What is this all about?
As you are here, you must have seen our advertisement campaign in the Metro, and are interested in finding out more about the possibility of working from home.
What do we mean by ‘Work from home’?
What we mean by working from home is carrying out your current, office-bound duties at home.
Obviously, this means that the job you do will pretty much dictate whether or not you can work from home; for instance, if you are a barista in a coffee shop, then you probably won’t be able to work from home. However, if you work in marketing for an insurance company, there is a good chance that you can work from home for at least part of the week.
Tell me more
We will try to tell you in as few words as possible, why working from home is a growing practice across the country, and particularly in the South East, where 1 in 5 people work from home*
The increase in this practice is largely due to two factors:
How is this possible?
In case you don't know what Broadband is or does it allows rapid access to the internet by the use of existing, standard telephone lines, that nearly all of us have installed. This is facilitated by using something called aDSL (asynchronous Digital Subscriber Line) – this allows large quantities of data to be transmitted up and down the line, without even making a call (‘always on'). The data rate down (TO your house) is generally much greater than the data rate up (FROM your house) – hence ‘asynchronous'.
VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol and is also known by many other names including IP Telephony. Internet Protocol is shorthand for a transmission standard used to transmit information between computers – in this instance, between workstations in your common-or-garden office. The Voice part is exactly what it says; speech is converted into data ‘packets' and transmitted just like an email and rebuilt at the receiving end. The actual process is pretty complex and clever, but there is no need to go into detail about this – if you would like to know more, have a look at this sitehttp://communication.howstuffworks.com/ip-telephony.htm
which explains the theory in simple terms (the best way, we think).
What equipment is needed to do this?
So, when we combine these two technologies we can help you to work from home, all you need is:
Back at the office, a telephone system is required which supports VoIP; this may be possible on the existing system, the best way to find this out is to let us provide a free site survey to assess the situation (no obligation, of course).
