Di­gi­tal Life Sci­en­ces ex­pands home of­fice work and re­li­es on a te­le­pho­ne sys­tem in the cloud with seam­less Mi­cro­soft Teams in­te­gra­ti­on as well as mo­bi­le pho­ne con­tracts for all employees.

The on­set of the Co­ro­na pan­de­mic also brought ch­an­ges to Di­gi­tal Life Sci­en­ces. Al­most all of the of­fices re­main­ed emp­ty as the ne­ar­ly 60 em­ployees shifted their work­day to the home of­fice wi­t­hout fur­ther ado. A few weeks la­ter, a po­si­ti­ve re­spon­se could al­re­a­dy be gi­ven — the col­le­agues were working self-suf­fi­ci­ent­ly wi­t­hout any rest­ric­tions. The­r­e­fo­re, Di­gi­tal Life Sci­en­ces re­cent­ly de­ci­ded to ex­pand the pos­si­bi­li­ty of home of­fice work for all full-time job of­fers.

Ho­we­ver, in or­der to en­su­re smooth com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on with busi­ness part­ners and col­le­agues in the home of­fice in the long term, fur­ther me­a­su­res were ta­ken: On the one hand,the pro­vi­der of the cloud-ba­sed te­le­pho­ne sys­tem was ch­an­ged in or­der to achie­ve seam­less Mi­cro­soft Teams in­te­gra­ti­on and, on the other hand, the en­ti­re work­force was equip­ped with mo­bi­le pho­ne contracts.

The use of o2’s Di­gi­tal Pho­ne Busi­ness vir­tu­al te­le­pho­ne sys­tem en­su­res lo­ca­ti­on-in­de­pen­dent and seam­less ac­ces­si­bi­li­ty while eli­mi­na­ting the use of cor­ded te­le­pho­nes. In ad­di­ti­on to this pri­ma­ry aspect, the idea came up of pro­vi­ding all em­ployees with a mo­bi­le com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons con­tract and also sub­si­di­zing the as­so­cia­ted hard­ware for the em­ployees. The work­force en­joys un­li­mi­t­ed high-speed data vo­lu­me, an o2 all­net flat rate for te­le­pho­ny and text mes­sa­ging, and Eu­ro­pe-wide roa­ming for both busi­ness and pri­va­te use. This also has the ad­van­ta­ge that em­ployees from more rural re­gi­ons with a lower fi­xed net­work band­width can ac­cess flu­id In­ter­net ac­cess at any time via a hot­spot on their smartphone.
