Many companies over the last several years have started to rely on remote workers. Along comes 2020 and its game-changing pandemic that changed the way businesses have had to adjust their operations.
Shiseido, a cosmetics business in Japan, called for 8000 employees to work from home out of concerns over the virus. In London, Crossrail, OMD, and Chevron have asked employees to work remotely.
Even businesses struggling like Hitachi, whose sales fell by 33% last year, have asked employees to work from home during the pandemic. Tencent, a company famous in China for video games, has asked mainland employees to work remotely.
There are many practical challenges for any company that would struggle to operate entirely virtually, just because of their businesses’ very nature. Examples include Starbucks, real-estate firms, and restaurants.
Companies that had no remote workers have found the need to have some or, in some cases, even all employees work from home.
When asking employees to work remotely, it’s crucial to give employees access to technologies that support them as individuals and as teams to do their best work.

The critical component of unified communications is “presence.” The ability to know where the intended recipients of communication are, and if they are available, in real-time. All the systems and applications an employee is already using are integrated, and those systems all work together in real-time.
Remote workers can seamlessly collaborate with other persons on a project in separate locations. Our cloud-based system users can quickly locate the necessary person and communicate with text messaging, a voice call, or a video call.
