Mobile Workforce Enabled

More and more, your competitors are putting their best people in the field with the ability to execute the same, if not better, technological capabilities than they had at the office. Are you following suit?

There is a growing trend that your field team members, especially salespeople, need to be out of the office to do their job best. However, they also need to be kept up-to-date about things that are going on at the office such as important business meetings, projects and sales leads.  

Allied Communication works with you to tailor solutions to provide you the best of both of these worlds. Here are just a few of the benefits:

- Choose your device - or devices: Your sales team is likely wanting to use tablets since they are much more mobile. With hosted desktop apps, this is easier than ever.  Your data is accessible from any device - laptop, tablet, or smartphone, but your data remains secure. Your data is displayed on the device, not copied to it. If a device is lost or broken, your data is still easily retrievable and just how you left it, safe in the Cloud while remaining inaccessible to anyone else. Data is more up-to-date and orders can be processed faster. This means that sale teams have better info to work with and your cash flow will be improved.

This is just a small sampling of what a mobile-enabled workforce can do for you. Keep reading to learn more.

Mobile Workforce means that you want your remote workers to feel just as connected as if they were in the building sitting in the office right next to you. Cloud based technologies such as Desktop as a Service, Hosted VoIP and Unified Communcations make this possible. Sure, you can't walk over to their office, and talk to them in person - but how about a quick video chat? Unified Communications does that and more. 

Hosted VoIP Benefits: Hosted VoIP works by sending your voice calls over the internet, rather than the old fashioned telephone network - but have no fear, you can still call anyone you need to - even if they aren't using VoIP. So why is VoIP a good thing?

• Communications are easily unified between multiple locations

• Avoid tech obsolescence – updates are done in the Cloud

• Automated attendant and voicemail in the Cloud – unified across locations and devices

• Disaster recovery/Business Continuity built in

• Designed for Mobility

Soft Phone Apps: Workers in the field need to stay in touch and be accessible. A soft phone app allows your smartphone to act just like your office phone, anywhere you have a data connection be it 3G, LTE or Wifi.

Unified Communications Benefits: Unified Communications ties Voice, Video, Instant Messaging, Presence Info, Collaboration tools, and E-mail all into one unified package

• Apps for your laptop, tablet, or smartphone ties all of your communications together seamlessly, whether in the office or not

• In the field and need to set up a quick consult with someone back at the office? Check their Presence to see if they are available, and instantly connect with them via voice, text, or video if they are, or send them a request to get in touch with you if they are on the phone

• Need to collaborate on a document with someone back at the office? Built in collaboration tools make that easy - no matter where you are

Desktop Benefits: Cloud-powered desktops give your remote or mobile workers the opportunity to use their computers just as if they were sitting at their desk. Here are the just a few of main benefits:

• They are able to access their desktop on any internet-connected device and switch between devices on the fly.

• Almost everyone has a tablet - so why buy one for an employee that already has one? Cloud-powered desktops makes allowing employees to "Bring Their Own Device" easy and secure.

• If something happens to the device in the field, your data is safe and secure in the Cloud. No data is actually transferred to the device, so damage or theft won't impact the intergrity of your data.

Small businesses can run into a multitude of issues when it comes to information technology (IT). Issues that pop up frequently are things such as data security, licensing requirements, server maintenance, virus protection, disaster recovery, etc.

So who does all that at your company? The answer, for some of those issues, no one. For the rest, it may be an employee that is “good with computers,” a contracted IT company, on-site IT or the boss.

Unified Communications

Traditional Wired Voice services are complex. Whether your lines are wired directly to your phones, or you have PBX system that requires complex programming and maintenance. Scalability is an issue if you don't have a PBX, but a PBX is expensive, and can bring your company to it's knees if it fails. You are trying to run your business at the speed of now, can your phones keep up?

About Roadmap to the Cloud

We're established business communication specialists dedicated to finding optimal business solutions. 

Allied Communication was founded in 2001 by two former US West employees who thought that they could do a better job of providing customer service than the big telecommunication companies.

Our experienced staff of sales representatives and project managers works with our customers, large and small, local or distant, to tailor solutions that meet their Cloud Computing, Telecommunication, and Internet Connectivity needs, with the provider that works best for them.

We are a Cloud Computing and Telecommunications broker, and are paid a commission by the providers.We do not charge our customers for any of our services. As a broker we are able to look at offerings from many different companies to find the right match for your business. As a customer, you never pay us for our services, and you never sign a contract with Allied Communication.

We use our provider relationships to ensure that you get a price that is just as good, or lower than you could get going to the provider directly. Because we work with many providers we are able to leverage competing quotes against each other to provide the best pricing for our customers.

We understand that entrusting your data to a third party is a big deal. We only work with enterprise level suppliers, many of whom are listed in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant of Cloud providers.  These aren’t small independent companies with a server in the basement or the garage, and calling themselves Cloud providers. Our providers run state of the art data centers, with secure access, and staffed with IT and security experts to ensure the accessibility and security of your data.

These data centers are in buildings that are designed to withstand severe weather, including hurricane force winds. They are hardened facilities with ballistic-proof exteriors, including all doors and windows.  Entrances require badges or feature secure entrances with 24 hour physical security, along with camera monitoring of all door positions and badge access areas.
