2017 was the year of being mobile and 2018 doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Workers are still constantly on-the-go, demanding they have access to their apps and emails from any location.Storing all information needed on a piece of hardware in the office is no longer effective. Businesses need to give their workers the tools they need to make their work life, work for them. This is where cloud hosted technologies, like hosted desktops, can be put to use to get the most out of each hour during the working day.
By hosting your business-critical applications, like Office 365, you can turn any internet enabled device into your workstation. There’s no longer any need to carry around a bulky laptop and endless amounts of files and paper. Instead, workers can view their own iPhone, tablet and Chromebook as a tool for efficient working instead of a distraction. By implementing BYOD strategies, businesses have seen an improvement in productivity with workers sending 20 more emails per day.
Online and offline working
We’ve all been there, trying to find a good internet connection when underground on a train. With cloud-hosted applications, workers can still be productive even when the connectivity drops out. Work on any file when offline and simply sync it to one version of the truth when internet connectivity is restored. Instead of viewing the journey to meetings as a hindrance, see it as an opportunity to optimise productivity with on-the-go working.
A major concern for business owners is the integrity of their data if it is taken from the four walls of the office. By storing all apps, emails and data in a secure cloud platform workers are free to get on with their tasks with all security threats monitored and responded to accordingly. Cybersecurity becomes invisible and businesses can get on with what they need to do. As a managed service provider, Atlas Cloud operates from ISO 27001 data centres and feature on G-Cloud 9, meaning data is secure from the get-go.
