Over the last few years, many businesses have been forced to implement remote and hybrid working due to the coronavirus pandemic, however, as we emerge from the crisis, a number of businesses have decided to maintain this way of working after having seen the benefits it has to offer.
In this guide, we’ll be explaining how DMS can facilitate both office and home working with the ultimate hybrid working solutions.
What is Hybrid Working?
Hybrid working, also known as dispersed working, is when employees work across remote and on-site locations. This includes arrangements where some employees work from home full time, from the office or a combination of the two.
The Way We Work is Changing- Is Your Technology?
No matter how you choose to work, it is absolutely crucial that you facilitate it effectively via the implementation of suitable technology.
At DMS, we can provide full technology solutions for any home or office environment, ranging from small printers and portable laptops to more high performance desktop computers and floor standing multi functional devices (MFDs).
Technology Solutions for Hybrid Workers
The main goal for hybrid workers is to implement technology solutions that make splitting their work between their home and the office easier and provides a standardised working environment, regardless of where they choose to work each day.
Cloud Services for Hybrid Workers
One key solution that can help do this is by using cloud services. The cloud refers to large servers all over the world that can be accessed via the internet. Individuals or businesses can pay to store their data over the internet instead of on their computer's hard drive or keeping physical paper hard copies.
By storing data online your employees can access their saved work from any location, meaning they can create a document in the office one day and continue working on it from home the next day.
Cloud services also allow for greater collaboration between workers, allowing them to share documents and other data with each other on a shared network.
Multi-Functional Devices for Hybrid Workers
For those who work remotely, it is important to ensure their ability to print high quality documents isn’t impacted by sub-standard equipment that has been designed for regular basic domestic printing and copying.
At DMS, we can provide your employees with industry quality multi-functional devices suitable for a home environment. We will also ensure your devices stay up and running as they should, with remote support and full servicing available for preventative maintenance.
Oh, and when your employee’s ink and toner cartridges start to get low, we’ll receive a notification that alerts us to send out more resources, so you never have to worry about running out.
For office workers, multifunctional devices need to be able to work incredibly fast and reliably to ensure workers get their prints, copies and scans as quickly as possible. Nobody wants to stand around waiting hours for another worker to make 50 copies.
At DMS, we can provide rapid high quality MFDs for your office that offer a range of options such as scanning to email and intelligent printing, helping to minimise energy usage and keep costs down.
Bespoke Monthly Bundles
When you purchase lots of technology for your employees working both in the office and from home, you can end up with multiple contracts in place with various suppliers and different solutions from a variety of vendors- none of which work seamlessly together.
This results in a number of different contracts to manage and a mountain of invoices to process.
Fortunately, with DMS, we take care of all of your technology needs and provide bespoke monthly bundles.
For example, if you require 25 laptops for your hybrid workers, 40 desktop computers for your office workers, two multifunctional devices and cloud services, we can deliver all of these under one single contract at an affordable cost.
Our packages are also scalable, so if you find that you require more or less from us than you first required, we can easily adjust your plan.
