Out with the Old, in with the New Cloud and Managed Technology

The average workplace can be a money pit with unhappy employees who, in turn, produce unsatisfied customers and create a workplace disaster. The key to improving your business is by empowering your employees to work how they want to and using technology that enhances operations. With the cloud, you can give your team the freedom they desire, and with managed technology, you have the latest equipment and technology with minimal investment.

The use of cloud workplace solutions and managed IT separate the top-performing companies from their less-efficient competitors. Businesses deciding to stick with the old office model often find themselves dealing with cumbersome problems and the high costs associated. Issues such as phones needing to be programmed or reprogrammed, system crashes, and broken equipment can put undue stress on both a facility's IT manager and their team. It leads to more overworked employees, who must deal with the brunt of all the repairs, replacements, and maintenance. But when it comes to old workplace strategies, the worst of them all, micromanaging. A tactic that, let's face it, does not work. It has been proven time and time again, it only drives frustrations and poisons the workplace environment.

These old, antiquated tactics hurt operations more than it helps. Advanced solutions like managed technology services and the use of cloud technology let companies simplify and streamline operations. While combining them with software-as-a-service (SaaS) and workplace-as-a-service (WaaS) can increase ROI and revenue. However, more importantly, they make the lives of your team more manageable and make work more effective. Creating a modern workplace means digitizing your business, which not only improves employee satisfaction but also creates a more agile business and saves tons of money in the process.
