There has been a growing trend where businesses are allowing more employees to work from home or other remote locations. Technology makes this possible by letting users remote into their work environment securely as if they were sitting at their desk at the office. VoIP phone solutions can even bring the worker's office phone to them, no matter where they are.
VoIP already has plenty of benefits for small and medium businesses. It's easy to manage, easy to scale, and it saves a lot of money on annual communication expenses. One of the often underutilized features of a VoIP system is that you are no longer tethered to your desk to make and receive calls. Your VoIP phone can be plugged in anywhere there is a broadband internet connection and behave just as if it were sitting on your desk at the office. Cool, right?
Depending on the phone, you can plug it directly into a router or broadband modem, a USB port on a desktop PC or laptop, and some can even connect to any Wi-Fi network. Access your company voice mail, use company extensions, and any other feature your phone system has from anywhere. Telecommunication isn't just for employees working from home, however. It helps owners, managers, and remote offices stay connected under a single system, making it cheaper to manage.
