It's a common misconception that data hackers only target large companies with high turnovers and, therefore, your small supply chain business is unlikely to be affected. In reality, this is simply not the case. The statistics show that over two-thirds of data breaches target businesses with fewer than 100 employees. When you consider this alongside the fact that, on average, cyber attacks cost these companies around $36,000, the risks aren't worth it.

While call center managers have always had a difficult job to do - juggling the needs of customers, the requirements of upper management and the issues of call center employees - there are some problems that are more modern than others.

Many businesses and organizations have found the cost of telecommunications spiking in recent years, particularly if they rely on legacy equipment and service. Long-distance phone calls - so easy to make on our mobile phones - still cost and arm and a leg with traditional telephone service.

For many companies, switching to a voice over IP system has been a godsend: it allows them to add features while bringing down the cost of telecom, and enables companies to work in a virtual office environment in which remote and home-based workers can use the same phone and conferencing systems.
