Remote Working

Please find below some frequently asked questions about working remotely and your Nimvelo phone system.

Can we take our phones home?

No - it should behave in exactly the same way - just like bringing your desktop phone home with you! This includes:

  • Ring groups
  • Call queues
  • IVRs
  • Do the options above cost any extra?

No - unless you decide to use a paid-for softphone app (Cloud Softphone doesn’t cost anything extra)
