Five Holiday Gifts for Your Business That Will Improve Telecommunications
With new budgets around the corner, the year’s end is an ideal time to consider new ways to improve office productivity and efficiency – a gift for your workplace, if you will.
And when it comes to telecommunications, there’s a long list of technologies that have the potential to streamline and enhance your office communications network.
To take the guesswork out of it, we’ve put together a list of the latest telecom technologies that would make great additions for your company as you prepare for 2015.
1. Microsoft Office 365
Microsoft Office 365 offers a wide range of capabilities, and because it is cloud-based, employees can connect to their applications from virtually anywhere and on any device, plus they can securely share files with coworkers and clients. Whether it’s a missed appointment or an overlooked email, keeping communication clear is always a challenge, but with Office 365, calendars and emails sync from anywhere so that people can stay on schedule.
We just recently finished on-boarding our Office 365 platform, and it’s already generating new opportunities for us to maximize our workflow in the office and in the field.
2. VoIP/Hosted Phone System
With a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system, office phones become powerful productivity tools, thanks to available software that provides a level of intelligence and functionality typical of smartphones. Because VoIP can all be managed from the cloud, you also don’t need someone necessarily onsite to maintain the phones.
3. Telecom Bill Optimization
When you receive invoices from multiple carriers for a variety of services, it can be hard to keep up and ensure you have the best possible pricing. You need the gift of our bill optimization program, which helps you get the most service for your money.
This services takes all of your telecom bills and reviews them for accuracy and savings or optimization opportunities.
Have you grabbed the latest iPhone yet, or are you a loyal fan of your Blackberry? Whether Android or IPhone, Windows or Mac, the mobile device market is highly saturated with the latest and greatest, shiniest and fastest.
This diversity of mobile devices can create challenges for companies seeking to synchronize platforms across devices. AirWatch Mobile Device Management provides a simplified way to view and manage all devices from a central admin console to protect against threats to corporate security. The software provides visibility into all enrolled corporate-owned, employee-owned and shared devices regardless of platform or device type. AirWatch can be customized to define enterprise settings, policies and restrictions.
If you’re looking for the workplace gift that keeps on giving, more bandwidth could be the perfect fit. As our digital footprint grows, we expect businesses to use about 50 Mbps on average in the next three years, compared to the average of about 10 Mbps used today. The more bandwidth you have to support your digital functions, the less jitter and packet loss problems you’ll encounter. Not to mention, you’ll have increased speed and efficiency to handle web browsing, high volume file downloads, video conferencing and desktop sharing.
There are many technology solutions available whether you’re looking to foster collaboration in the workplace, track corporate-owned devices or simply upgrade your lagging Internet speed.
