Incorporate homeworkers in your standard billing
Most UK businesses have a number of staff who regularly work away from the office as part of their work for the firm. To keep these workers connected, we offer a range of services that make life easy for remote staff
Working environments are becoming ever more mobile, staff aren’t just “in” or “out”.
Workers can operate and communicate effectively whilst away from the offices, and their associated costs can be kept low and integrated easily into the company telephone bill.
Staff can easily work from home using their existing telephone lines, eliminating additional installation and rental costs. Call costs are charged directly to your business telephone account, with full activity logs and no need to claim back costs via expenses.
Install dedicated phone lines and internet services within your staff homes, include costs in your single company bill with a detailed breakdown of each homeworker and call activity logs.
