TheDigest.com Highlights How IP Fax Solutions Can Help Businesses Go Green
By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor
TheDigest.com has released the top three ways in which a VoIP system – including IP fax solutions -- can help businesses go green.
TheDigest.com, which provides a business digest of easy to understand information for owners, managers, and employees who want to make the best decisions for their business by choosing the right products and services for them, said that VoIP provides businesses with lots of options in mobility, which allow employees to work remotely with access to their business’s phone system.
Several VoIP providers feature virtual extensions, which connect the employees’ business VoIP numbers with their cell phones. This option eliminates the need for desk phones and lets employees work from anywhere. Employees can program other phones to ring when a caller dials their business VoIP number. With this feature, an employee could receive business calls outside of the office on a landline or mobile device.
Numerous VoIP providers now offer mobile VoIP apps for smartphone users. Employees can log into their VoIP accounts on their mobile devices and then send and receive their business VoIP calls as usual.
TheDigest.com said that whether a business hires employees to work from home or initiates green efforts such as “work from home Fridays,” employees can access their VoIP business numbers without leaving their homes.
Thanks to this, employees can significantly cut down on their carbon emissions, and additionally, if these employees are not on-site, business owners can cut down on electricity, gas, and water usage in the office as well.
The second way in which which a VoIP system can help businesses go green is video conferences.
VoIP providers feature video conferencing options, which can help encourage employees to work remotely. Businesses that have multiple remote employees working around the world need to have excellent means of communication. However, when employees travel by plane or car to attend meetings, they’re releasing toxic greenhouse gases into the environment.
VoIP video conferencing can help employees touch base, and see “face to face” on a virtual platform, without involving a gas guzzling vehicle.
The last but not the least is IP Faxes.
Businesses can also implement IP faxing as another green solution in the office. While employees can still send IP faxes to traditional fax machines, they can also send and receive faxes in their e-mail inboxes. Sending the fax over the Internet can help to eliminate wasted supplies such as paper and ink.
