Given the current climate, customers may reasonably expect some impact on ‘business as usual’. If you have the right tools in place to ensure an effective work-from-home setup up you could quite easily re-create a respectable working arrangement in your living room, meaning minimal impact on your ability as a company to keep on working! We’re all in this together, and for how long none of us know, so to help you make sure your business is running as smoothly as can be, we’ve put together a list of our top 5 technology must haves.

  1. An internet telephony service – This will allow you to keep in touch with colleagues without needing to use landlines and mobiles.
  2. A Virtual Private Network (VPN) - Particularly necessary for those working in finance, support or customer facing roles where connection to the company network is essential for day to day tasks.
  3. A high-speed internet connection – Makes for better productivity, lower stress levels and smoother uploads and downloads…. 67% for 20 mins can be very frustrating!
  4. A soft phone or mobile phone – Allowing you to take calls on the move.
  5. Suitable headset and/or camera combination - You still need to be able to conduct those important face to face meetings via conference / video call.
