To keep your business functioning, you can provide the right tools for your employees to work from home.

There’s No Geographical Restrictions

With VoIP, you can pursue your day to day business activities from the comfort of your home. If your workers have access to internet-enabled devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets, they can remain in contact with their fellow employees and clients.

Don’t presume that your business must close its doors simply because your workers have been ordered to self-isolate. With VoIP, you can just turn your team into remote workers.

Video Calls Can Provide Medical Assistance

The problem with COVID-19 is that it is so infectious that people are encouraged to avoid personal visits to their doctor if they observe symptoms associated with coronavirus. This has become a source of considerable discomfort to people who find the idea of staying away from their doctor even when they are sick quite ridiculous.

However, VoIP permits you to make video calls. This could enable your doctor to perform a medical diagnoses and consultations from a distance. And it keeps everyone involved safe.

Video Calls Support Remote Learning

Businesses are not the only ones that are suffering considerably from the coronavirus outbreak. Schools all over the UK have been forced to close. However, students are not just sitting at home waiting for the quarantine to end.

Some schools have started using VoIP technology to teach students from home. As with remote workers, any child with an internet-enabled device can participate in lessons with their teacher and fellow students without leaving the comfort of their home.

This trend has already caught on in some corners of the UK and it is expected to expand, especially in those areas where children have easy access to computers and smartphones.
