Will remote workforces become the new normal thanks to COVID-19?
How to maintain operations (and sanity) through work-from-home business resiliency solutions
From startups to global corporations, thousands of organizations across the country are scrambling to slow the spread of COVID-19 by setting up remote workforces. While some companies already have work-from-home measures in place, many are now mobilizing every employee so operations can continue seamlessly and securely from home.
As a technology solutions provider, we’ve been preparing companies for this very moment for decades. In fact, we recently pushed our own workforce home in just a day. During this busy time of upheaval and change, our clients have enjoyed 99.99% system uptime. This means nearly zero downtime or network disruption has been experienced by our clients as we move them to a remote workforce.
So, what are the steps to quickly move your business or nonprofit to work remotely and ensure business continuity?
Connect & Collaborate The first priority is ensuring everyone can stay connected through voice service and collaboration tools. At enkompas, we are a certified national partner for the RingCentral Platform. This cloud-based communication platform includes a phone system with unlimited central voice calling, text messaging, video conferencing, desktop sharing, fax and auto receptionist capabilities. Setup takes minutes and configuration is changed easily through admin access online.
Global Email & File Access Once your teams are able to communicate freely, it’s imperative to ensure everyone has access to the emails and files they need to get their jobs done. As a Microsoft Office Gold Partner and leading SharePoint Consultant, enkompas can establish email systems and SharePoint portals for the saving and sharing of all business emails, contacts, calendars and files—all safely and securely in the cloud.
Hosting & Connectivity To keep teams working and driving revenue, you want to maintain the integrity of your vital sales, financial and client data systems.
