Both consumer and commercial technology solutions are always changing and improving. With remote working opportunities on the rise, it’s only natural for more companies to reconsider their IT and telecommunication options. We can expect to see a few key trends continue. The organizations that know how to adapt and move quickly are likely to be more competitive in the long-run. It’s only a matter of getting the right systems in place to help your team perform at their best!
Connecting Teams During Remote Work
The office landscape has experienced significant shifts over the past year. Now that more people have become used to—and sometimes even prefer—working remotely, company leaders need to find permanent setups to keep their operations running as smoothly as when their employees were on-site. The building’s infrastructure may have been functioning perfectly well for their usage in the past. Yet new solutions are needed to keep teams connected while everyone is spread out and working in their own location.
In one sense, these updates may raise the question of whether your address itself should change. Your physical location’s square footage might be bigger now than what you needed in the past. Fewer people coming into the office gives companies unique opportunities to save on their overhead. Of course, moving to a new location might require some telecommunications retrofitting. But that’s just a simple case of running the numbers.
More likely, your scenario going forward will require some strategic investments into your team members’ new at-home or other remote setups. They’ll need permanent solutions for maintaining the same productivity they’ve had in your office space. And that comes down to some specific telecommunications systems.
VoIP Access and SIP Trunking Upgrades
One of the easiest ways to enhance your new style of working is to utilize your laptop in a way that’s as streamlined as your office phones. These types of softphone options give you the flexibility to work from anywhere, as long as you have a reliable internet connection.
A more robust system will allow you to integrate all types of business functions that you were already comfortable using at your office desk. Part of this relates to the type of business phone system you’ve already adopted. Then you’ll need to add a Cloud PBX solution, if you don’t have one already. Working with the Cloud happens through your company’s VoIP setup. Additionally, it’s important to monitor your business SIP trunking system. That’s how VoIP will be able to work for all types of calls back onsite. When everything works together, you shouldn’t have to worry about a thing.
