The Power of Technology in the Workplace

Date: May 12, 2014

It is no surprise that the advances in technology have had a direct impact on the workplace.  The ability to work from home – or anywhere – has become second nature.  The developments in the cloud and the introduction of “bring-your-own-devices” have reduced the need for workplaces to have a physical location.  According to a 2012 survey by Ipsos, one in six employees globally now work remotely.  Working remotely has a positive impact on employees and their work productivity.  With the help of Unified Communication (UC) technologies, working remotely is becoming easier and more productive. 

 

Hosted UC offerings can enable a small or midsize company to gain enterprise-class functionality and look bigger in their marketplace, thanks to the infrastructure of the cloud. What makes UC powerful is the seamless integration of several technologies.  UC connects internet based processes and tools with business applications.  It also consists of IP-based tools such as VOIP, web conferencing, and instant messaging.  The goal of UC is to simplify business processes and unify communications tools to enhance collaboration.  Hosted UC reduces the costs and complexity for businesses by delivering and managing these tools. 

 

So, what does all of this mean?  It means that with hosted UC your devices now have the capability to perform many of the same applications as your desktop PC.  Some of these capabilities include:

  • Accessing your corporate directory from your smartphone.

  • Reviewing business faxes from your tablet.

  • Checking on the progress of account managers and projects without making a phone call.

 

With hosted UC, the power of technology is in your hands.  Take advantage of the benefits of having remote access and the ability to work anywhere.  To learn more contact Pre-Tech.  Send us an e-mail or give us a call 855-600-8324.
