Buzzbox Lets Employees Work From Home Without Leaving Their Desk

The company buzzbox has introduced a new office telephone system that allows employers to extend their telephone switchboard worldwide so that employees are connected to their desk phone even when they’re out of the office. By allowing staff to carry the office land-line with them on their Android or iPhone, they can be permanently connected to head office with completely free phone calls.

“The land-line has been stuck in the dark ages for years”, says buzzbox founder Stuart Spice. “By marrying the internet with your desk phone, you’re opening up a world of possibilities that drags Alexander Bell’s invention well into the 21st century”.

buzzbox is a simple device that sits in the office and plugs directly into your broadband connection creating a switchboard that sits on the internet. Staff then install the buzzbox app on their mobile device which connects them to the switchboard back at the office. Dialing their extension or land-line number will ring their mobile device for free.

“It’s not just about making phone calls”, continues Stuart. “Improving staff productivity by allowing them to work from home while being able to track their activity is invaluable in today’s cash strapped climate. You’re cutting costs, improving staff work/life balance plus you can actually see what's going on” he continues.

Research suggests that more and more employers are offering teleworking options to their staff. Up to 59% of employers were offering teleworking in 2011, compared to 13% in 2006*. “With such a radical shift in employment policy, it’s important to be prepared with an infrastructure that can handle this increasing trend.” Stuart says.

But the rapid adoption of teleworking needn't mean extra expense, especially given the current economic climate. buzzbox customers have reported savings of over 75% on their phone bills because dialing remote staff on their extension number doesn't cost a penny, regardless of their physical location and international calls cost only a few pence. Because buzzbox uses your broadband connection, there is no line rental either.

buzzbox is already being used by companies with remote staff in South America, India and Europe as well as teleworkers and branch offices based in the UK.
