Business leaders have widely accepted that remote working is no longer viewed as a temporary solution. Now, companies large and small are reevaluating their workplace operations and opting for more flexibility.
Organizations are able to cut down on office expenses as they downsize their real estate footprint, but some plan on keeping some form of physical office for meetings, collaboration and to nurture workplace culture.
The future of work is here to stay, and to accommodate this, companies need to adjust their digital capabilities that make it easier for employees to work outside of the office.
This means incorporating technology, such as the cloud, that makes it easy to provide remote access to company data wherever they are working from. Doing so also helps cut down on the costs since companies are reducing their bandwidth usage in the office.
Connectivity will be one of the most essential tools of the modern workforce, particularly during this transition to flexibility. While IT teams may struggle to troubleshoot connection issues for those working at home, the costs saved in other areas of the company could be used towards providing employees with business grade internet connection.
The mass adoption of video conferencing tools has also been essential over the last several months, but with more staff moving off-site, companies may face issues with identifying the best phones for these remote workers.
That’s where VoIP technology comes in, as these companies typically provide a softphone offering. Softphones are a phone client application that runs on a computer or smartphone, and offers the same capabilities as a traditional desk phone.
