A recent survey has found that there are more solutions to high fuel cost issues than it seems at first glance. It was conducted with 120 small and medium-sized enterprises, which were asked how they tried to manage the effects of the global credit crunch and fight for survival in the very threatening today’s business environment.
The survey elicited some very interesting results, such as:
- changing working hours depending on the daylight saving time to cut electricity costs
- using small font for printouts to reduce stationery expenses
- reducing office premises and introducing home working and hotdesking
One noticeable trend is the preference of both business owners and employees to work remotely and thus do away with the daily need to take long car trips to and from work. The home working practice is facilitated by modern affordable business solutions, such as special corporate instant messengers (like Brosix Enterprise Instant Messenger) that offer both absolute information security and a wide range of options that make communication easier and more efficient despite the great distances. It seems that the Internet will, afterward, point to the solution of today’s biggest problem of business. Products such as Brosix are just the beginning – it combines the traditional features of free public messengers with additional extras such as Voice Chat, Video Chat, File Transfer, Co-Browse, Whiteboard, Screenshot, Screen Sharing, Voice Mail, Voice Conference to make business communication easier and less expensive than ever.
