Remote Workforce Managed IT Services
Having a remote workforce is becoming a norm in these days of social distancing. COVID-19 has made us rethink how we conduct business, including the ways we operate and produce value.
With WFH (work from home) being forcefully implemented everywhere, businesses now face new challenges that simply didn’t exist before. Many organizations, because of their nature, never thought of sending their employees home and expect them to be productive in any way.
Yet, we have come to a time of adaptation to survive. Businesses that relied on employees working at site now have adapted to comply with the safety measures imposed by the virus that scourges our society today. Now, these same businesses are looking to grow with their teams at home.
Staying productive and on top of our game in this sort of condition demands us to be smart and resourceful. We need to make extraordinary use of technology, adjusting and implementing the best solutions in our favor. Only this way, we can create remote workflows that have the capacity to fully empower employees.
At My IT Guy, we have been helping our clients for years with their needs in IT. Now, the challenge has grown in size a little bit more. It’s now an absolute, pressing need for these same organizations to modernize even further in order to give their teams the right environment and toolset for them to be productive.
In this context, we are helping companies with the best remote workforce managed IT services. The results? We take care of the messy parts and allow organizations to focus on what they do best. This unavoidably increases their productivity and profitability levels, especially now with this much uncertainty and distraction.
Stay with us and discover how our remote workforce managed IT services can help you.
Having Allies During this Difficult Transition
This situation is not going to change for the better any time soon, unfortunately. This means that organizations have few options in this ongoing transition towards WFH. We need to adapt.
While many employees are currently coming back to their offices, others continue at home and they will remain that way for a while. Therefore, organizations need to create the right environment for these employees to thrive.
This forced migration has brought many challenges that we ignored before. Many are asking what are their best remote work technology options. Others ask about how they can work productively from home. Responsible organizations are asking how they can make remote workers thrive, despite the less than ideal circumstances.
The answer to all these questions is basically the same: properly implemented technology. This is something we achieve for our clients through remote workforce managed IT services.
In very simple terms, this is outsourcing your IT needs when it comes to remote work. Every organization has its own set of needs, so don’t expect a standardized service for everyone. Instead, each client receives a service that is tailored to its particular necessities and preferences.
For our clients, we set up secure, productive IT infrastructures that are fully compatible with remote work. This makes teams more effective even with heavy workloads.
Greater Security for the Challenge at Hand
Business IT infrastructures require the highest standards in cybersecurity. Data must be secured and protected at all costs for a plethora of reasons. Failing to do so may lead to major consequences for the organization. We have seen in recent years how scandals related to sensitive data have mined the field for growing, prosperous companies.
That’s why modern, conscious organizations invest adequately in network security. They isolate and fortify operative networks within their infrastructure. They monitor and analyze potential threats. They implement day-to-day mechanisms to protect employees’ accounts and control their privileges when it comes to accessing data.
Managed IT services have played a key role here. In the case of My IT Guy, our team has successfully provided managed IT services that have been defined by their cybersecurity standards, granting peace of mind to the client. They know they are always protected.
However, with the work from home transition, new threats have risen.
For decades now, corporate has faced a significant problem: employees using business devices and networks in irresponsible, careless ways. Browsing the Internet from corporate-owned devices without proper security practices. Clicking here and there without awareness regarding the risks for the company and themselves.
Reckless behavior online by employees have caused serious consequences for many organizations around the world. This has happened despite the cybersecurity technologies implemented by these companies.
Now imagine the increased risk of having employees working from home, using their home networks to access assets owned by the company. Most home networks aren’t secure enough because people simply don’t think of the potential, very real consequences. That’s why an additional layer of security is needed when having a remote workforce.
With remote workforce managed IT services, your business can relax on this flank. Our team takes care of the needed technologies to protect business networks from both internal and external threats.
With some employees probably even working from public places, such as coffee shops and coworking locations, businesses are definitely facing a major challenge. Here, using the right technologies becomes an absolute, pressing need.
At My IT Guy, we help you to protect your infrastructure with the best solutions available in the market. Your cloud storage and services will remain secure, accessible to the remote workers in a harmless fashion.
Managed IT Services that Guarantee Compliance
Security compliance continues to be a requirement in the days of COVID-19. Organizations cannot simply relax when it comes to regulations and frameworks. Authorities demand the best of us and despite the adverse scenario, we must comply.
Many businesses with remote workforces are using Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) for their daily operations. This technology can be highly productive and secure when properly implemented… and it should, as demanded by regulators.
Creating a flexible virtual environment for your remote workforce is the right way to go. Yet, it must meet security expectations. It must be stable and ready to keep data protected.
For a company that isn’t dedicated to IT and cybersecurity, doing this by itself can be too resource-demanding or directly impossible, stealing the focus on what is truly important. Here is where remote workforce managed IT services show their extraordinary value to businesses. Outsourcing with My IT Guy is the solution.
Optimum Communication for Remote Works
Without a doubt, the biggest challenge that remote teams are facing right now is effective communication.
Not sharing a physical space creates new dynamics in the way professionals communicate. Very quickly, solutions such as VoIP went from interesting to mandatory for businesses. Voice over Internet Protocol, just to give an example, is facilitating the life of remote workers as they now have a quick, flexible way to communicate. The same for organizations that more than ever before require to cut costs.
VoIP isn’t the only option to upgrade communication, of course. At My IT Guy, we always encourage our clients to make a successful transition to cloud services that skyrocket productivity for everyone involved. Solutions such as Microsoft Office 365 and G Suite for Business are outstanding game-changers for organizations in the search for greater efficiency and results.
This is especially true in the age of COVID-19. We, as businesses, need to empower our employees with the right tools for them to excel in their jobs. A big part of that is the proper means to communicate. Traditional email isn’t enough. Fortunately, the options are plenty.
Guidance Now You Need It the Most
For some professionals, remote work feels natural. For others, it is a dreadful task, an experience they don’t desire as it seems complex and too demanding. However, this sentiment comes from inexperience and lack of resources.
Many of the organizations going through the WFH transition don’t have the resources to train their professionals for this new challenge. They simply don’t know how to make WFH easier for them. And believe us when we say that it is in your best interest to make the transition easy for your employees as this will probably define their productivity levels when working at home.
The same applies to security. Do your workers understand how to protect and secure business assets when working from home? Do you know how to accomplish this?
Training and guidance are quintessential parts of this process. There can not be a successful transition to remote work without knowing the right information.
Therefore, our remote workforce managed IT services also take care of this problem. We help your workers to understand how to use adequately, safely, and productively all the professional resources at their disposal when operating from home.
The team behind My IT Guy has been providing awareness training for years to large organizations. We help the remote workforce how to do their best job possible while taking good care of the organization’s assets.
