Remote Working

Optimising productivity, minimising
downtime and specialist technical services

  • Thriving in the new remote working reality

    Organisations around the world have accepted that remote working is a long-term solution rather than short-term fix. In the initial weeks of lockdown, businesses moved quickly to equip their employees with the software they needed to work effectively and maintain the best possible customer service.

    Now it’s time to scale productivity, reignite projects and processes that were put on hold, and move into the next phase of remote working; from adapting to thriving.

    This page provides an overview of where our vendors and partners can help. We’ll continue to update it as we receive new advice, enhanced products and additional services.

    If you need any help or have questions, please get in touch.

Remote Solutions

During these unprecedented times, it’s important to ensure that your customers can deliver the service their customers are used to with smooth, collaborative and secure remote capabilities.

  • Access servers & monitor activity

    Enable the IT team to monitor log-on activity and manage access rights for users working remotely.

  • Open communication

    Ensure quick and easy communications on an individual, team and company-wide level using messenger, video conferencing and file sharing.

  • Windows and Mac integration

    Not every company can provide remote working equipment immediately. Enable employees to use their own devices, Windows or Mac.

  • Encrypt files and emails

    With the ongoing uncertainty, security is even more of a priority. Encryption tools prevent data falling into the wrong hands.

  • Run backups from home

    Avoid unreliable tape-backups and disk failure. Instead, backups can be run from home directly to a public or private cloud.

  • Remote software installation

    The IT team can install and update software on employees’ devices without the need to be in the same building.

  • Monitor IT infrastructure efficiency

    Monitor the efficiency of backups, network configuration, server access to ensure quick response and resolution of any issues.

  • Remote IT service desk

    Users can log tickets with their remote IT Team who that can respond, investigate and resolve first-line issues quickly.
