How is Technology Transforming Remote Working

Another significant benefit of the cloud is that it has no restrictions on devices or location, allowing staff to perform activities both within and outside of the office.

FREMONT, CA: Businesses have been urged to introduce remote working systems wherever they can due to the exponential proliferation of COVID-19. The outbreak, according to experts, can radically alter the way people live, learn, and work. Employees are beginning to wonder if they ever wanted an office in the first place, as businesses have been pressured to send their entire staff home.

Here are key areas that technology can help remote working teams with:

Audio and Video Conferencing Competences

Working from home has no boundaries, and with audio and video conferencing tools revolutionizing the conventional business conference, successful collaboration is no longer limited by geography. Audio or video conferencing will not only save one time and resources on flights, but it will also boost conference attendance and offer the company a competitive edge.

Flexible Storage and Cloud Access

Cloud-based networks are here to stay, and the dispersed workers will not be able to function without them. In terms of business, one of the key advantages of cloud technology is its scalability and versatility, which allows companies to scale up and down according to their individual storage requirements. It also enables quick updates in response to changes, facilitating development and efficiency without the need to buy a full software kit.

Another significant benefit of the cloud is that it has no restrictions on devices or location, allowing staff to perform activities both within and outside of the office. It encourages staff to exchange important information alongside other technical files while also allowing for adequate internal and external communication. Furthermore, the sync feature will enable employees to migrate between devices, boosting efficiency for on-the-go workers quickly. Much of this is without mentioning the fact that cloud systems are cost-effective, lowering company IT costs such as hardware, applications, and infrastructure.

Time Tracking Tools

When it comes to working from home, time-tracking applications are a great boon.  It is important to emphasize to companies interested in implementing a company-wide app for clocking in and out that it is not about checking up on the staff but rather about cultivating a sense of shared responsibility and monitoring project progress. As for most technology, these apps' functionality differs by organization, but most enable managers to see precisely when their employees are spending their time and how effective their time management is. Their willingness to assist management in identifying possible weak points and determining where resources can be allocated is priceless.
