How VoIP is helping businesses during lockdown
Working from home has been a growing trend in recent years, but social distancing has meant that it has become the new norm for businesses, seemingly overnight.
Whilst some companies are struggling to adapt, those already making use of cloud-based technologies have found themselves much more able to cope with the change. VoIP phone systems in particular have proved indispensable for companies looking to keep up both appearances and productivity.
Not restricted to one location
Unlike traditional landlines, VoIP phone handsets are not tied to a particular location. This means that as long as you have a working internet connection, you can remove your handset from your office and plug in into your home router – it’s as easy as that!
No need to worry about rerouting calls
With a static landline, you will have to go through the stress and hassle of distributing alternative contact numbers whilst nobody is in the office and rerouting the calls going to your usual office number. With a VoIP phone system, number of this is an issue. Your business can keep its number and be contacted by customers and clients the exact same way as before, resulting in less inconvenience and missing leads.
Host conference calls
VoIP phone systems support conference calls of up to 20 people, which means that employees can easily engage in group meetings and conference calls from the sanctum of their home. This isn’t just useful for remote working, it’s great for connecting teams from multiple premises too.
