Empower your employees with Cloud Workspace options
While people retreat to their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, cloud workspace options are quickly becoming a necessity. Now is the time for small and mid-sized businesses to embrace the benefits of a cloud-based workspace. However, this investment doesn’t simply offer a short-term gain; a digital transformation can positively impact a business’ operations far beyond this current health crisis.
In this article, we’ll explore some of the key reasons why and how cloud workspace options boost productivity, collaboration, and efficiency.
Today’s Employees Need Flexibility and 24/7 Access to Their Workplace Tools
Most businesses’ employees are already working on their personal phones, tablets, and laptops. Unfortunately, many employers have been slow to implement comprehensive remote work options.
In a 2017 survey, VMware and Forbes Insights polled 2,000 CIOs and frontline employees to assess their perspectives and approaches to digital transformation and cloud workspace implementation. The survey found that only 18% of businesses had converted to a fully digital environment. 59% were “transitioning,” and 29% still used traditional office-centered systems.
Discover the Benefits of Cloud Workspaces
Some businesses are concerned that remote work will lead to distractions, decreased productivity, and less communication, they’re usually mistaken. Research suggests that most companies that implement a cloud workspace see substantial benefits.
Modern employees don’t think of “work” as a brick-and-mortar place; it’s a state of mind and an activity. They don’t always need to huddle around a conference table to whiteboard ideas. Instead, many of them prefer using applications to collaborate and share ideas online. Cloud workspace options make this information-sharing easier and more secure.
When businesses leverage cloud workspaces, their applications and software are available through the cloud, allowing their team to access them safely from any device and any location. They can share applications, data, and ideas in real-time — no matter the circumstances. Notably, VMware’s survey noted a 16% increase in collaboration and decision-making speed when companies adopted cloud workspaces.
