Working from home during COVID-19

Working From Home solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic

COVID-19 has shocked the world. Business are waking up to find they are woefully unprepared as their employees are required to work remotely.

Can your business function when all your employees are working from home? 

According to the Office for National Statistics, in April 2020, 46.6% of people in employment did some work at home. Of those who did some work from home, 86.0% did so as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Since 2012 we have been helping companies with business continuity, making sure they are unaffected by disasters or unplanned incidents. The examples we used to use were flooding, snow and cyber attacks. We had no idea what 2020 had in store.

The products we deliver to these companies have allowed them to send their employees home, without any impact on their day to day activities. 

We make sure employees can can work in their homes, as if they’re at their desks. We’ve been installing business-grade internet to homes, so they don’t have to rely on a poorer quality, residential product. We’ve also been upgrading phone systems to our Cloud Voice product, allowing them to make, receive and transfer calls from their mobiles, as if they were using their desk phones.

Take your work number everywhere

Make and receive calls as if you’re at your desk. Never miss a call again.

Gone are the days where you have to be at your desk in the office to make and receive work calls. Traditional phone lines and ISDN products are not only more costly, but they have limited functionality and do not allow for remote working. Now, more than ever, it’s essential for businesses to move to a VoIP product, and our Cloud Voice product gives you everything you need.

Cloud Voice - Calls from home as if you're at your desk.

Business grade internet at home

Don’t let your employees suffer.

Would you install a residential internet product in your place of work, with poor reliability, shocking service levels and support teams who read off a script? This is exactly what your employees are now dealing with when they work from home.

We are installing business internet into homes across the UK, keeping people online, offering our exceptional support and making sure we keep everyone online, all the time.

We’ve saved money by closing our office permanently and instead, we pay for business internet and Cloud Voice to all our employees homes. We know they’ll be supported by OptaNet and there has been no negative impact on our service levels or productivity.
