Quick IT tips for working from home

Do you work from home? Here are four home working essentials that will make your workplace more efficient and more comfortable:

1. A stable broadband Internet line: This is the most important item you need as a home worker. Video conferences will not stutter, file transfers will be zippy, and your productivity will not suffer.

2. A comfortable desk and a good chair: These furnishings make working less stressful and more enjoyable.

3. A webcam and a VoIP phone: Actually seeing the person with whom you are having a conversation can transform the communication process. Furthermore, a VoIP phone will cut your communication costs drastically.

4. An all-in-one printer/scanner: A multifunction device combining a fax, printer, and scanner is a prerequisite for any home worker who wants to run a productive office.
