No matter what you do, whether you’re a sole-trader, run an SME or are the CEO of a large organisation, the ability to work whenever and wherever you need or want to is hugely important. Time is money, and losing either because you’re stuck at home with the kids because of a teaching strike or the car’s broken down is something few of us have any tolerance for.
These days we’re surrounded by tech which serves to make our lives easier, and as a result we can appear to be in the office, whilst actually being in a secluded cabin in the middle of the woods (signal permitting, of course). It’s this sort of tech, when it comes to all forms of telecommunication that we at Diamond Solutions specialise in.
Often we talk about the benefits of ensuring your work can be transported, and having all the right devices to allow for this, but we know many shrug it off. What disaster could possibly befall them that means they can’t get in to the office? The Boxing Day floods of 2015 immediately spring to mind; however, recently we’ve had our own disruption.
As many of you are no doubt aware, our MD, Tony has been out of the office for some time following his recent appendectomy. Thankfully he is making a swift recovery and will be back soon, but for us in the office, it’s as though he’s already here again thanks to the marvel of modern technology.
Our office phone calls can be diverted to his mobile, if necessary (though, we are trying very hard to ensure he does actually get some rest whilst he’s at home), all his emails are fully accessible, as are any files he needs because everything we do is in the Cloud.
If messages need to be left, they can be easily retrieved from our in-house system without him having to leave the comfort of the sofa. There’s no pressure on having to be anywhere at a particular time, and therefore no need for him to rush his recovery.
As we’re hopeful he might be reading this, we say again: there is no need for you to rush your recovery!!!
Having your office or business set up to come with these sorts of challenges ensures that there’s one less thing to worry about if the unexpected does occur. There’s a lot to be said for not having to panic about how to get in touch with a particular client, or chasing up an order, or obtaining the information you need to complete a deal.
If you want to find out more about future-proofing your business, and ensuring you are fully connected when you want to be (but can still switch off when you don’t want to be), then get in touch with us today. We are experts at what we do, and can provide you with the best advice to ensure you have everything you need to keep on moving forward, no matter what life throws at you.
