What would you give for the opportunity to work from home? Many people would love to do their jobs without having to spend what seems like an age waiting for their bus to arrive and then be stuck in traffic before they arrive to the office later than expected. A lot of employees with smaller companies are open to the idea of remote working because it’s more convenient, but how would they communicate with the office?
You could always use e-mail, as it’s easy to use if you’re sat at your desk typing all day. Failing that, there’s your phone or instant messaging, and you can also use video conferencing from Powwownow. Video conferencing is perhaps the most effective communication tool you could possibly have when you need to contact the office in a hurry, especially if you need to get your point across as effectively as you can.
You can arrange a conference call in just a few minutes and invite a number of people, which is handy if you need to arrange a prompt meeting with a client or some of your co-workers. Participating in a conference call is preferable to travelling to the office for a meeting, as you save money on travel, plus you can continue with working from home without interruption.
