For businesses of all sizes, remote and multi-location settings are more common than ever â€” and the trend is still growing. One reason: working remotely is not only a coveted benefit for workers, it's also been shown to boost productivity and collaboration by making sure that workers always have the key tools and co-worker access they need to do their jobs, wherever anyone may happen to be.
That's not all. Barry's services for multisite offices can significantly reduce your monthly communications cost, even as you add important functionalities. You can have one central phone number, receive one single phone bill for all locations, and have the ability to seamlessly transfer calls among locations. Plus, all outgoing calls show up on Caller ID as coming from your main business name and phone number, no matter where the caller actually is and what phone they're using.
The enormous benefits of multisite office systems become even greater during emergencies or relocations. If your office becomes unavailable or employees are relocated or unable to make it into the office, you can instantly re-route all incoming phone calls or simply move the phone system while keeping your same phone number. It's all totally transparent to anyone making or receiving calls from you.
It's no longer only giant corporations that have multiple offices. Barry offers systems that have the potential to make significant gains in the productivity, accessibility and control of remote offices. We can enable all your offices to function as one in many key ways, and let staff at all locations work seamlessly with team members at any other location or multiple locations.
Working from Home
With VoIP from Barry, big-office phone and connectivity features are within reach of any business. Even employees in home offices can work from home while still being able to take advantage of call transferring, conferencing, forwarding, extension dialing, viewing live presence, voicemail, and all the other essential business phone features provided by IP-PBX systems.
Working on the Road
From salespeople to traveling managers and executives, any worker can now be more productive on the road, thanks to VoIP. Since VoIP systems don't care where a physical phone is, any location in the world with an Internet connection is the same as any other as far as cost and functionality. In many implementations, a salesperson in a hotel room can log in to the company network and make and receive calls exactly as if they were in their office. And managers and executives can work from the road as easily as from their offices, to the benefit of them and everyone who works with them.
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
VPN brings you even closer connectivity regardless of location. With VPN, any employee can be seamlessly integrated into the main phone system, no matter what type of device they are using or where they are. For remote workers, this heightened sense of connectivity is both a powerful tool and a way for the business to ensure they are in touch, informed and motivated.
Auto Call Routing
Wouldn't it be great if all yours call came straight to whichever phone you had nearest at hand? And great if colleagues were easier to reach because they had the same service? With auto call routing, it's all possible. You simply tell the network which phone is your preferred phone at the moment, and all calls are automatically routed to that phone â€” no need to set up forwarding rules or reassign numbers. You can direct all calls to one of your phones or to another desk, personal assistant or team member covering for you. And you decide which phone lines are included. For corporate trainers, IT staff, and other employees who routinely visit multiple offices, auto call routing represents a tremendous leap in productivity.
