Many of today’s businesses have partially, if not completely, shifted to using remote workforce solutions to tackle traditional workplace problems such as high overhead costs, low employee morale, and tiring commutes.
If you’re looking to switch to a remote workforce but don’t know how to start, BEMA is here to help! We offer a wide range of IT solutions to provide a smooth, efficient, and cost-effective transition to remote work.
With BEMA, you can enjoy a remote workforce tailored to give your business an edge in the digital marketplace. We have worked in various industries and know exactly how to create a remote workforce plan that best suits your organization’s needs.
Remote work technology allows your business to operate entirely on a virtual platform. You can run your business, oversee remote employees, and troubleshoot issues all from the comfort of your personal devices with remote access.
Here are a few specific examples of remote workforce solutions:
At BEMA, we offer both on-site PBX (Private Branch Exchange) and fully-hosted PBX. Clients can determine which program works for their operations. If you have a large remote team that handles a high volume of client calls, an on-site PBX allows your team to collaborate and communicate without worrying about call traffic.
For smaller offices without IT capacity, fully-hosted PBX is a great solution. You won’t need to worry about needing space for equipment or infrastructure. IT personnel will handle hosting the PBX system at our central offices so that your remote team can still work smoothly.
Our clients can choose from three telecommuting programs: Microsoft Teams, Sangoma Switchvox, or 3CX. Microsoft Teams is one of the most popular choices with our clients since it integrates smoothly with an existing commercial Microsoft 365 program. On the other hand, 3CX is an excellent option if you’re looking for a remote telecommuting option that is more affordable and adaptable. Finally, Sangoma Switchbox provides efficient customer support and a great user interface program.
Ultimately, it will come down to which remote workforce solutions work best for your needs and budget. If you’re unsure which program to choose, our IT experts will assess your current workforce and help you find the best setup for you. Whichever remote workforce solution you prefer, you can use the application on your PC, a mobile phone app, or on a physical desktop phone. We provide the training and expertise to ensure that your remote teams know how to use these programs correctly.
1. Lower Overhead Costs
With remote workforce solutions, you’ll no longer worry about high overhead costs. You won’t need to pay rent on a commercial space to house your workers. You’ll also lessen costs for utilities such as electricity, heating and cooling, and water.
2. Real-time Communication
Our three telecommuting options allow you to communicate in real-time with your remote teams. All three programs deliver clear and lag-free voice and video, so you’ll feel like you’re speaking with your employees in person.
BEMA has worked with businesses across many different industries, and we know how to create modern remote workforce solutions suited to your particular business. No company is too big or too small for us; we can create a telecommunication system that works for your team.
4. Virtually Limitless Workforce Pool
Hiring remote workforces is easier and more efficient than traditional methods. You don’t need to confine yourself to hiring within a particular geographic location or time zone. You can hire the best talent anywhere in the world. What’s more, hiring offshore remote employees often means that you can get more affordable rates.
5. Work From Anywhere, Anytime
One of the most exciting promises that remote workforce solutions offer is the ability to work from anywhere, anytime. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, many people have switched to working from home since it is safer and more affordable. Aside from the pandemic, remote work lets people work where they feel most comfortable.
Many businesses find that remote workforce solutions offer their employees the flexibility to be more productive and happy. Here are some different types of remote workforce to consider:
Flex time – Flex time allows your remote employees to log in and out of work at their convenience. Many companies won’t dictate a strict work schedule as long the employee produces the required output.
Compressed workweek – In a compressed workweek setting, remote employees can choose how to meet their 40-hour work requirement. Instead of the traditional “Eight hours a day, five days a week,” employees can choose to work 10 hours for four days. Employees can parse out their time as they wish as long as they hit the 40-hour quota.
Job sharing – At least two employees will share the role of a full-time position. They can split the hours and the duties of the work.
Hybrid remote – In a hybrid remote setup, part of your team physically comes to work in the office while another team works remotely. The setup can be permanent or rotating.
These are only some examples of possible remote workforce solutions you can use for your business. Whether you choose from one of the solutions mentioned above or need a customized setup for your company, BEMA can help create an ideal remote workforce plan for you.
Switching from a traditional workplace setup to remote workforce solutions can be tricky, especially for large businesses.
It can be challenging to work out the logistics for remote employees when considering factors such as different time zones and varying familiarity with telecommuting programs.
