Opting to use a virtual office setup has been a craze for small to medium sized businesses for a number of years now. The obvious benefits that attract business owners is a reduced need for office space, a flexible family friendly work environment, better business continuity arrangements, wider geographic coverage to name but a few.
Communications play an important role in any virtual office environment, a simple telephone system will be able to provide some of that, but what about access to emails, calendars, office documents, plus some of the more social oriented requirements like access to company wide updates, effective teamworking, getting quick answers to short questions etc.
