The rapid uptake of mobile computing technologies can now offer access to business information anytime from virtually anywhere – gone are the days of being tied to a phone and a PC on your desk. Laptops, PDA’s, iPads, plus a whole host of mobile phone devices such as iPhone & Blackberry offer the business user a wide choice of devices to communicate with.
Remote working or Tele-working as it is often referred to as, can offer employers a number of key business benefits, which in turn leads to a happier, more flexible, efficient and productive workforce. These benefits include minimising the time spent commuting and therefore reducing operating expenses, decreasing office space to lower overheads and greater flexibility in dealing with the unexpected such as weather extremes, road congestion and public transport delays. Employers offering flexible working practices are seen as particularly desirable by prospective employees and they can also enjoy increased staff retention and loyalty as a result.
Available technologies such as reliable high speed internet and mobile internet combined with secure connections between the home, mobile worker and the office, enable a whole host of flexible remote working options to be considered. So whether you are home, on the road or even abroad, we can provide a remote solution to accommodate your particular requirements.
Mobilising your workforce may not suit all businesses, but chances are, your competitors are already using these technologies, so perhaps it is worth reviewing your own company needs to consider the benefits of mobile computing technologies?
