Full-Time Parenting Made Easier with VoIP
A recent study conducted by the European telecom group O2 found that nearly half of women workers feel that they will never enjoy having a satisfying career balanced with a satisfying family life. These women report that they have an entirely different work and home persona, which is extremely difficult to maintain.
Vonjour, the new uber intelligent business phone system and customer support solution, has worked with software advice columnist Matt Paulson to provide a guide on how businesses can empower remote employees with cloud based phone solutions and communications tools.
Full-time parenting is nearly impossible in today’s economy, since both parents usually have to work to support a family. Children are usually a family’s biggest priority, but it is increasingly difficult for parents to make the necessary time to spend with their families.
One solution to this growing issue involves using the Internet to make phone calls. Businesses that use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology to operate their company phone systems can connect phones in many locations to the same internal calling network, including home and even mobile phones.
Business VoIP services are better than traditional landline phone systems in almost every way imaginable. They cost less money, offer a higher audio quality, and even include several features for free that other phone companies charge monthly fees for.
Because business VoIP information is sent through the Internet instead of through outdated landlines, it is simply a more efficient way to send information. More efficient technology and infrastructure uses fewer resources, which costs less money overall.
The fact that most of the data exchange happens online makes business VoIP extremely convenient for telecommuting. A VoIP phone system is accessible from various locations, whether that be another office in a remote location or a smaller home office for a busy mother or father. Since they are all on the same network, they are reached by simply dialing an extension and can communicate between their desks at no extra cost.
Moms Stay Productive
Thanks to the innovations of business VoIP and Internet calling, parents can be a valuable part of the workforce without having to leave their kids for even a second. Mobile VoIP services even make sure that the office will treat their smartphone like a pocket-sized office phone when parents have to drop their kids off at school or attend a PTA meeting.
With kids around, parents often find both of their hands busy. Fortunately, hands-free VoIP headsets allow parents to take part in meetings or even close business deals while changing diapers or washing dishes. Business VoIP packages also have extremely low international rates, which allows busy parents to “work overseas” without leaving the nursery.
Should parents become overwhelmed when the little ones start getting out of hand, they still have access to several helpful business features, including:
• Call forwarding
• Call holding (with music)
• Multiple phone lines
• Automated attendants
• Call blocking
• Conference calling
• And many more
That way, parents can be employee of the month while still being the best mom or dad around. A business VoIP phone system not only makes this possible, it makes it easier.
