The remote office

The remote office

What does the remote office look like? You are in a comfortable place, whether it’s at home, a coffee shop or a work hub, with a cup of tea and your favorite music playing. These days, having a single office isn’t so common anymore.

With businesses using the cloud, it has made it much easier for employees to work remotely. But with employees scattered all over the place, how can an organisation ensure communication between employees and that they are actually working?

Having multiple Unified Communications (UC) applications in the cloud is key to ensuring a flowing workforce. Having an Instant Messaging application ensures immediate delivery and high interactivity, enhancing efficiency and communication within the organisation. Video conferencing enables not only audio and visual communication with another employee or client, but also screen sharing, document annotation and brainstorming on a virtual whiteboard, all from within the same software.

Using collaborative tools will adapt to the needs of organisations. As businesses grow, whether expanding its workforce or opening a new office on the other side of the globe, it will need collaborative tools to keep up with the rapid changes. Document management systems enables accessibility and further collaboration. People can work on the same document while keeping up with the changes that other people in the shared project make, regardless of which time zone or location they are in.

The office isn’t just a physical space anymore, it has become a virtual entity, connecting employees through a centralised cloud system. With applications such as messaging platforms, document management and video conferencing systems, it will enhance communication, collaboration and productivity within the organisation by having that flexibility of allowing your employees to work from a comfortable environment.
