The COVID-19 pandemic sped up an already growing trend of working from home. Businesses realize that if their employees have the right tools to communicate and collaborate effectively, then the square footage of the business office can be reduced drastically, and in some cases, removed altogether. According to an article written by Stanford University, 42% of the U.S. labor force is now working from home full-time. With much of the U.S. workforce increasingly wanting to work remotely, your business needs to be prepared. DTC can help your business with the communication tools your employees need to be successful.

Unified Communications

Interoffice communication can prove to be difficult when employees are working remotely. A unified communication solution can eliminate these difficulties and help your employees communicate and collaborate. There are many benefits to utilizing a unified communication solution.

  • Reduced Costs. Upgrading from an on-premise phone system to a cloud system will save your company money. Your business will no longer need to upgrade or replace servers or pay technicians to fix any issues. Since our unified communication solution is hosted in the cloud, you can scale up or down to match demand.
  • Flexibility. Your employees can use their personal cell phones to connect to the company network and have their work number displayed if they make calls to customers.
  • Video Conferencing. Communication and collaboration can be difficult while working remotely, but video conferencing eliminates these frustrations. Video conferencing allows for screen sharing, which will increase the collaborative efforts of your employees. Additionally, your business can hold sales meetings and presentations. Having virtual meetings still allows for face-to-face communication while eliminating the need to travel during the pandemic.
  • Improved Collaboration. With features such as video conferencing, presence monitoring, and instant messaging, your employees will be efficient and productive while working from home.
