30 Oct How VoIP Is Helping Businesses Evolve & Prosper Through the Pandemic
The pandemic has continued to create obstacles for many businesses. One of the greatest challenges is handling a mix of remote and onsite working for staff.
Thanks to repeated local lockdowns and some workers being in vulnerable categories, companies have had to become highly adaptive.
When you have employees working in different environments and varying levels of access to equipment and internet, the situation can get complex and have an unwanted impact on productivity. Examples include internet stability at home, out of date home computers, and less access to office systems.
However, it doesn’t have to be this difficult. Through improved technology, businesses can give staff everything they need to work on projects together, communicate in real time and support customers.
VoIP is a simple solution that offers great opportunities, including increased productivity and connectivity between onsite and remote workers.
What is VoIP?
VoIP simply means Voice Over Internet Protocol, and its simplest iteration is phone calls over the internet without the use of a landline. Skype and Zoom are VoIP systems, but advanced business VoIP systems go above and beyond the functionality of simple video call software.
How Can Business VoIP Systems Help Remote Workers?
Not all VoIP systems are created equal, yet some of the best business VoIP systems like 3cx offer a range of features to help improve remote and onsite working and communication:
- Cheaper calls between clients, offsite teams, and remote staff
- Simple app-free web conferencing
- Live chat to customers
- Mobile app integration
- Cloud hosted systems
- Secure PBX (private branch exchange)
- On-premise installation
VoIP isn’t only useful for remote workers; savvy firms have been using VoIP to improve their telecommunications onsite for years. It vastly reduces costs, improves conferencing and the sharing of information across large sites and with clients.
One of the biggest benefits of business VoIP options like 3cx is the ability of the web and mobile apps to facilitate all workers still using their office phone numbers, even when they are at home. That consistency of service is, therefore, maintained for all your clients and customers. It cuts out confusion and delays in communication and keeps operations running smoothly.
