Go. Go. Go.

How to make the most of the big analogue switch-off.

Analogue phone services and the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) are being replaced by an IP (Internet Protocol) system. So, how can you turn it into a real opportunity?


By planning ahead you can negate any impact on your organisation that could trigger a real domino effect across your operations.


Some telecommunications providers have already started switching off analogue technology and are enjoying the benefits of going fully digital. By joining them, you’re getting ahead, being proactive and forward-thinking.


Being switched-on is seizing the opportunity now. What are you waiting for?

Getting on board with digital transformation now can open a whole new set of avenues for your organisation to explore and can have a positive impact on your staff, your customers and your productivity.


Many organisations are taking the big analogue switch-off as the opportunity to take a step back from day-to-day operations and think about what kind of network they would put in place to optimise their way of working.


Accelerate to the cloud

Moving to the cloud enables teams to collaborate seamlessly from anywhere and on any device, while being able to access the data they need at any time.


The cloud is also more secure than an on-premises system while keeping you up to speed with all the latest software and security updates. Plus it’s easy to run, with tech support taken care of for you.


The move could actually save you money as you can scale it up or down as you need. So, if you’ve always been meaning to take full advantage of the cloud, this is the perfect time to do it and reap the rewards.




Increase in employee productivity due to remote and flexible working

Higher employee satisfaction

Higher customer satisfaction

Fully enable hybrid and dynamic working

The move to digital can fully enable hybrid and dynamic working. Across the UK, people have embraced hybrid working following the challenges brought on by the pandemic.


The technology not only allows employees to work remotely, it also allows decision-makers to collaborate virtually. Employees are empowered, while organisations have the security and protection they need to perform at higher levels than before.


So think about the technologies you want to take on board and make sure they can all work together. Also, keep an eye on the future – you don’t just want to solve today’s hybrid working challenges, but any changes that may happen in the years ahead.

Improve customer and people experience

Another advantage is the improved experience that going fully digital can bring to staff and customers alike making it so much more convenient to shop or access services.


Cebr found the pandemic accelerated digital progress in enterprise businesses by more than four years leading to 7.9% higher customer satisfaction and 7.2% higher employee satisfaction.


With tools to support collaboration, cloud services to enable easy access and security solutions to keep precious information safe, the big analogue switch-off enables you to unleash efficiency across your entire organisation.

Embed sustainability

Going digital could even help to reduce your carbon footprint. And being sustainable and showing you care about ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) issues can make you more attractive to your customers.


Employees value sustainability too. So if you’re aiming to attract and keep the very best talent, you want to show them that you have sustainability goals in place and you’re working towards them.


Being more sustainable can also save you money by cutting back on waste and reusing materials. Act wisely now and seize the initiative.
