By now, you’ve probably come to terms with the fact that you’re going to be working at home for the foreseeable. Your commute has been replaced with a lie-in and your dog is happier than ever.
However, one thing you may be struggling to manage is your productivity. What’s more, digital communication isn’t always as effective as face-to-face communication with messages being misread, misinterpreted – or in some cases, ignored.
But we’re here to help! We pride ourselves on connecting people, and if you’re unsure on the next best step for optimising performance, we’re on-hand to recommend a solution.
So, let’s work together
Easy steps to getting agile
You might not be used to having staff out of the office. But we’ve got a few tips and tools we think might help:
• Use cloud desktops and servers to operate your computers from any location
• Have morning video calls with your team to keep up business continuity
• Use Microsoft Teams app to chat or video call colleagues through your computer
• Adopt project management software like Trello to visualise your team’s workflow
• Create a channel for staff comms that isn’t on social media
• Connect your devices anywhere via 4G using e-SIMs
• Switch your phone calls to voip to operate from anywhere
• Cut line costs and turn personal devices into work phones with our voip softphone
Each of the above will help keep you connected, with the latter being an option we can set you up with ourselves today.

VoIP makes working from anywhere easy
One solution to the drop in productivity that could result from remote working is VoIP phone systems.
Ideal for businesses seeking a feature-rich device without paying upfront cash, these phones are simple to use and easy to install.
And, as a result of choosing hosted phone systems you get to cut line rental costs and enjoy free calls to other VoIP users.
Using our hosted phone system you can get up and running in seconds and access your calls through our softphone app from anywhere!
Safely access company data from your own home
Ask any expert and they’ll tell you the same thing. Remote working or even bring your own device policies aren’t safe, unless you’re using hosted desktops.
Using the cloud, hosted desktops allow users to access their company desktop via the internet without relying on hardware.
You get to enjoy lower maintenance costs, your staff benefit from flexible working and everyone can rest knowing their actions are covered entirely by the company’s cybersecurity procedures.
We want you to know that like every other business, we’re doing everything we can to get through this and help others.
Which is why if you’d be interested in more tips and techniques for increasing your connectivity or communication, you can check out our blog or speak to a member of the team.
Until then, stay safe.
