5 Benefits of VoIP for Remote Working | Tackling Coronavirus Isolation

Remote teams of workers and employees are becoming more and more common and with the evolving situation relating to the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) for many businesses the decision is now out of their hands and, in fact, VoIP is something that they wish they’d introduced into their workforce earlier!

VOIP or Voice Over Internet Protocol has changed the communication dynamic entirely. It has become a fast and efficient way for all communication needs. VoIP is taking over the business of telecommunication providers step-by-step. VoIP is an efficient and cheap alternative of communication for both personal and business use

So, how can it benefit remote working?

1. Working on the Go

VoIP allows workers to work on the go, which is especially attractive for those in positions such as sales as they travel much of the time. With VoIP, they have access to communication tools just as they would at home or the office. VoIP systems can integrate with smartphones so that individuals can stay connected to incoming phone calls, new tasks, and more.

2. Central Hub for Information

One of the biggest hurdles in a remote workforce is defining central hubs for information. Organizing documents and data on a VoIP platform offers employees the ability to do this. With accessibility and one source of truth, there’s not a constant back and forth via email, where documents are edited individually. With a central hub, you won’t miss any edits or comments and you’ll experience more seamless workflows.

3. Improved Productivity

VoIP platforms are designed to help workers get more done faster. VoIP allows instant communication, so your staff can get feedback and make decisions sooner. There’s also the time factor. If an employee has the ability to work from home a few days a week, they cut out the commute. They have more time to focus on projects without distractions.

4. Better Reliability

With VoIP, you’ll have much better communication quality and reliability. Because it works on the cloud, it’s not in danger of being out of commission because of hardware failures. Plus, most VoIP providers have strong uptime percentages and can reroute calls in the event of an outage.

5. Enhanced Security

VoIP is a secure way to communicate and share data. The data remains private and secure in a SOC 2-audited cloud. The system is always updated to the latest version, hindering the ability for cyber-attacks. Because your employees will be using VoIP over a VPN, you can ensure that everything stays within your protected environment rather than worrying about whether an internet source is a secured network.
