Virtual PBXs make it easier to work from your cabin, a working model increasingly used by companies. Indeed, working from a log cabin, also called teleworking, allows greater flexibility and mobility for all employees.
These working methods encourage work-life balance, making workers feel more motivated and happy to work.
But telework is not only good for employees, but also for the company as a whole, especially in terms of location costs.
To what extent do virtual PBXs favour telework? What are the advantages of choosing a virtual communications solution for the company?
Teleworking is a working model that attracts more and more people, but also more and more managers. It is a working model that is slowly becoming standardised and yet has great advantages that many are probably still unaware of.
With the internet and the evolution of new technologies, very few jobs require physical presence in one place. Currently, most jobs are done via the internet with any connected device, such as a mobile phone, computer, etc.
Thus, working from a log cabin (or from anywhere) is facilitated by new technologies, such as the use of WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) in virtual PBXs of companies.
A virtual PBX that works with WebRTC simply requires internet access for its operation: transmission of voice, video or data. Therefore, in this day and age, this technology clearly replaces the traditional PBXs with virtual ones with WebRTC, allowing you to make and receive calls from your mobile phone, computer or any other device connected to the internet.
Until now, traditional telephone PBXs worked with SIP protocol. However, these have demonstrated their great limitations for business communications, such as protocol restrictions and the difficulty of integrating other devices for receiving and sending calls, such as smartphones or computers.
