With the emergence of COVID-19, an increasing number of businesses have restructured to allow their employees to work from home. Through the use of IP cloud-based phone systems, employees can take their work phone and utilize it at home. The employee will be able to continue to operate within the company system just as they would within the workplace.

At Forest City Communications, we have helped many of our customers convert to IP cloud-based phone systems so they can take advantage of the flexibility that these systems have to offer. Are you looking to convert your business phone system to be home office friendly? We’d love to help! 


We guarantee your satisfaction!

Never having previously used the services of Forest City Communications, but finding them on the... internet, we called them well past regular business hours one evening for repair services. Coincidentally, the business owner answered our phone call and said he would send a technician very first thing the next day to address our problem. Sure enough, the next morning technicians arrived, quickly diagnosing and repairing our problem. Thank you Chad and Quinton for the prompt, professional, courteous service. I highly recommend others give Forest City Communications a try.read more
