Has lockdown got you thinking about how you can manage your company remotely?
Business plans have changed significantly over the last year which may be making you think about how your teams can work from remote locations, here’s our quick tips for running a successful remote business.
Have Confidence in the Cloud
Cloud servers ensure your employees have secure access to all documents, software and data, anytime, anywhere.
A cost-effective, stable and scalable solution, cloud servers ensure your employees can continue to operate even more efficiently out of the office, whilst also saving you from hardware issues.
Streamline Your System
Gone are the days where customers could reach a business with a simple phone call to a central line.
Remote companies have had to seek alternative solutions, such as a Voice over IP (VoIP) telephone system. VoIP systems allow companies to make and receive calls via the internet, with all employees linked into the system via remote access.
With meetings being conducted virtually, you’ll need to ensure your internet connection is fast enough to cope – a slow connection can create frustration for both you and your client!
When it comes to one-on-one video calls, a download speed of 5 Mbps (megabytes per second) is recommended, larger video conference calls will require 10 Mbps for an HD quality stream.
With cyber criminals becoming ever more sophisticated, it’s essential that your data is as secure as it can be when working remotely.
Start by adopting cloud software, as most of these solutions come with in-built firewalls and encryption. It’s also worth engaging with a managed IT company, who can equip your team with all the necessary security software, provide cybersecurity training and offer 24/7 support in the event of a breach.
