Frost and Sullivan have reported that remote workers are increasingly utilising technologies such as video and audio conferencing units, wireless headsets and voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) phones to communicate with their central offices. Research Analyst Alaa Saayed comments:

"The need for enhanced communications is resulting in the creation of a series of communication tools and devices that are helping the employee to efficiently perform his/her job at any location and on the go."

It is predicted that despite the well -documented economic downturn, more and more businesses will to turn to the range of remote worker solutions that are now at their disposal. Big Box Distribution are one of the U.K's leading suppliers of such equipment. Director Gary Basso commented on these reports saying:

"Many organisations will be forced to make cutbacks at the moment, but this shouldn't be at the expense of workers. By equipping staff with equipment such as wireless headsets and conferencing units, organisations can enable workers to work more productively and efficiently."

"Although purchasing new telecoms equipment may represent a financial outlay, the cost savings and rise in worker productivity it can lead to makes it a worthwhile investment. As more and more companies are investing in remote worker solutions, it is vital that your business reviews its own equipment in order to keep ahead of your competition."
