With so many businesses currently operating remotely, it’s so important to make sure your staff have everything they need to work effectively and stay connected with customers and colleagues at any time, from anywhere.
Without the right business communication solutions available for a flexible workforce, business continuity could be significantly affected, and productivity could rapidly decrease. Therefore, it’s vital to surround yourselves with communications tools that enable your business to successfully function, no matter where your teams are working from.
To help you with this, our tech experts have put together a handy checklist of the products and services you need to create a productive and successful working environment, where staff can continue to communicate effectively while accessing everything they need, no matter their location.
A flexible business phone system
A cloud phone system, such as our fully scalable cloud telephony platform, NT Cloud PRO, is an ideal communication solution for flexible and remote workforces. Affordable, reliable and easy to use, cloud telephony allows staff to work from any location of their choosing, thanks to its ability to work from any device!
With no additional hardware or cabling needed, employees will be able to maintain their productivity levels and stay connected from their home working space. All they need is a stable Wi-Fi connection and they’re ready to work! What’s more, most cloud phone systems are compatible with plug and play handsets, such as our award-winning video phone, NT Multimedia, for ultimate flexibility!
Cloud phone systems are also packed full of futureproof features, including the ability to let your team mates know when you’re online and able to take a call, by using the presence function to update your availability. Additionally, the online admin portal allows you to easily and quickly manage your users and settings from wherever you’re working. Need to add or remove a contact to your business address book? Amend your on-hold marketing? Manage your call history or listen to call recordings? With a cloud phone system, this is no problem at all!
A reliable and easy to use video conferencing platform
For a remote workforce to operate successfully and connect effectively, a video conferencing platform is a must-have communication solution. With the rise of flexible and remote working, video calls have very much become a part of our daily work lives and allow us to have meetings, conduct presentations and simply stay in touch with one another, when face-to-face conversations aren’t an option.
Thankfully, there are an impressive number of video conference solutions on the market, but this alone can make the decision of which one to choose, a little daunting. Most importantly, it’s vital to opt for one that will allow your workforce to do everything in a video call, what you would in a face-to-face meeting. For instance, our PRO video conferencing platform, Enreach meetings, comes equipped with a range of dynamic and easy to use features that allow you to get the most out of your video calls and make sure the experience is as immersive as possible.
With no download required, Enreach meetings works on any of your favourite devices, allows you to share your screen, share documents, take notes, instant message, record your meetings and have complete control over the camera and microphone. What’s more, you can invite up to 25 participants into each meeting, use the featured stickers to let other people know what you’re thinking and feeling, and use the active speaker function to enlarge the screen for anyone currently speaking or presenting in a meeting!
A communications solution that does it all
For those businesses who would prefer to have an all-in-one solution that combines a state of the art handset with video calling functionality, a smart video phone, such as our industry leading device, NT Multimedia, is the perfect choice.
With an 8” HD quality screen, an advanced mega pixel camera and free video calling, NT Multimedia is truly like no other business phone system. Available as a plug and play handset, NT Multimedia can be used from any location with a Wi-Fi connection, making it the perfect choice for those remote working or splitting their time between the office and home. All you need to do is plug in, connect to the Wi-Fi, and you’re all set and ready to go!
What’s more, with the ability to do whatever your smartphone and tablet can do, users are able to personalise their device to help them maximise their productivity and efficiency. With customisable features, including desktop wallpapers, individual logins for your chosen apps, and the capability to choose different ringtones for your various contact groups, NT Multimedia will cater to your individual business needs, to allow you to work your way. Plus, NT Multimedia is open source, so you’re able to download whatever apps you need to work smarter, faster and easier, wherever you’re working from.
