A new meaning of ‘Work from Home’

What is a Virtual Office?

A virtual office is defined as a business location that only exists in the cloud, using services and equipment hosted offsite at a service provider’s site.  This kind of office setup allows business employees to work from anywhere using devices like laptops, cell phones or IP desk phones with an internet connection.

  • IP phone service
    • allows calls to be received as a member of hunt groups or queues
    • allows local, long-distance, and four-digit extension calls to be placed

Why should your company utilize Virtual Office Services?

In today’s technology-driven business landscape, an increasing number of organizations are using the flexibility of remote workers to reduce real estate costs and to expand their employee talent pool by removing geographic constraints. With the right set of tools, remote workers can function as effectively as employees working from an office space.

Virtual Office allows remote workers to connect to their corporate infrastructure from their home or small offices, making them extended members of both the data and voice network.  Furthermore, Virtual Office data connectivity allows for secure Virtual Private Networking (VPN).  This service provides remote employees access to corporate data resources such as applications, databases, email, and file repositories. Using their own broadband internet access (cable, DSL, satellite, etc.) remote workers have greater access to the resources they need, allowing for greater efficiency and productivity.
