Powering remote workplaces: the technology helping teams stay in touch

- May 2, 2018 2 MIN READ

Digital transformation should be at the top of any workplace agenda. No matter what industry you’re in, finding the best way to make the shift is not only crucial for the continued growth of the business but the ongoing happiness of your team.

This is especially true in the case of remote workers, as the PCs and products you bring into the business will serve as their central method of contact with the team. Choosing the right tools will see you running an efficient, streamlined and connected business team, no matter where they are in the world.

Face-to-face benefits

A recent survey[1] conducted by global audio, web and video conferencing provider PGI revealed the magnitude of benefits that come when businesses adopt conferencing and collaboration tools, such as Intel’s Unite. Not only does it significantly reduce travel costs (noting a 30% reduction in expenditure on fuel, rental cars and flights), but limits the potential for any miscommunications among remote-working teams and while hosting external client meetings. By using conferencing software, employees can speak face-to-face, thus interpreting any associated body language – a huge boon, given the survey revealed that as much as 93% of communication is non-verbal.

The design process behind Intel’s Unite has been meticulously planned to make business collaboration easier and faster than ever before. By doing away with cables all together, a completely wireless system is created – ensuring meetings start faster and productivity is boosted. The ability to share content from client devices, regardless of location, is an added benefit that’s becoming increasingly valuable for users.

Hardware that transforms

The hardware you hand over to your workforce has the potential to make or break their overall productivity, efficiency and job satisfaction. If you expect your team to thrive in this digital era, you need to arm them with the best tools on the market – and Intel’s latest 2 in 1s and 8th Generation Intel Core powered laptops won’t disappoint.

Boasting exceptional laptop performance, the sleek design and mobility of a device, day-long battery life and two-factor authentication including biometric measures, makes the laptop or 2-in-1 efficient, adaptable and secure. It will transform the way businesses operate on a daily basis, while also streamlining life on the road for remote workers.

These devices are designed to nurture core competencies, bring innovative ideas to life and drive collaboration – three key components of a 21st-century business. The shift can bring with it a plethora of change and uncertainty for any business, and while that uncertainty is inevitable, it’s in no way a valid reason to ignore it.

So if you’re looking for advice on where to begin – start with your tools, educate your team on how best to use them and focus on building a united workforce with a sound knowledge of collaboration tactics for a more fulfilling and successful way of doing business in this new, connected world we live in.
