Businesses are investing more than ever on the devices their employees need to perform their work. But what is the overall cost and how do your device management choices affect the business?
The most successful businesses bring together people with different skill sets and different life experiences to create a unique company identity, fusing a wide spectrum of knowledge, attitudes and intuition and into a single coherent voice.
They also look to do the same thing with the hardware and software that supports the work their people do, creating a synergy between humans and machines that allows them to outperform the competition.
Old and outdated devices and software can contribute significantly to slowing the progress of work, preventing your people from performing at their best and adversely affecting your company’s reputation amongst its customers.
That’s why you should always be looking to stay one step ahead, because the technology is constantly evolving and it’s just sound business sense to invest in the latest innovations to help maximise your productivity, collaboration, connectivity and security.
Trust us, the most successful businesses are already upgrading.

5 biggest challenges facing business in 2022.
Every business is different. But according to the experts at eCommerce Fastlane there are some challenges that we’re all going to face to a greater or lesser degree as business looks to come back even stronger from the uncertainty of the last couple of years.
We all need to stay flexible - Identify opportunities to stay flexible in the months ahead. Offer employees the choice to work from home to improve satisfaction and minimise risk. Allow time in your calendars for disruption. Improve communication with suppliers to stay up to date with any shortage issues. Remember that weather events and pandemic spikes can cause disruption with little warning.
Security remains a major issue - Talk to a cybersecurity expert from Softsource vBridge about where your business may be vulnerable. Educate your employees about the security measures that they should be taking. Try to implement two-factor authentication and password generators. Upgrade to new software and update regularly.
Customer satisfaction is crucial – If you don’t already have one, create a dedicated customer service and satisfaction position. Make it easy for customers and clients to contact you with any queries. Prioritise prompt response times. Monitor your social media channels for any interaction, good or bad.
Your online presence is vital - Redesign your website to reflect your skills, expertise, and company ethos. Install an AI chatbot that will engage visitors on arrival and keep them on your page for longer. Create content for your website that is SEO-driven. Employ a social media officer to manage your social channels.
Make employee health a priority - Create clear channels where employees can raise concerns and health issues. Stay up to date with emerging issues. Encourage employees to monitor their working hours, especially if they are remote working, to avoid the issue of burnout. Find out what you can provide for employee mental health support.
