If you are planning on upgrading your business communication system at this time, when you have to be six feet away from each other, you may be mulling over the benefits of hosted communication services.
So COVID-19 has changed everything we think we know about the world, especially about business. In this void, VoIP solutions for businesses are emerging as unlikely saviours - as the cliché goes, perhaps not the hero we wanted, but needed.
VoIP-hosted communications have become the future of communication with more organisations starting to work remotely. COVID-19 has accelerated this trend, with certain companies like Twitter even announcing that its teams will be allowed to work remotely indefinitely.
VoIP is a widely-embraced form of communication technology with everyone from consumers to enterprises looking to make the switch from PSTN - AKA traditional phone lines. VoIP cloud computing communication is reliable in terms of service delivery and is by far one of the most convenient options around.
Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work was on the rise in Australia and in other parts of the world. In a recent McCrindle Research survey of over 580 Australians, it was discovered that if given the choice, 78% of respondents expressed a desire to spend at least a certain amount of their time working from home. In this context, how important is cloud-based communication?
What is a VoIP gateway? Many people wonder what VoIP is without realising that they’ve probably used the technology in the past, making calls through Skype, FaceTime or any of the free, internet calling programmes out there.
Remote work has been one of the biggest transformations the modern workplace and workforce have experienced in the recent past. Given the impact of COVID-19, even the staunchest naysayers found themselves in a position where WFH was the only way forward. In this vacuum, a VoIP phone system may just be the best way to leverage the advantages of an in-office setting in the absence of it.
Following the almost overnight transition to remote work, businesses have had to grapple to find solutions that make this transition easier. With communication platforms like Slack skyrocketing in usage during this time, it seems that one of the biggest concerns for business owners is seamless connectivity. That’s where VoIP providers enter the conversation.
At a time when connectivity is a prized element of any business, hosted voice solutions are now considered essential enterprise software. This is increasingly so because remote work is on the rise, and more and more companies find their teams scattered across the country or in different parts of the world.
