While telecommuting has existed for years and years, it has never been as effective and productive as it is today thanks to VoIP and Unified Communications. With benefits to both employees and employers, telecommuting is a real option today using UC tools such as gloCOM.
A few major trends have made effective telecommuting not only possible, but maybe even the best option for many companies: The Internet, Mobility, and Globalization.
Nowadays there is Internet access virtually anywhere, whether via Wi-Fi hotspots or LTE data. That plus the constant presence of smart phones, tablets, and portable laptops means that anywhere can become an office in just moments.
Telecommuting is not only plausible; it’s advantageous to many companies today. Globalization means that companies have customers, suppliers, even competitors across the world. It only makes sense to have employees with just as far a reach.
gloCOM softphone enables users to work effectively anywhere with an Internet connection. From crystal clear individual or conference calls to file and screen sharing to group and individual chat, gloCOM will convert into a virtual office anywhere in the world. It overcomes archaic barriers to remote working such as the inability to communicate or technical difficulties. It even monitors productivity and keeps management up-to-date and involved.
Telecommuting provides several benefits to both employees and employers in the following ways:
- Better employees
- Increased employee retention
- Increased productivity & collaboration
