IT services are more critical than ever before, proving their value in the face of a health crisis and the abrupt shift to remote working. Here are some ways managed IT services providers (MSPs) are helping small companies leverage technology to support their remote teams and go about business as usual.
Despite businesses’ reservations, remote working comes with numerous benefits, including lower overhead expenses and improved productivity. And with the coronavirus pandemic forcing employees to work from home, this might just be the tipping point for remote work to become the norm.
Working from home increases employee autonomy, cuts costs, and ensures the health and safety of the company during the coronavirus pandemic. The problem is, it also increases the likelihood of security breaches since employees are working outside the company’s security perimeter.
With COVID-19 now a full-blown pandemic, it’s increasingly important to stay up to date with the latest news and developments. The same applies to organizations worldwide — management and staff need to be able to communicate effectively to avoid misunderstandings that could prove fatal to operations in this time of crisis.
