The Virtual Business: The New Age of Cloud Communications

by Phone.com

brighttalkMore and more companies are moving away from a centralized physical structure and allowing employees to work from home or remotely when traveling on business. In 2013, there were an estimated 28 million small businesses in the United States. These businesses have generated over 65 percent of net new jobs since 1995.

So how do small businesses or, for that matter, businesses of any size keep up with competition in the US and abroad? One way is to incorporate virtual-business strategies and employ some of the rapidly evolving technologies that fall under the umbrella of cloud communications.

On Wednesday, February 26, at 11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET, Joel Maloff (VP, Channel Development) and Aaron Rosenthal (API Product Manager) at Phone.com will host a webinar in conjunction with BrightTalk.  They will discuss the ways cloud communications might make sense for your business.  Some of the topics they will be tackling include:

  • Telecommuting: Ways employees can work from home or in transit, yet appear as if they are working from the office.
  • Be Local, Act Global: The ability to expand into new markets and countries without having to expand your number of office locations.
  • Contingency Planning: How a virtual business can be more resilient when natural or man-made disruptions to business occur.
