4 Lessons we've all Learned about Business Tech in the last 12 months

remote work We bet there's not a single person out there that won't agree with the following statement: the world and most businesses have been tipped upside down over the last 12 months.

Many businesses were caught off guard, but we've helped almost all survive through the use of flexible technology.

Here are some of the most critical lessons many of us in the world of tech have learned to help you thrive:

Working from home is workable.

Armed with a laptop, internet connectivity and Office 365, we helped many of our biggest customers transition to a work from home environment on a semi-permanent basis.

There were challenges with some legacy business applications that still require a physical server to run, but we quickly provided a solution that allows the workforce to connect to office-based servers with the click of a button from the comfort of their home.

Remote security is a priority.

The rush to work from home saw the focus on connectivity with VPN access and collaboration software; however, many looked closely at protecting their business data in the work from home environment.

Simple tasks like surfing the web from a work laptop would not be an issue when protected by a corporate firewall.

How do you protect your corporate devices when they are being used on a home network? A purpose-built cloud firewall.

No matter how insecure the connection is, a cloud firewall protects all devices and data that belong to your company. Do you have one?

Communication is key.

Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Google Meet saw many businesses transition from in-person meetings to truly virtual communications.

The uptake of these platforms has seen some of the biggest advances as all the big players in the space are looking to acquire market share.

New features and security are added, regularly with advances in collaboration and usability; all of these platforms are now hard to live without.

Futureproofing your business tech is essential.

As lockdowns ease across the globe, this sees many working in new ways. Perceptions of remote working have changed with some uncertainties about what the future looks like. Technology has become one of the highest priority items for most small and medium-sized businesses.

A mobile workforce that can work efficiently and communicate with ease is crucial to the future success of your business. We're here to help you make this transition, give us a call at (786) 621-8600 or send an email to begin a no-obligation conversation.
