure must be able to cope with your employees working from home – whether that’s 10, 1,000 or 10,000 employees. If your ability to support them is restricted by an outdated or traditional system, then now is the time to upgrade to a Cloud based telephone system.
Updating to a Cloud system is essential to remaining operational, ensuring your businesses ability to stay connected to employees, and to continue to support and service your clients efficiently. With a Cloud based telephone system you get total flexibility, providing the ability to quickly scale up or down in a simple plug and play manner as your business requires.
