Will Software as a Service allow more people to work from home?
During the last ten years, the work world has changed; many more people are working from home. High rent for office space, sometimes-unreliable transportation systems and the widespread availability of high-speed Internet has made telecommuting a big part of the work environment. With conventional phone and office systems, working from home involved logging into a centrally located server, or carrying files on your laptop. Work from home used to be a luxury, but thanks to software as a service, telecommuting is within the reach of everyone.
Software as a service (SAAS) is also known as cloud computing, and it's revolutionizing how we use and see information technology. For instance, using cloud desktops will allow you and your workers to log onto their work desktop from anywhere they have internet access- it will be just as if they are working in the office. There are even options for cloud telephony, allowing workers to log into their extension and transfer calls, answer voicemails and taking part in teleconferences.
Software as as service gives home workers the flexibility they need to do their jobs, whenever and wherever they want. It's ideal for those who work part time, or for stay at home working parents who want to supplement the household finances. Being able to work from home improves the morale of staff and allows them to balance work and home life; it's required by law that employers seriously consider flex time for those with children under 16. No matter why a person wants to work from home, software as a service allows them to do it more easily and efficiently.
