Technology has changed the way people communicate with one another, build programs that can make life just a little bit easier, and allow workers to collaborate on projects without necessarily being in the same room.
Companies have been turning towards implementing new cloud systems that allow employees to gain access in a secure manner through a multitude of devices without needing to be in the office. Other tools such as video and audio chat have allowed companies to connect from their home offices, which could be located thousands of miles apart. Another extremely popular tool in the business world is the deployment of VoIP, a technology that allows for the delivery of voice communications and other multimedia sessions over the Internet.
It’s not costly, is easy to set up, and requires very little maintenance. A recent post from 8x8 (News - Alert), Inc. described how the VoIP technology has been helping its employees to manage their daily lives while maintaining their workload.
For example, the blog describes an issue an employee recently when through when they received a call from their child’s school telling them that their daughter needed to be picked up because she was sick. She said that might not have been possible if she wasn’t able to take advantage of working from home. However, VoIP technology allows her to work while on the movie.
“It’s amazing how advances in technology, especially cloud-based VoIP and unified communications, have changed the way that people work. Not only has technology made it possible for Bella’s mom to care for her daughter while also fulfilling her work obligations, it is dramatically changing the quality of some people’s lives,” said 8x8.
8x8, Inc. is a company that specializes in offering VoIP related phone systems, cloud phone systems, and hosted contact centers for a variety of clients. The point is to make communication and collaboration and user-friendly as possible. It seems that if you have a company, regardless of the size, you might want to begin looking into these options. They are cost efficient, easy to install, and offer more capabilities than you could imagine.
