Anywhere access is the cornerstone of the virtual office and paves the way for entirely mobile workforces.
And, according to TMCNet contributor Charles West, it’s not just the office space that is being revolutionised by the uptake of virtual office technology.
The industry expert claims businesses that rely on people working at a plethora of locations can make previously-impossible tasks a doddle.
“With hosted solutions, you benefit from ‘Anywhere Access’, meaning that you can access your email, voicemail and documents from anywhere with an internet connection – enabling workers to be as mobile as they need to be,” Mr West said.
He added that another major benefit of virtual office solutions is their ability to be modified and adapted, allowing different levels of access for different members of staff.
Mr West also noted that virtual office solutions do away with the need for vast amounts of pre-planning for disasters – like the recent deluge of snow and ice in the UK.
A recent survey from Demon noted that 80 per cent of Brits worked from home last Christmas.
