Cloud-based integrated voice and video voice services are popular platforms for businesses to manage their communications services. Cloud services allow remote employees to use the same phone system as office-based workers. With the rise of home-based workers, these services are growing and experiencing growing pains in some instances.
According to Gartner, “By 2022, 74% of organizations will move at least 5% of their normally full-time, on-site workers, who had switched to working from home temporarily, into permanent remote-working positions.”
