Hello all. The other boards didn't look so active, so I thought I'd post it here.

Laughing

I run a small firm from home (better to devote time to family, right), and Iíve recently expanded to include a few more employees. With expansion, of course, comes new difficulties, and Iíve got some for communication. IMs and email-lists are too impersonal and not everyone has Blackberries or constant touch with email.

I prefer phone contacts, but Iím a technical boob and my research isnít getting me very far. Does anyone have recommendations for some kind of communication solution? I heard dedicated phone systems cost a lot, though. Should I hire a receptionist?

Hi! Yeah, I just got on myself, and this board's pretty sleepy Laughing

Itís nice that youíve chosen to work closer to your family. This whole virtual office revolutionís working out well, IMO. Whatís the size of your staff?

If youíve less than 10 on your team a dedicated receptionist is overkill unless you double-duty her/him as a secretary or personal assistant. Phone systems these days are all virtual and hosted, so you donít need to buy into expensive boxes meant for entire office buildings.

Just off the top of my head I can think of gotvmail. I read in a review theyíre optimized for up to 10 people and have a low egghead-level needed to work, so it should help you in that regard.
