PLANO, Texas, Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With the holiday season around the corner, Fonality wants to help workers spend more time with family and make it easier to keep businesses running while traveling. The holidays should be a cheerful season focused on family, but some workers may not feel like they have the luxury to get away from the office. According to a recent survey, Americans leave nearly half of vacation days unused.

"Work-life balance is just that – a balance act. We're not encouraging workers to burn the midnight oil over the holidays. Instead, we suggest they take advantage of tools that help them remain connected as needed while traveling and gathering with family," said Fonality chief marketing officer Jeff Valentine. "Technology has evolved such that businesses can now allow employees the flexibility afforded by unified communication tools."

During the holidays, many teams are separated by distance and circumstance, so having the tools to work remotely is crucial.

Tools for the Job
For an award-winning example of exactly this kind of power-packed UC tool, look no further than Fonality's Heads Up Display™ (HUD). HUD includes features such as HD video collaboration, screen sharing, instant messaging, and employee presence indicators. All these enable teams to communicate effectively and efficiently, regardless of location. And the HUD Mobile app makes it possible to communicate as if you were in the office from (almost) anywhere your travels take you by allowing you to:

  • Make and receive calls using your office extension and caller ID
  • Never miss a call, chat or voicemail with alerts
  • See who left messages and when with visual voicemail
  • Chat with secure instant message
  • Transition easily from the office to the road and back

Traveling is stressful enough without having to worry about whether you can reach your teammates when you need them – or whether your clients can reach you. The holidays are also prime season for customer service issues, but with Fonality's remote working solutions you can address and manage those issues on the go.
