Homebased working

Key challenges adopting remote working

Shifting to home working has presented organisations with many challenges, including:

  • No time to plan and prepare for the transition
  • Limited systems, devices and processes in place to allow home working
  • Unprepared for the extra load on systems that enable home working
  • Limited in-house support to deal with home working issues
  • Lack of knowledge around the full capabilities of business productivity apps and services

Tactical solutions to get your remote working off the ground

We can help with a range of tactical virtual desktop solutions that can help you to:
