Coronavirus (COVID- 19) has triggered the world’s largest work-from-home experiment. Employers look forward to opt for this option to stave off a crisis while keeping employees safe. However, not all jobs/roles are aligned to work-from-home. Especially it seems difficult for jobs like call centres to switch to work-from-home model.
Keeping this in mind, Ozonetel is offering cloud - based solutions for their clients to easily switch to Work-from-home. With the help of offline mode, the companies can temporarily switch their call centers to a work-from-home model. This entire practice can be executed without compromising on the security and privacy concerns of the businesses. For example, Acko General Insurance, took a prompt decision to move their call centers to work-from-home and Ozonetel helped them do this within a quick span of time seamlessly.
