How the right tech can help


So, we've already considered what to expect from the newly evolved, post-pandemic workplace in a previous blog. Let's take a look at the tech which can underpin your safe and successful return to the office.

 

1. Contactless technology - smart tech that avoids using shared surfaces

Your printer or MFD interface can be configured to do more that just copy, scan, fax, or print, but also translate, collaborate, and digitise documents in just a few simple clicks with a range of smart Apps. You can even to this on your own device to avoid shared surfaces.  Similarly, Digital Sign In is a contactless way for employees and visitors to log in to the office using a personal device. This tech not only reduces the risk of cross-contamination, but also provides a practical solution to track and trace, and gives a great first impression for visitors. 
 

2. Flexible working - secure, work from anywhere capabilities 

When staff are working remotely, you need to ramp up your security accordingly. Being able to push out security and software updates is an aobsolute necessity to retain the integrity of your data and infrastructure.

As you welcome staff back to the office, devices such as laptops and tablets pose a risk when plugging back into the network, so it is key to set up an area on the network to run a “car wash” scan of devices to ensure that compliance standards, and antivirus scans are sorted. 

Our IT Services can take the burden from internal teams, reducing helpdesk calls and freeing up your time for more important tasks.
 

3. Automation - for more streamlined, productive working

Being tied to paper-based processes has proved problematic for remote working. Digitisation of workstreams such as inbound or outbound mail, accounts payable and other everyday processes helps modern companies build in resilience, increase efficiency and improve accuracy, whilst also boosting productivity.

 

4. Visibility and monitoring - tools to keep you and your customers on track

Digitisation creates opportunities for greater visibility across key operations for internal reporting and customer portal access. It means you can spend less time managing issues and more time making smart decisions based on real time views of your business. It also provides customers with a better user experience.
