In our last blog entry, we introduced a new work style with the theme of “Balancing work and children.” Today will we return the focus to business people who work for companies and how mobile work can provide flexibility outside the office.
As a society, we have moved well past the idea that company employees only work in offices. It is quite common to see people opening laptop computers on trains, in airports, and at coffee shops. Also, the number of regular employees working at home and freelancers without fixed offices are increasing. In all of these various ways, IT is being utilized to find the best solution.
However, the role of the telephone is becoming a problem as mobile work increases. Traditionally, business phone calls were only made and received at the office. Now many workers need to use the telephone when on the go. Yet some people are understandably reluctant to use their private mobile phones and calling plans when working, and there are legitimate security issues that need to be considered as well.
The old answer to this problem required a great deal of time and money to purchase, distribute, and manage mobile business phones to all employees.
This system was generally designed to use a regular telephone line and a device called a “private branch exchange” (PBX) to connect with the mobile business phones. The hardware and administrative expenses can be very expensive, as well as the calling fees.
The newest solution is now called “Cloud PBX,” which provides the advantages of regular PBX on mobile workers’ phones.
There are many benefits of Cloud PBX:
● No extra equipment needed
● No construction of new systems
● Quick introduction and adoption
● Reduced costs
Cloud PBX allows mobile workers to use their private mobile phones as an extension of their business phones back at the office. In this way, they do not have to use their private phone numbers and calling plans to conduct business by phone.
With this new service from PBXL, there is a variety of functions to choose from, such as call forwarding, group settings, and intranet extension, according to your budget.
The Japanese government is currently moving in the direction of increasing the number of mobile workers. Why not consider introducing Cloud PBX as an optimal solution for your mobile work needs?
