13 Mar Preparing Your Business for Working From Home
The Coronavirus has led to the cancelation of many events, and even more just in this last week. Many states are even encouraging companies to allow their employees to work from home, to help alleviate the rapid spread of the virus.
As your company prepares to work in a distributed environment, you might have a lot of concerns about how production and business operations will be able to continue. While most employees have computers at home they can use to remote into the office environment, the phones might pose a complication for you.
Using VOIP (voice over IP) can help you maintain business operations for your own company in the event employees are asked to stay home. In fact, briteCITY offers its own VOIP services that allow you to grab the phone off of your desk and set it up at your house easily. This will enable you to utilize the phone system from the office from any location so you don’t miss any important calls. You can view more information about our VOIP services here.
If you aren’t already using briteCITY’s VOIP services, we are offering a special deal right now, so business owners can take advantage of these capabilities NOW. If you sign up for our VOIP services, you can have the first TWO months of service absolutely free.
We understand that these are difficult times, and the need for the service is immediate. This is why we have decided to offer it for free for the first two months, in order to help businesses get through this difficult time.
Another concern business owners might have is regarding the level of service you might experience from briteCITY. We are planning to be just as busy, if not busier than usual trying to help people get connected to work so they can perform their job remotely.
The good news in all of this for our clients is that briteCITY has been unknowingly preparing for this moment for the last year. In April 2019 briteCITY made the decision to move to a distributed work environment and has been operating as such for almost a year now. The level of service you experience from briteCITY will be at the same high level you have been accustomed to, as our business operations will not need to change.
We are confident that we will be able to weather this storm while helping all of our clients do the same. While we may not be able to help you with childcare needs due to school closures, we can make sure your transition to temporarily working from home goes as smoothly as possible.
Your business may even find that working from home is a great option going forward as we have discovered. Continue to look for the silver lining in all of this. These are definitely trying times and it seems things may get a little worse before they start getting better. We pray they will start getting better for everyone very soon.
Please, as always, call us if you have any questions about how to maintain your business operations in a distributed environment, or if you need to sign up for our VOIP services.
