An example of the power of Business Anywhere: We recently had a client who had an executive traveling abroad to Brazil. The question, how can the business executive remain in contact with his business and clients while out of the country and at a controllable cost? He did it for no cost.
The Answer, Business Anywhere. The client leverages a hosted PBX and utilizes a Softphone. For those of you who aren’t familiar with a Softphone, it is an application that is a two-line SIP phone that runs virtually on any device: Laptop, PC, Tablet (iPad or Droid) and many Smart phones. The beauty of the softphone is that your corporate number (direct inward dial or DID) number is with you wherever you go. You can make and receive calls on any of your devices but utilize your corporate VoIP hosted PBX.
SO our client while in Brazil, from his laptop and his Droid Smartphone was able to make calls back to the United States utilizing data and Internet and did not use cell minutes or pay International rates. He could even 4 digit dial associates in his office as if he were sitting literally right down the hall.
This is an example of how Business Anywhere can enhance how you do business and streamline communication between you, your clients, your vendors and your company all while minimizing or eliminating the cost of doing business.
