Beating the weather -Taking your office space home with you
Virtual office space and remote access software have allowed a large number of SMEΓÇÖs to overcome the wintery weather that has wreaked havoc on UK businesses during the last few weeks, particularly those dependent upon their staffs ability to commute to a fixed office location.
The adoption of technology like Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and remote access software such as gotomypc.com have offered businesses the chance to maintain productivity, despite the onslaught of the cold weather here in the UK.
With an estimated 1 in 10 ( BBC News ) employees unable or unwilling to attend work due to the weather and an estimated cost to the economy of ┬ú690m per day, utilising such technology must clearly be worth considering to overcome such disruptions.
Another solution would be to choose an office space located close to major transport links, priorities for the highway agency and local authorities, in order to reduce the chance of disruption as much as possible.
