Successful Teleworking starts with the right communications solutions
Thanks to broadband Internet and the cloud, teleworking from home or the road is easier than ever. With the latest cloud-based communications solutions and productivity tools, today’s workers can efficiently engage customers and collaborate with colleagues from any place, at any time. Just about any business, regardless of size or industry, can benefit from teleworking.
Everyone Wins with Teleworking
- Reduce office expenses and maintain normal business operations during weather events and emergencies.
- Workers are generally more productive, manage family emergencies and enjoy a better work-life balance.
- The general public benefits from reduced traffic congestion and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
- It’s a new era: sanctioned teleworking policies are essential for attracting and retaining young talent.
Cost Savings in Action
With more and more employees working from home and the road, many businesses are implementing hoteling programs to reduce real estate and energy costs.
Rather than having a dedicated office, on-the-go employees work out of shared workspaces, minimizing unoccupied office space.
GlaxoSmithKline, for instance, saved nearly $10 million in real-estate costs by moving 1,200 North Carolina employees to unassigned offices.
Unified Communications in the Cloud
Many businesses are augmenting or replacing conventional office telephone systems with unified communications solutions that deliver integrated voice, video, instant messaging and presence capabilities. A contemporary unified communications solution is the cornerstone of an effective teleworking program.
You probably already use apps like Skype or Google Hangouts in your personal life. Unified communications solutions provide similar capabilities plus additional business features like enhanced security, integrated corporate directories or ties into office productivity tools.
The latest cloud-based unified communications solutions like Skyway’s Kandy UC deliver a wide range of business communications services directly over the Internet.
