Flexible remote work is now the new normal! What would have earned office goers raised eyebrows just a few years ago has become almost ordinary. And it is all thanks to technology!
Here is a look at some key technological innovations that have made remote work possible for millions across the globe.
Number one on the list is cloud computing. Without easy access to fast Internet and data services, most employees would still be tied to their desks. Cloud technology is the foundation on which almost all remote productivity tools and file sharing systems are based.
Secure Access to Business and Mobile applications – uninterrupted access to office files and applications is critical for smooth remote working scenarios. Accessing business applications and mobile tools with VPN remote access and other secure WiFi options ensure that employees can work on-the-go or from home.
Productivity applications – remote work wouldn’t be possible with productivity and project management tools! As we mentioned earlier most are built on cloud platforms and offer specific services across the entire range of business activities. From time management to note-taking to collaborative working, communications and more – every gap anyone will ever encounter in the remote work scenario is covered with an app. We must mention Slack, Trello, GitHub, DropBox, Buffer, and Asana but there are so many more!
Better communication tools – better audio and video call options has made remote working seamless. With a good camera (for high level meetings we suggest you invest in an integrated smart video conferencing camera) and connectivity employees can work outside the office without a drop in productivity. Skype and Zoom are favoured apps that offer free as well as enterprise versions.
Health devices – naturally, all this sitting on a computer can’t be good for your health. So there are special devices that focus on improving the physical strains of working from home. Most notable are blue light blocking glasses and, of course, the famous peloton bike!
The key to all these technologies for out-of-office workers is - the Internet! Always available, reliable and affordable Internet connectivity is what underpins the remote working sector.
