Whilst remote working is not a new trend, there has been a massive growth in employees working from home amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
It has been predicted that this is likely to change the way the UK works forever.
It’s not always easy to adjust to a new working environment (especially when you’ve got umpteen kids snapping at your ankles whilst you’re doing it).
CompTech IT want to make these changes as easy as possible for you and your employees. We can provide youwith tools that allow your team to communicate in real-time, manage their tasks and schedule and host meetings. And that’s just for the kick off.
This software enables super effective collaboration between colleagues. Documents can be shared and edited in real time using other Microsoft applications, such as Word or Excel.
Microsoft Teams is one of the fastest growing business platforms, with excellent video conferencing capabilities being one of its main features.
It’s a great option for internal communication, as it’s much faster than writing an email. It’s also helpful that each project can be saved in a separate feed, so no more searching through a jumble of emails to find the message you’re looking for.
VPN (Virtual Private Network)
Voice Over Internet Protocol’ is when voice traffic is carried over an internet connection, rather than a traditional telephone line. VoIP systems can be hosted either in your office or in the cloud, and are really easy to manage.
VoIP allows remote workers to connect to one another in real time, and is not only limited to audio. Video calls bring remote workers face-to-face with one another, making communication much easier.
One of the best things about VoIP systems is that they’re super affordable. Because VoIP systems have flexible structures, it’s easy to expand as needed, with new starters easily added to the system. See our phones page for more information.
