Amid a global pandemic, we have gotten used to working from home! Remote working has meant businesses need to revisit their telecommunication systems to ensure staff are able to maintain the same level of productivity and delivery as they did from the office.

With more businesses now embracing a flexible working environment, ensuring you have the best workplace telecommunication tool in place for your business is more important than ever.

At Strategic Group, we’ve come to trust a number of modern, unified communication tools ourselves and recommend them to our clients to improve their efficiencies.

They provide an all-in-one telecommunication solution that uses the power of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) to integrate voice, messaging and video conferencing technologies into one platform.

It streamlines communications over any device, in any location, to make working anywhere in the world simple.

Here are a few of our recommended platforms for unified communications.

To help get the best result for your business, it’s important to ensure your system is tailored to your unique needs.
