In response to the uncertainty presented by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, remote working has been on the rise as businesses and government ask employees to practice social distancing. However, some organizations are realizing they may not be ready to support a remote workforce.
To maintain business continuity, communication is key; and ensuring employees can stay connected while working from home is essential for remote work collaboration.
A few common challenges of working from home include a lack of face-to-face interaction, difficulties accessing information, and social isolation.
Luckily, by using a softphone solution like Bria, and having the right processes in place, managers can support remote employees through this transition. Establishing structured daily check-ins are a great way to ensure business operations stay on track. Maintaining communication through video conferences with employees can put things on a more personal level to improve company morale as well.
In order to facilitate these key working practices in remote setting, softphones can quickly empower your team with all of the expected tools of a modern workplace.
A softphone can also enable your team to take their business number with them, regardless of where they are, and which device they are using. A softphone like Bria can also provide additional tools to easily share a presentation on their screen, and meet face to face on video calls, and even transfer files within a chat. With all of these tools available, Bria softphones enable effective team collaboration, time-sensitive communication, and boost employee productivity.
