5 Benefits of Home Phone for Remote Workers

June 3, 2022 Category: Residential Services

As remote work continues to remain popular through the latest phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, having a reliable Voice service is high priority for many. If you handle many calls throughout your workday, you are going to want a Phone connection that delivers results. We explored some of the benefits of having Home Phone services if you are a remote worker!

1. Superior Sound and Quality

Having Home Phone service will improve the quality of the calls you need to make for your job. A convenient set up will enhance your work-from-home experience! Consumer reports found that quality on a cordless home phone was better than any cellular device. We find that Home Phones provides a crisper and clearer sound than cell service.  Additionally, Home Phone services are more reliable than cellular services in hard to reach areas of the home like a basement office or a garage.

2. Expanded Calling Areas and Features

With our Phone service, you get these awesome features included in your plan:

  • Call display – The callers name and number is displayed while the phone is ringing.
  • Call waiting – Alerts you to an incoming call when you are already on another call.
  • Call forwarding – Forward all incoming calls to another number.
  • Speed calling – Use short codes to call frequently used numbers.
  • Automatic recall – Announces the last incoming phone number with an option to call it.
  • Selective call rejection – Reject incoming calls from up to 10 selected phone numbers.
  • 3-way calling – Call two numbers and conduct simultaneous conversations with both parties.

If you are interested in adding more features to your plan like voicemail and call transfer we have a variety of calling features available for an affordable price.

Certain towns may qualify as one of our Expanded Local Calling Areas, which makes a call that would normally be long distance be local instead! We have local calling areas available for Ailsa Craig, Arkona, Forest, Ilderton, Parkhill, Port Franks/Ipperwash, Thedford, Watford, Delhi, Langton, Port Dover, Port Rowan and St. Williams.

3. There for You During Emergencies

In emergencies, 911 operators are able to quickly track a call from landline services, whereas on a cellphone they are only able to track to the nearest cell tower.  The added security of a Home Phone service is beneficial in those worst-case scenarios.

4. Bundle for Affordable Service

At Execulink, and many other telecommunication providers, there is a financial benefit to bundling your Internet, TV, and Phone services. We want to provide you with an affordable option so we offer discounts when you add more than one service. For our most up-to-date pricing check out our dedicated bundles page to learn more about our Internet, TV, and Phone bundles.

5. Reliability

Home Phone services are historically more stable than cell service. VoIP service (Voice over Internet Protocol) is reliable. As long as you have a high-speed Internet connection, you’ll experience high-quality voice calls with reliable connection uptime. You can boost this uptime by making sure you have a backup power source in case of power outages. Having this peace of mind when you are a remote worker is priceless; you want to avoid the hassle and inconvenience that comes with downtime at all costs.

Bonus – Solutions for Business Owners

There are also several voice options for Businesses with a remote workforce. There is Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams, which will turn your Teams environment into a business phone system with enterprise-grade voice capabilities. You have the ability to make and receive calls from your Teams app, on any device, from anywhere.

A Hosted Phone solution will also allow you to be in all places at once and take your business with you. You can customize your call flow and replicate a dynamic office environment from your mobile phone. You have the ability to connect multiple offices and function as a single organization, even when the offices are separated geographically. Transfer calls to and from home offices with ease without making your customers dial separate numbers. Alternatively, direct-dial numbers can be set up for each employee without the added cost of purchasing additional telephone lines. Calls are managed as if all of your employees are in the same physical location.

Overall, there are many benefits to using Home Phone service if you are a remote worker. Having a strong Phone connection allows you to connect reliably with co-workers and clients.
