Distance should not be a barrier to business. When looking for key talent in today’s highly connected world, sometimes it makes sense to widen the net and considering bringing on remote employees. In order to build the right team it is becoming increasingly important for organizations to facilitate their employees’ ability to work remotely.
Offering flexibility through remote work comes with a variety of advantages.
Both the needs and the desires of America’s workforce are fundamentally changing. Certainly there are many jobs that cannot be done remotely, but every day we are creating more and more technology sector jobs that can be accomplished from a distance. When paired with the growing capabilities of the Cloud it’s a perfect storm where both the desires of the workforce and the technology needed to support them are in sync.
To dig deeper it makes sense to consider the pros and cons of 3 important technologies that facilitate working remotely: cloud environments, digital document management, and video conferencing software.
Recently DOMA ran an article about disaster-proofing important business data with secure document scanning and storage in the Cloud. Indeed, the Cloud is increasingly becoming the preferred method for businesses looking to store, access, and share important information, but it can do so much more to support remote work.
The Cloud provides for rapid access to flexible and low-cost IT resources with pay-as-you-go pricing. In addition to storage, cloud providers offer the on-demand delivery of compute power, database, applications, and other IT resources via the internet. With cloud computing, organizations don’t need to make large upfront investments in hardware and devote significant resources to learning and managing that hardware. With the Cloud you can access as many resources as you need, almost instantly, and only pay for what you use.
Ultimately, the Cloud is a powerful tool for business. Whether you just plan to dabble with minimal remote storage, or need to set up a complex hybrid environment to host all of your business data and applications it’s worth exploring what the Cloud has to offer. If you want to enable a remote workforce then to some degree, cloud services like online time cards, data and document storage, and cloud-based applications will be necessary.
There are several types of software that can be used in the Cloud to help organizations keep track, edit, and organize their data and documents. You may hear monikers like Electronic Content Management (ECM), Cloud Repository, Document Management Software, and Content Services Platform (CSP). In the end, these are are related and refer to the digital storage of information. Though these types of platforms have some functional differences, they all have the central purpose of helping your organization properly manage your data.
Electronic content management has the power to unify your organization and improve collaboration. Building and deploying an effective strategy, however, can be tricky. A good first step is ensuring that your business data is accessible in a centralized way and a content services platform can support that.
Many people are familiar with Skype or Facetime for personal use, but video conferencing can do a lot more than just virtually connect people. Video conferencing software can interface with your work calendars, allow for direct collaboration through live file sharing, and more. Host interactive webinars that offer live polling, interaction, and even track audience engagement with tools like Go-to-Webinar. Video conferencing can be set up to support massive audiences meaning no business is too big to benefit.
Ultimately, though Video Conferencing Platforms can require some set-up, they are worth it for the ability to have successful collaborations from anywhere.
