Even before the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, there was a worldwide shift starting towards working remotely or from home. Although COVID-19 has certainly accelerated the movement, with all of us having to shift our attitudes and working practices rapidly, it’s actually working out incredibly well for many employers and employees. Over 76% of people working from home surveyed recently have claimed they are more relaxed and ultimately much more productive working in their own spaces and of course businesses have realised significant savings in not having to run a commercial premises. Going forward, it is likely that many businesses will choose to adopt some element of home working in their new ‘business as usual’ so how do you make sure your staff are set up for success?
Flexible Ways of Talking to Each Other
NECs new Univerge Blue system, launched in June 2021, provides a full suite of communication tools for your teams including telephone, video calls, conference calling and instant messenger. It gives your teams a wide variety of options for staying in touch with one another and working collaboratively, wherever they might be based.
Ease of Use
Like other VoIP systems, all you need for Univerge Blue to work for you is an active broadband connection. Staff no longer need to cart home all of their bulky office equipment and find enough space at home to fit it all in. Rather a single telephone handset and laptop is all that is needed to recreate the office at home: it really couldn’t be easier.
Protect Your Data
Fully cloud based, the Univerge Blue system stores your company data safely and securely and makes it available for staff to access from anywhere in the world. Teams can work exactly as they would be able to in the office safe in the knowledge that all company information and systems are secure.
Truly Agile Working
As well as the ease of simply plugging a handset into a broadband connection and getting started, the Univerge Blue system comes with handy mobile apps for most platforms. For those team members who are struggling to find dedicated office space at home, they are free to move around the house whilst maintaining the same functionality via the app. When the time comes, teams who work on the road or from multiple locations can maintain the same levels of service wherever they go.
