Working From Home

Working from home is proven to be financially beneficial , more and more people are choosing jobs where they can work either part time from home or entirely from home. IT-MK Limited can implement, maintain and configure Virtual Private Networks (VPN) and Distributed Phone Systems using Voice over IP (VoIP) technology. This will give your business a competitive edge.

Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology has enabled many people to work from home, this is the ability to connect to a private network securely using a public network such as the Internet as a transport medium. Essentially creating a tunnel between the remote workers house and their office, this allows them to interact with company data, check e-mail as if they were sitting at their desk, the reality can literally be that they are accessing this information from the other side of the world. This same technology can be used to link up many branch offices, so that in effect they become a single geographically distributed wide area network, allowing teams of people across the globe to collaborate together in ways that were simply not possible a few years ago.

VPN technology in conjunction with a distributed phone systems provides most of the office features in remote locations. Distributed Phone Systems work using VoIP technology, again connecting to a central base via the Internet. This enables all calls to come into a central switchboard, and be directed to people who could be on the other side of the globe, as if they were sitting at the next desk. It also enables remote workers to answer incoming calls again as if they were in the office. Imagine the freedom of being able to take your office phone home and have it function in exactly the same way it does in your office, you can see who is on the phone, talk "internally" to people, pick up external calls, and take advantage of LCR (least cost routing) all from the comfort of your home office.
