REMOTE WORKING IT SOLUTIONS
Flexible, remote working is now part of our new normal.
Cloud computing and digital transformation are on the rise enabling workplaces to become more flexible and allowing teams to work remotely. The recent surge in working from home – due to COVID19 – means businesses need to ensure their working from home strategy is robust to ensure business continuity.
Remote working is now the norm, however, with our lockdown restrictions changing constantly and often with hours notice, employees need to be able to shift seamlessly from their office environment to their homes. It is more important than ever to arm your teams with the tools to transition seamlessly from the office to home, and anywhere in between.
We have helped many Australian businesses to migrate their infrastructure enabling their teams to work effectively and securely remotely. This means ensuring employees have effective remote desktops, providing access to systems, files and phone systems and can complete everyday tasks no matter where they are located.
Many of our remote desktop solutions can be deployed without us needing to be onsite. Contact us today for more information.

What are the benefits of remote working?
Extending your IT infrastructure beyond the boundaries of the office will reduce your IT support burden and whilst your investment in technology will be limited, your outgoing costs will be lower.
Gartner reports that 48% of employees are reporting higher performance when they are working fully remote. Remote workers more often go above and beyond and report higher performance. The question is no longer whether employees can be productive when working remotely, it is what you need to provide to employees for them to be productive.

It is no secret that working from home or remotely can bring many benefits to your business including increased productivity, employee satisfaction and low overheads.

Your Remote Working questions answered
What is the meaning of remote working?
Employees and managers now expect to be able to switch locations and schedules dynamically where it makes sense to drive productivity and engagement. Remote work is ‘the new normal’. A modern workplace is a flexible work arrangement that allows employees to work from a remote location outside of the formal office environment. These days remote working is changing everything, from how we approach work-life balance to the way we are collaborating with our teams and unifying our communications.
Whilst the concept of remote working is appealing to most employees, it is clear that businesses have a task ahead of them to ensure that they can create a workspace that can be managed online securely. Businesses are having to pivot and adapt and take into account the evolving responsibilities of socially distanced offices, staggered work schedules and advanced productivity measures.
Employers need to understand and respect the value of remote working. From a practical standpoint, they need to understand what tools their teams need to effectively communicate, collaborate and manage their work productively. Solutions like our modern workplace remote desktop do just that.

Will a hybrid workforce duplicate our IT infrastructure?
Resilient businesses will continuously re-engineer their IT strategies and infrastructure with quality IT roadmap.
A concept called “everywhere enterprise” was raised in a recent Gartner report which means going beyond enabling a workforce with mobile devices and remote access alone.
Everywhere enterprises use technology, team structures, processes, skills and tools to empower remote workforces, harness distributed IT infrastructures and serve ubiquitous customer bases. Businesses now need to deliver consistent and secure access for all employees, regardless of where they work.
Best practices for designing the right systems for remote working are:
- Define requirements and establish the specifics of who needs what, including consideration for download and upload speeds.
- Optimising performance by deploying solutions that distribute traffic across the network and prevent backloads that may arise due to routing everything to an onsite data centre.
- Invest in cloud-based services. It will be more reliable and allow your business to quickly shift capacity in response to a disruption.
