When the London Business School hosted its annual Global Leadership Summit in June 2014, the school surveyed attendees about a variety of modern business issues and workforce communication. While the results of that survey covered a variety of topics, one of the really interesting findings was that respondents believed that half of their employees would be working remotely by 2020.
Think about that for a second. In just six years, 50% of your organization may be working from somewhere other than your business’ corporate or regional office. That figure may sound like a stretch, but a recent New York Times article revealed that telecommuting grew by 79% between 2005 and 2012 — and that number is expected to rise even more over the next decade.
So, what does this mean for the future of business?
For starters, it means that organizations must find ways to empower their employees to work effectively and efficiently from any location.
SIP may be the solution to keeping your employees empowered and efficient:
- Move offices and keep the same number — SIP trunks are not bound to a location, so its easy to move offices without having to change your stationary or inform your customers. No need to hassle and pay a telco to divert phone calls.
- Better customer service – Provide better customer service by adding more geographical & international numbers. Just by adding numbers to your SIP trunk and terminating them on your IP PBX you can give you workforce more options to dial in, at a significantly lower cost. Reduce the barrier to connect and increase productivity.
- Cost Reduction — One of the most significant advantages of SIP trunking is its ability to combine data, voice and video in a single line, eliminating the need for separate physical media for each mode. The result is reduced overall cost and enhanced reliability for multimedia services. The monthly fee to have a number of lines installed at your office drops significantly with SIP trunks.
