Lockdown 2.0 - Helping You Work From Home

1. Phone Calls

Getting calls to your home workers can be difficult and depends on the type of phone system and lines you have. We have a range of solutions to suit every requirement and budget, covering simple call divert options through to fully hosted cloud PBX solutions.

2. Connectivity

The UK broadband and mobile network continues to hold up well despite the significant increase in daily usage. Some of your users may be struggling with slow line speeds or contention with other family members. Openreach engineers continue to service installations, but this may not last if lockdown is prolonged.

3. ICT Support


In the last lockdown we found that supporting remote users adds additional pressure on your in-house ICT people, so we released a number of support options so that we can help you bear the load.

4. Protecting Your Data

Having a widely dispersed workforce with access to key systems, possibly using home equipment, increases your risks significantly. We have a range  of services  to help ensure you are protected from the increased hacking activity focused on remote workers.

5. Looking After Your People

Working from home on a prolonged basis has many advantages, however, it is widely accepted that we all have to work harder to look after the mental wellbeing of our home workers. In a way a new lockdown will be more challenging than the first one, as it removes some of the hope that was building that we were through the worst of the situation.
