One of the most notable management trends over the last few years is a distinct shift from companies to encourage their employees to work remotely. This is because it benefits both employer and employee greatly in terms of efficiency and morale. Very few enjoy travelling for business meetings. Substantial amounts of time and money have to be allocated to making your journey which could be alternatively be used to complete work. Preparing for this concept should be a priority for any organisation who wants to adapt with the times.

A business has been reviewing methods in which they can prevent productivity interruptions during the winter months. When snow falls in their area, half of their staff become unable to commute to work due to icy roads and a lack of public transport. Someone suggested that Cisco WebEx could be their solution.
After they implemented Cisco WebEx they wondered why they hadn’t made the change earlier. Employees were able to collaborate with each other and customers as precisely as if they were in the same room due to the high quality video and audio WebEx provided. The screenshare function made meetings a breeze when employees were stuck at home as ideas could be still be easily explained. The business actually went one step further when they realised the potential of WebEx. They began allowing specific employees to work remotely a few days a week.
This improved workplace efficiency and morale. It also saved on overheads both for the company and the employees in terms of commuting costs. Many staff believed they worked better from home also. When the next winter approached, the stress that management always felt around this time was extinguished because they knew business could go ahead like normal.
A large multinational bank is looking for a way to host their weekly meetings with the managers at each geographical location without making them travel halfway across the country. They chose to install the IX5000, a well-renowned Cisco Telepresence product, as the IT managers had heard from their contacts at other firms of the success of the product in their own environment.
They installed the IX5000 at their head office and after their first meeting they were convinced they had made the right choice. Due to the size of the screens, the clarity and the unrivalled speaker setup, they really felt as though they were sitting in front of the managers who were hundreds of miles away. The managers couldn’t be happier as they had just skipped their tiresome weekly journey down the country and they knew they could right back to work as soon as the meeting was finished. The company didn’t have to pay for their flights or train tickets either.
The CEO was pleased with their new collaboration room as it allowed him to have professional discussions with large clients without engaging in transatlantic travel. When he met with stakeholders using the IX5000, they were astounded with the highly professional set up. This reflected well on the business.
The rate of change in the modern technology landscape is greater now than it has been for the last 20+ years. This makes it critical for companies who want to remain competitive to remain flexible in their ability to consume new technologies. The further a company falls behind, the greater the effort required to catch-up to the current benchmark.
We work closely with companies to build platforms and roadmaps. Our solutions maintain a good balance between remaining flexible enough to incorporate new technologies that can advance the business, whilst ensuring that a core focus remains on delivering tangible outcomes.
Throughout the engagement process, we will provide ongoing consultation and feedback that helps determine which technologies to look out for, where they can be a good fit and how they can be incorporated into the environment in question.

Our highly communicative approach means we will work alongside you every step of the way, crafting a Unified Collaboration Solution that perfectly fits your business needs, both now and into the future.
