Using communication tools and computing technology mean that many businesses can operate from almost anywhere, providing they have access to a reliable internet connection.
The desktop is no longer the primary method through which people use the internet and with technological developments always advancing, workplaces are continuously becoming more and more flexible.
To ensure your business works from anywhere, you need to be using communication tools that will increase your business’ productivity and flexibility. In this blog, we’ll guide you through the ways in which you can use unified communications to allow your business to operate from almost anywhere.
Follow me Telephone Services
A follow-me service allows multiple numbers to be routed to a single phone or answering service. This is useful if you work in different geographic regions and want to remain accessible to your clients at all times. Besides the benefit of being able to access work calls on the go, you can also ensure that your personal mobile number remains private, creating a strong barrier between your work and personal lives.
Remote Desktop Connection
With Remote Desktop Connection, you can connect to a computer running Windows from another computer running Windows that’s connected to the same network or to the Internet. For example, you can use all your work computer’s programs, files, and network resources from your home computer, and it’s just like you’re sitting in front of your computer at work.
Working remotely used to mean you needed help from an IT friend or cousin to set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) so you could access your files from the office. With Office 365, this isn’t necessary. You don’t need any special configuration or IT skills. All you need is an internet connection and you can start working. It’s that simple!
Better use of technology gives your team the flexibility to work anywhere.
