Keeping Your IT In Good Order While Working Remotely
Bell Integration shares some tips to help with good IT housekeeping
There has never been a time in history when the number of employees working from home was as much as it is today. The global pandemic transformed the face of the conventional workspace and a large corporate office containing multiple cubicles where hardworking employees strongly resemble busy bees in a hive is getting far less common. While many employees prefer this solution as they have far less time stuck in traffic, have the freedom and comforts of their homes and remain more productive than at the office, the one challenge this transformation did bring about was how to provide efficient and effective IT support to these remote locations.
“Every generation has their fair share of challenges to deal with and for our generation, the most predominant obstacle without any doubt was and, in many ways, still is, Covid-19 and the immense impact it had on businesses both large and small alike. One of the ways this obstacle manifest in our everyday lives is to provide the IT support your employees need while they are working off-site. What our team would suggest as the first step to form the foundation of your success is to ensure that all your employees have access to the internet. Having access to unlimited and reliable internet is vital in effective IT support,” says Peter White, the chief architect at the Bell Integration CTO Office.
While your team must have access to speedy and reliable internet, they would also need more advanced solutions. Having old equipment on your systems can cause various concerns and it is best to advise your team members to upgrade their solutions to the more advanced options available. Having proper security in place is another vital step you can take to ensure that your systems are protected and serve as a form of IT support. Thus, it would be to your benefit to set up a strict security protocol to ensure that your entire team have clarity on what is allowed within this system.
“When your team were all operating in-house, they had the benefit of access to a reliable IT support team. While their location might have changed, it would not minimize the need to support they might have. So, it is vital to have the necessary actions and steps in place to help them when needed and to ensure productivity,” White further explained how to ensure IT support in this time of remote operations.
