Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Top tools for flexible working

Has your business invested in technology that allows you to work whenever and wherever you need to  – even when the snow hits? Here’s our top choice of tools:

Office 365

Microsoft Office 365 is the cost-effective smart solution to cloud computing. Office 365 ensures emails, calendar and contacts are automatically updated across your PC’s and Smartphones so you can access customer details and schedule that prospect meeting whether at home or in the office.

Office 365

VoIP

Thanks to bigger and better data capabilities, businesses can take advantage of VoIP aka the “Voice Over Internet Protocol”. This flexible phone system allows you to make calls over your internet connection.

Incoming phone calls are routed to your VoIP phone where-ever you plug it into the network so you can unplug your desk-phone from the office, plug it in at home and work as normal – providing complete flexibility.

Better yet if the snow strikes, you can record a message remotely to inform customers that although the office may be closed, business is still open as usual.
