Must Have Technologies for SMBs/Enterprises- Is your Workspace Future-Ready?“The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.” – This saying is applicable to individuals, teams, as well as businesses.

While building a business, one of the most difficult and crucial aspects is to build a culture where people love to come to work. They feel more connected; their work environment encourages them to contribute more & perform at their highest level; and where group of individuals/team collaborates together from different geographic locations without feeling they are distant apart.

Evolving Flexible Workspaces

As business grows more, workspace needs to keep up with all the technological advancements so that everyone remains seamlessly connected, collaborated, and at the same time, more efficient & productive as compared to traditional workplaces. Following are some of the factors, which have fueled the need for flexible workspaces:

Online 24*7: Businesses run 24*7. Some work for their end clients, which could be located hundreds of miles away and some work on outsourcing models. Irrespective of location, the work should go on without any communication interruption or issues due to time-zone difference.

Mobile Employees: Employees need to work both remotely and on-site. Especially, mobile employees need to collaborate with rest of the team for discussion, reporting, negotiations, escalations, etc. They expect upgraded technologies so that they can work wherever, whenever, and however they choose, across all their devices. 

BYOD Era: Now-a-days, people are not confined to work through their laptops/desktops. They prefer to do real work on their mobile devices and not just checking their emails or make a call.

Inter-Connected Teams: Organizations are more connected than ever before. Teams hold video meetings/discussions with other teams, sitting on the other site of the continent.

Alternate Work Models: Many companies provide flexible work options, like work from home or work from their client site or any other remote location. At the same time, they need to make sure about the security of the data transmitted.

Co-Working Space: A single desk can be utilized by multiple employees (working on shifts) through shared resources without any interference.

Business Applications: ERP/CRM/Customer Support/ Communication (Audio/Video)/ Collaboration, and other endless essential business systems often put a load on the network, which can create a network chaos, sometimes, if not handled properly.
