Communication with your employees is important. There are many ways to do this, through emails and phone calls, especially. Even so, there are reasons why you should invest in commercial intercom systems. Let’s find out what they are.
Easier to Connect
Intercom systems make it easier to connect. While phone calls and text messages are useful ways to convey important information, it isn’t always instant. An intercom system can change that. This also reduces the chances of interruption that can increase how much annoyance and irritation there can be. Another unexpected benefit is that everyone can be reached even when they can’t be at their desk, as they are now.
Make General Announcements
Intercoms are commonly integrated into the design of hotels, airports, schools, and other public institutions. These establishments prove that these systems can work when you need to make general announcements. Now think about what that means for your business. Testing fire alarm systems is going to be important during this downtime, and ensuring that they work is essential before your employees can come back to work as they normally do. Announcing that tests are being conducted is important because it can let your employees know that it is only a drill and not a real fire – though on the other hand, announcing other emergency situations is just as useful.
Improve Overall Security
Improving the security of your office is also crucial. That is something that an intercom system can help to achieve. Security camera integration can help verify the identity of employees and visitors without the need for biometrics if your small business is unable to afford such a measure. It also helps decrease the likelihood of anyone wandering into restricted areas.
Add Video Chat Functions
In these uncertain times, social distancing has become the new normal. Video chat functions make it easier for everyone to stay connected and conduct meetings without having to do it in person. Once everything goes back to the way it was, this technology can still be useful. Moving away from the desk can be tough, especially when there is a lot of work to catch up on; this is where video conferencing comes in handy through intercom systems.
