Runnning a Business on Skype

November 9th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Now that i have moved on from the REA Group, i am setting up a new business.  In the process of doing this, we have decided that we will try our hardest to use new technologies to make the business run.  The first decision we took was to get right of the old telephone system and to use skype alone.

The theory is simple.  The business the we are setting up is global in focus and therefore we will need to be contacting people around the world on a regular basis.  Everyone has a PC so this is not a problem and all we do is give each of them a head set and away we go.  We are using Skype Business software that works like a dream.  We now have 20 people working off it and there are no problems.
