Quick Summary

Learn how a Hosted VoIP phone system can aid day-to-day productivity in your office.

Whether you're operating a startup or are a long-running SME business owner, you're likely to be open to new ways of increasing productivity amongst colleagues and employees. One valuable tool in the entrepreneurial arsenal is a hosted VoIP phone system. In a constantly changing workplace, read on to see how a VoIP phone service can get your workforce smiling.

Refresh your VoIP knowledge with our comprehensive guide to VoIP: What is VoIP and how does it work?

Flexibility to take phone calls on the move

With VoIP phone services offering fully flexible solutions, important phone calls can be taken even when not in the office. If you constantly travel for work, your business number comes with you, making the airport, hotel room or nearby café the office for the day.

Hosted VoIP aids mobile home working

The number of employees working from home increased by 1.3 million in the UK from 1998 - 2014 and this trend still shows no sign of slowing down, with over 70% of organisations expected to have adapted to some form of remote/mobile working by 2020. With that popularity, productivity seems to be following. Working from the comfort of home gradually appears to be eroding the typical 9 to 5 working day, with workers often citing that they start before 9 or work after 5. As a hosted VoIP service allows business phone numbers to be directed to any location, any calls to the office can also be forwarded to a home phone or laptop computer.

Fewer distractions with smart Call Forwarding

Mobile working can increase productivity away from the distractions associated with in-office working, but if you have to be in the office, hosted VoIP can help here too. With conditional call forwarding, it's easy to set-up call routes so phones only ring when certain phone numbers are called or if certain departments are available. This enables you and your colleagues to get right down to work with even fewer interruptions and distractions.

Speed of access via hosted VoIP

With BLF (Busy Lamp Field) features, custom shortcodes and speed dial options available with a VoIP phone system, colleagues can be reached in an instant, so there's less time wasted. There’s no need to contact the office reception for details, no need to try and remember long inter-company direct dial numbers and no need to run around the office to see if your colleague in the cubicle across the room is available or on the phone.

Hosted VoIP gives job satisfaction a helping hand

According to research from the Centre for Economics and Business Research, around 65% of employees working flexibly are happy with their work-life balance. When compared with those without flexible working opportunities, this number drops to only 47% happiness with their work-life balance. With a recent report published by IZA World of Labor showing a direct link between wellbeing and corporate performance, a happy workplace is definitely a productive one. With VoIP phone services empowering flexible workers, happy, productive employees are only a few clicks away.

More heads, fewer headaches

When compared with traditional ISDN phone lines and hardware, hosted VoIP is a system that easily grows and evolves with your business. As more employees join your business and your productivity increases, the unlimited scalability of VoIP ensures you'll still find it as easy to add 100 new phone extensions as you would to add one.

So get started with our instant setup VoIP phone system now and see how it can help increase productivity around your workplace today.
