VoIP Phones Make All The DifferenceWays to Start Working Efficiently From Home

The key to remote working is staying connected, so why not free up your iPhone by investing in a VoIP phone? They work exactly the same as a normal phone, cost a fraction of the price, won’t go flat and always have a signal. What more could you want when you need to stay connected on a Monday morning?

Get Help With Call Handling

Remember when you’d sit at your desk and have half a dozen people wander over to you almost at once? Well, they’re still going to want to pick your brains now that you’re working remotely. Overflow call handling is the smart way to ensure you’re not forever being chased up with missed calls and trying to work through a backlog of voicemails, so give it some thought.

Virtual Numbers Simplify Everything

Want to try and separate your work life from your home life when you’re working at home? We bet you do; so why not take a look at a virtual number? They’re the quick and easy way to direct your colleagues, customers and clients to your new work line.

Make Sure It’s Plug and Play

The beauty of a VoIP device is that you can literally take it straight from the office, plug it into your home router, and you are good to go. If you hadn’t already thought about going down this route, we bet you will now!

Make Use of Call Diverts

Just because you’re now working remotely doesn’t mean you can’t take time off. In fact, during these often stressful times a little downtime could be just what you need. Making use of custom call diverts will allow you to reroute your clients’ calls whenever you need to — a useful option to have at your disposal.

Mobile Mirroring Makes Life Easier
