SMEs Still Need VOIP Phone Systems Despite Return To Office

After most people were forced to work from home during the pandemic, it was thought remote working could be the future. 

However, more companies are calling for employees to come back into the office full-time. Despite this, there is still a need for home working technology, including VOIP phone systems.  

A recent KPMG CEO Outlook survey revealed two-thirds of business leaders in the UK predict there will be a full return to in-office working by 2026, the Guardian reported

As much as 83 per cent think office attendance is linked with promotion opportunities and financial rewards, which is why workers will be keen to join their colleagues in returning full time. 

This comes after large companies, including Meta and Amazon, have been trying to encourage their staff to come back into the office, as they believe it boosts creativity and productivity. 

However, this could be a hard sell for millions of workers, who have enjoyed the freedom and flexibility of working from home, either part-time or full-time, over the last three and a half years. 

Some people no longer live close enough to their office for a realistic commute, while others, such as parents or carers, have been able to juggle their other responsibilities around their working day by being at home. 

Therefore, while big companies believe workers should be office-based, there is still a need for remote working technology for employees who are unable to travel, and those who have appointments and cannot make face-to-face meetings.  

They also enable teams in different locations to hold meetings together, which allows businesses to expand internationally. 

Furthermore, VOIP systems mean staff who cannot be in the office for work-related reasons, such as they are travelling to see a client, can still attend meetings and keep up to date with everything.

    Backing up is VITAL!

    Backing up should be everyones top priority. All too often we see businesses decide to start backing up the wrong side of a costly hard drive disaster or data breach.

    With viruses and malware now capable of causing so much, often irreversible, damage, a substantial backup is imperative. If you’re infected with ransomware, a recent backup often the only way to get you back up and running.

    Why offsite backup and not a removable hard drive?

    Preferably both! But never just a hard drive. Why? Hard drives can fail. It’s as simple as that. Ransomware infections can also creep onto hard drives if they’re left plugged into an infected machine. 

    ​SYS3 use the most reliable and intelligent backup solutions on the market to ensure that our customers’ data is kept secure.

    Why buy your hardware from SYS3?

    Years ago, SYS3 started out by building and supplying custom computer hardware. We know our stuff.

    We keep up with the latest in technology so we are able to provide our customers with the best possible equipment without breaking the bank. Whether you need a new server, laptop, printer or network switch, we’ll always provide you with a variety of options and recommendations to suit your business needs.

    The more advanced technology becomes, the more advanced the bad guys become. Gone are the days when attackers were easy to spot in a badly worded email.

    ​Did you know you can get an infection just by hovering your mouse over a dodgy website banner? Worse? Traditional antivirus products cannot protect you against everything.

    ​Human error is still largely responsible for infections and viruses but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the best protection possible to safeguard your employees and ultimately, your business.

    ​Partnered with Heimdal, SYS3 provide market-leading protection that is proactive, not reactive like traditional antivirus.


    Spam email makes up 70% of ALL email traffic across the world and social engineering means scammers can directly target key employees. Is your job title on social media?

    Over 60% of breaches are caused by human error. Are you confident that your staff are fully trained to spot email-borne threats and avoid falling victim?

    How SYS3 can help

    Just one click has the potential to grind your entire business to a halt and generate a costly bill to put right. What makes things worse is that email viruses are now incredibly clever, highly convincing, and can be very difficult to spot.

    ​Our priority is to make sure our customers are supported and protected as much as possible. 99% of our customers have adopted our mail filtering service and it comes highly recommended. It’s the first line of defence and a vital tool.
