Being Green - how your communications can help you with your green agenda!
Tuesday, August 21, 2018
Have you ever wondered how your business solutions can help to reduce your carbon footprint and conserve precious resources? If you’re looking to underpin your environmental policy to help with green credentials here’s a few handy hints:
Burn less fuel
Conferencing solutions provide a green alternative to business travel. A wide variety of meetings can be conducted using audio conferencing, which can include the option of recording the conference for record keeping. Our IP telephony solutions now include video conferencing from your handset, PC, Mac, tablet of smartphone, so you can reduce the need to attend every meeting.
Work from home
By allowing staff to work from home where appropriate, business travel can be reduced and office resources conserved. Diamond can provide a solution for home workers, which includes business grade broadband connectivity and a separate phone line, with all charges appearing on the main bill, so expenses administration is reduced.
Hosted IP telephony solutions take this one stage further by allowing the home worker to be part of the main phone system, with access to advanced features, including short code dialling, call transfer and click to dial directories.
Save trees - billing
Produce electronic bills, which you can access through a secure web portal, hence avoiding the excessive use of paper and the need for postage and transport.
Use less power
Many organisations choose to store a lot of information on site and also run large back-up servers, which require a secure controlled environment to be maintained, therefore increasing energy consumption. We would promote managed hosting or co-location, where your data is stored in secure, dedicated facilities off-site, which means a net drop in your carbon footprint.
With emerging collaboration technologies, businesses will have the opportunity to significantly adjust the way in which they work and promote the green agenda. Against this rapidly evolving landscape, Diamond will ensure that you only adopt technology which will be a good long term fit with your business.
