Is your team ready to return to the office?

Returning to the office

Now that a sense of normality is slowly starting to approach, with normal life planned to begin again in a few short months time, a lot of people are questioning their work arrangements.

Whether employees are working back in the office full-time, working flexibly between different locations or still solely working from home, now is the time to be thinking about the next steps and what the future has to hold for your organisation.

Employees need flexibility to work

As lockdown is planned to come to an end, that doesnt mean that any IT issues that have been lurking about will be coming to an end too! They wont magically resolve themselves once your team returns to the office.

In fact, once things do begin to get back to a sense of somewhat normality, chances are the demands on your IT systems will be greater than ever!

Remember back in March 2020 when the way of working had to change almost overnight? At the time, some businesses struggled to get to grips with remote working and similar issues will be prominent once teams are once again fully functional from the office.

Quite rightly, teams will expect the best and most efficient IT systems, whether theyre working remotely, from the office, or a mixture of both.

Turning a blind eye to any ongoing or potential issues, hoping the end of lockdown will solve them, is an extremely risky business strategy. Not only would it result in not being as productive as possible, staff would also get fed-up and begin to look for other career opportunities where they can be at their best which includes having the best equipment and capability too!

What this means for your equipment

Where to start? Stop what youre doing, review your systems and what you need from them, then speak to the team of experts at Extech Cloud.

At Extech Cloud, weve seen time and time again where business IT systems are locked down due to a reluctance to change practices.

We completely understand why as a business owner, you might not want to change a thing. You might believe that things are working as they are – so why fix something if it isnt broken?

To put it simply, if you carry on doing what youve done in previous years, youre not going to get anything different. Systems wont magically improve themselves overnight! However, once you do put plans into place for an Extech Cloud IT transformation, you will see results and be able to see a real return on your investment.

Dont be scared – a talk with Extech Cloud doesnt have to be anything big. You wont have to make any solid plans, we prefer to have an informal chat about your business, your systems and see where we could help you to make significant improvements. Whats more, were more than happy to have a completely confidential chat to begin with so no toes are stepped on!

How to be more efficient through the Cloud

If you commit to a full cloud transition, where services are integrated within the cloud, you will enable your business to utilise all capabilities that are available for them and reap the benefits. This means all applications in the cloud, even the ones that others say cant be in the cloud.

Moving to the cloud will help you best meet your business service level. Busier than ever? You can ramp up your service level. On the other hand, having a quiet period? Turn things down for a bit. The cloud helps you to meet your level of demands and importantly, you pay for only what you need, when you need it.
