Three ways your business can prepare against coronavirus with work-from-home solutions

As fears of a global pandemic grow, be prepared to support your office from anywhere.

COVID-19, a strain of coronavirus, has killed more than 3,000 people and infected 90,000+ in over 40 countries, according to a Johns Hopkins tracker. The virus, which originated in Wuhan, China, is disrupting businesses, schools, conferences and everyday life across the world. More precautions are being taken, including a push for more people to work remotely while health organizations work to treat and contain the virus.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging citizens to ask their schools and workplaces about contingency plans, like working from home, in case they need to shut down due to coronavirus. 

Is your business prepared? 

Tressy Leindecker, VP of Sales and Marketing at EATEL Business, outlines three ways you can prepare your employees to work remotely: 

Hosted Phone
This service pairs your desk phone to your mobile phone, tablet or desktop PC. You can be reached anywhere, all through one number. This service can also include features like conference calling, voicemail, chat, and integrated contacts. 

Online Meetings
Conduct face-to-face meetings, chat, share your desktops, applications, and whiteboard with anyone, anywhere, anytime. 

Business Backup and Recovery
Make sure your data is backed up at all times. 

“In light of the coronavirus, it just makes good business sense to be equipped with remote workforce tools,” says Leindecker. “Whether it’s a hurricane, a flood or a virus set to reach pandemic proportions, business never stops. Whether you’re in the living room or the board room, EATEL Business has the tools you need to be successful.”
