Basically, shipping a mikrotik router that 'calls home' and establishes a vpn connection for the pc and phone that are connected to the mikrotik...   user plugs router in, plugs phone and computer into router, and that traffic is encapsulated back to our office... simple and straighforward.

It would seem trivial to route a subnet down to the vpn client in the phone, that would be available to devices connected on the PC side of the telephone..  This would be tremendous for an at-home contact center agent..    An added benefit would be to limit connections the connection on the PC side of the phone to a specific mac address.. 
We use the Yealink phones - a number of which do openvpn, we had Mikrotiks in the middle but are removing them now, we haven’t tested the PC routing side though.
