Our Remote Working solutions?
Remote workers love the cloud because it provides a simple and secure experience where they can sign in from anywhere on any device.
Cloud computing increases security and gives users access to a remote virtual work environment so they can access all the same systems, applications and data, that they could when they are in the office.
- Cost-effective: You don’t need to spend money on equipment or infrastructure needs and relieves the burden on your IT staff.
- Scalable: You can add or remove services as needed.
- Convenient: Remote employees have easy access and the cloud makes to access and share work.
- Secure: The most secure way for workers to access data.
Once you’re up and running on the cloud, you can further improve collaboration with cloud-based business tools and software, such as those related to project management and communication. These give your remote employees the same level of access your in-house staff enjoys. Information Management software enables users to easily edit and share documents with other team members and customers.
Microsoft Teams is the perfect tool for home workers that enables them to simply communicate, collaborate and share with other members of their teams wherever they are located. Features include Chat, File Sharing, Team Conversations and Team meetings via both audio and video. Microsoft Teams integrates with Office 365 and is also included within the free license. Microsoft Teams has an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that it simple to use and ensures uptake. Combined with familiar apps like Word, Outlook and Excel, means your team members can be up and running straight away.
Remote employees often work from different places and heavily rely on their mobile devices and laptops. By making mobile a key part of your workflow strategy, you offer more flexibility and create better efficiency.
Unified Communication brings together your email, text and voice seamlessly with live voice, audio, video conferencing, and web collaboration, in one easy to use interface. This makes it simple to integrate different interconnected communication channels into one simple channel.
You can seamlessly integrate your smartphone into the company communications system. Simply install an App on your mobile device, and your mobile phone instantly becomes a full-value extension of your phone system.
Easily accessible even when out of the office: With a mobile app as part of your telephony your remote workers can be reached under one single phone number. This means they can be reached at one single business number, no matter whether they are using a mobile device or a fixed phone and wherever they are working from. When using the app to make outgoing calls, your office number is displayed so callers are unaware where the call is being made from.
Cyber Security has been at the top of the agenda for many organisations and home working should not comprise this. As mentioned above cloud provides the ideal solution for secure access.
Mulit-Factor Authentication (MFA)
MFA provides an extra layer of security to make ensure that those trying to gain access to an online account are who they say they are. With 2FA, a user will enter their username and a password. Then, instead of immediately gaining access, they will be required to provide another piece of information.
Business need to be able to provide protection to their users wherever they
are working. Anti-Virus protection such as Sophos Home Edition includes artificial intelligence to block
advanced viruses, malware, exploits, and ransomware attacks.
