Beckett Telecom – helping you to develop your Telecoms Services

The world of telecoms is constantly changing and keeping up to date with those changes is almost a full time job! It’s often confusing for business owners and those responsible for telecoms in companies however small or large.

Beckett Telecom have over 25 years of experience in advising businesses how to make the right telecoms choices.

Here are our top 7 tips to consider for 2015

Tip No.1 – Host your network solution in a data centre

Network solutions from Data Centre locations are a real advantage for businesses and with more and more businesses using ‘in the cloud’ technologies for their IT services, the next step is to do the same thing with Telecoms.

Tip No.2 – Consider using VOIP

Voice over Internet Protocol, or (VOIP) is not new, but it may be something your business should consider. VOIP enables businesses to make phone calls over the internet, and so reduce costs or local, regional and international calls.

Is VOIP right for your business? It depends, but feel free to call us for impartial expert advice!

Tip No.3 – VPN (Virtual Private Network)

Are you considering a VPN between sites over the internet? At Beckett Telecom we advise our clients to take a good look at these cost effective solutions, when they are feasible.

VPN creates a link when a private circuit or network has not been established and can provide a quick solution when QoS is not critical.

Tip No.4 – Check you are weather proof…

Check now to ensure that you are ready for all kinds of severe weather.

The Met Office are currently predicting the worst weather for over 100 years and increased episodes of heavy rain and snow. Can you afford not to look towards business continuity?
What would happen if:

  • There was a loss of electrical power in your offices?
  • You couldn’t get into your head office because of flooding or snow?
  • Key members of staff were unable to get to work?
  • There were problems with road transport?

Could you operate remotely? Could you operation from a different location? How would you keep your customer services going? What about your sales team? How long would your clients stay loyal to you if you were not able to speak to them?

Tip No.5 – Work remotely

Companies based the UK are likely to offer remote, or home based working. In fact 55% of companies offer their employees the ability to work from home.
Most UK companies enable staff to access the corporate IT system, check email and download documents while at home.
However, like most things in life there are pros and cons and one of the most difficult problems with remote working is communication. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that your telecoms infrastructure supports this.

Tip No.6 – Keeping ahead of the competition

In todays modern world it is essential to keep ahead of the competition. Modern technologies can:

  • Save time
  • Reduce cost
  • Improve efficiency
  • Provide a better service

The trouble with technology is that it is moving so fast and ‘we don’t know, what we don’t know’. In other words we often don’t know that there is a piece of software that will reduce the time is takes to do something from an hour to 30 seconds and so we keep using the ‘old technology’, and so it is with telecoms.

Tip No.7 – Get help from experts

In business getting help from experts is essential. Whether that is marketing expertise, legal or financial expertise, or indeed telecoms expertise.
