Does your company employ remote workers? How are you connecting with those workers? There are actually many ways to keep these workers connected with your in office personnel. This can include things like Hosted VoIP phone systems, audio and web conferencing, and Meraki network administration. Each of these methods can be used to get your remote workers connected individually but they work best when implemented together.
Hosted VoIP phone systems are extremely helpful for this because of how they store data. A Hosted VoIP system stores the data on the phone rather than at the jack in the wall. This enables your remote workers to have their phone programmed at the office and then just plug it in when they get it. This saves them hours of setup that they might not be an expert at. Hosted VoIP isn’t the only way to connect your remote workers though. Audio and web conferencing are great ways to get your remote workers connected to their co-workers. It allows them to contribute to discussions in real time and is very valuable for remote workers who are a part of teams that have members in the office. Finally, the Meraki line of network security and administration appliances allow you to set up a virtual private network for your remote workers. This allows them to access files on your server so it is almost like they are in the office. This makes collaboration much easier and much more secure than free cloud services.
As was said earlier, all of these solutions will work well individually to get your remote workers connected but the largest benefit comes from using all of these products as a group. This unified communications system will allow your remote workers to have every advantage that your in office personnel have and will allow you to hire talent without having to worry about location.
