2015 – The year for smarter ways of working?
2015 looks set to bring even more exciting technological advances to the communications industry, helping us to achieve our New Year’s Resolution of ‘helping our clients work even smarter in 2015’.
Whether it’s streamlining business efficiencies or simply reducing your communications costs to allow for re-investment in more important areas, we hope that improving your business communications solution is also part of your New Year’s Resolution for 2015.
To kick start your year we have listed five solutions that could help you work smarter in 2015.
Vodafone One Net is an innovative unified communications solution that integrates landlines, mobiles, desktop and tablets all into one system. It allows your customers, fellow employees and suppliers to easily make contact with you at the first attempt whether you are in the office or on the move.
Vodafone One Net not only improves business efficiencies and customer service but deals with calls in a professional manner using hunt groups and auto attendants. It can even give your business a local appearance regardless of your location!
Office 365 is exactly the same Microsoft Office you use every day but comes with the added benefit of being hosted in the cloud, improving business efficiencies. The cloud hosted solution enables you to not only access your emails, calendars and documents from multiple devices wherever your business takes you, but also to collaborate using online file sharing, hosted conferencing and messaging.
Office 365 can significantly reduce your I.T. costs by moving your emails to the secure Microsoft cloud server, reducing the need for expensive servers and email licences. You also automatically receive updates to the latest versions of Office via download, rather than paying hundreds of pounds per user for the latest physical version .
If you don’t have your business fixed line solution with us then challenge us to review your existing monthly rentals and call rates with our FREE no-obligation review. Our fixed line customer base grew by more than 630% in 2014 due to our competitive line rental and call rates. Businesses saved up to 60% on their bills with many saving thousands of pounds across the life of their contract. This allowed them to re-invest in more important areas of their business or simply increase overall profits.
Adding call features to your existing fixed line solution can help your business become more efficient and professional. Are you losing business from customers who cannot contact you at the first attempt? Why not consider Answer 1571 (no longer free with BT), Call Diversion, Out of Hours Routing or Automatic Ring Back as add-ons to your existing fixed line solution? These call features are minimal in cost but can make a big difference to your business.
The range of Nokia Lumia smartphones (Now Microsoft) has made the Windows operating system the best for business.

In addition, new features such as Cortana (your personal secretary), Here Drive, and Here Maps all work together to remind you of important meetings, dates, and deadlines, ensuring you are always running on time.
