REDUCE TIME SPENT MANAGING IT ASSETS
For many companies, managing IT assets consumes a great deal of time and generates a great deal of stress, removing the opportunity for IT teams to focus on more important initiatives. A great first step to unlocking the value of focus for your team is to reconsider the thought process behind your video conferencing strategy. Acquiring IT assets isn’t a one-and-done process – and thinking of it in this way can become problematic further down the line.
HELP EMPLOYEES FIND DEEPER FOCUS AND GREATER INDEPENDENCE IN THEIR DAY
Purpose-built personal collaboration tools help employees, too. With 9 in 10 companies seeing increased employee demand for IT support and better equipment, optimizing the video conferencing experience for ease and comfort can enhance employee wellbeing and productivity. This works when a simple experience minimizes cognitive effort spent on dealing with technical difficulties, boosting their productivity by allowing them to focus on what they do best in turn – and alleviating some of the pressure on IT by reducing the amount of tickets staff will raise when struggling with new tools. Your staff will feel confident and comfortable in conducting video meetings, and your well-being at work will
improve as a result.
But it’s not all about improving productivity. With staff no longer 100% office-based and many working remotely from different locations, it can be challenging to ensure an equitable meeting experience where everyone is seen, heard, and presented in their best light regardless of where or how they work – especially when everyone is operating on a different set-up. This diversity in equipment makes managing solutions more complicated too, from devices and software being incompatible, to troubleshooting unfamiliar tools over the phone. Fortunately, there’s an easy way around this. By curating a collection of key personal collaboration tools, you can put your employees on equal footing while catering to their unique needs and making your business’s suite of tools easier to manage for IT.
