Another possible option is to run your own XMPP server with your own
accounts (which could be if you wanted). You can make this
server accessible for remote/home/road-based users as well as
office-based users, if you wish.

I'd recommend the Openfire server. It's not difficult to set up and
takes little ongoing management, in my experience. See It works well
with Pidgin. (Note, I have no connection with Openfire or its
developers; I am simply a user of the software).
