As we know coronavirus is spreading globally at a rapid rate. It has been reported by media such as newspapers, TV, radios that most of the established brands, SMBs, and startups industries are being affected by COVID19 across the world. And in India, many non-IT organizations have no clue about the situation, how the Covid-19 pandemic will affect the business. The way it is increasing, it looks like Indian enterprises especially non-IT SMBs and Startups will struggle to deal with COVID19 circumstances.
Globally, many organizations have adopted work from home or remote working concepts to avoid this situation. But, as per Gartner report, In India, 54% of organizations do not have sufficient technology and resources that can help them to overcome this situation. But still, there is a way for companies that remote working ideas will reduce the coronavirus’s effect on business productivity.
Let me tell you that remote working technology is a part of unified communications as a service (UCaaS). It’s not very expensive, any type of business whether a brand, SMBs or Startups can choose the unified communications based technology. This technology has powerful features that enable users to work from anywhere at any time. It helps enterprises to collaborate with employees of various departments, with customers in an effective and efficient manner.
If you have used a unified communication solution, COVID 19 will have less impact on your business. It has multiple features that can centralize your business communication in a hub easily. Let understand its features more deeply:
Audio Conferencing Feature: Its objective is to enhance business communication and collaboration between enterprises, employees and customers. The automation software enables two or more users located in different places to collaborate and communicate.
Video/Web Conferencing: Video conferencing is a modern technology that SMBs and startups can use to increase business efficiency. It will allow companies to make video and audio call transmission in real-time that will improve business communications and collaboration simultaneously. It will also help organizations to minimize the traveling cost of employees.
Instant Messaging For Business: Unified Communication allows users to send and receive text messages without delay through online chats just like WhatsApp, Google Hangout, Facebook Messenger. It will reduce the communication gap between team members and improve business productivity.
File-Sharing: UCaaS based software also has file-sharing capabilities. It allows users to send and receive files anywhere. Flexibility to send files in any format such as .doc, .pdf, etc. makes it more impressive. When you send a file, it will convert your file into an encrypted code that makes your information more secure.
Many organizations have taken several measures to tackle the COVID19 situation. But, in my opinion, remote working is an appropriate way to run a business smoothly and keep your business away from the effect of the coronavirus epidemic.
