With companies continuing to allow more remote working since COVID-19, it’s important to continually assess your team’s productivity and ways of working from home.
Ensure your staff are optimising their designated home workspace with tools that will transform their laptop into a workstation. A brilliant addition to a home office is a docking station. It lets you connect extra hardware and accessories like a keyboard, external mouse and printer to a laptop through one connector.
For a more immersive work experience a new screen monitor plugged into your laptop gives you the flexibility to multitask on various applications though a stunning display. So you can maximize the power of your laptop.
Ergonomic tools such as laptop stands, sit-stand desks or a foot rest are also helpful additions to prevent aches and pains.
The simplest way for teams to work efficiently and securely is through G Suite for Business. This Google platform of apps gives you a seamless user experience where your whole team can work on documents, spreadsheets and presentations on one platform. Google Calendar and Google Meet are automatically synced to G Suite so you can plan and hold video meetings effortlessly. Real time viewing of files on Google docs and Google slides means line managers can monitor their remote workers performance and review edit history so document changes can be tracked. You can also have multiple contributors on each file for even greater team collaboration.
As a Google Cloud Partner, we take care of everything from workflow planning, deployment, data migration and user-adoption training.
Increasing productivity and maintaining great customer service is key now more than ever. So we suggest you look to upgrade your old phone system for a modern IP system that can connects coworkers and customers anywhere, with a few clicks on any device. You can even make savings on calls, line rental as well as support costs.
With calls, video conferencing and web messaging on one simple Unified Comms platform it’s clear how it can really deliver increased productivity and reduce costs for businesses.
When deploying new devices remotely or simply keeping your current devices up to date – this can be time-consuming work, especially if IT is not your day job. So make device setup and management easier with Mobile Device Management (MDM).
MDM not only allows you to remotely configure and update devices, it lets you secure them as well. With employees accessing sensitive information from home an MDM solution can prevent unauthorised access by enforcing encryption, passcodes and even remotely wiping devices.
