Cloud computing can help set up flexible working
Cloud computing is likely to be on many firms’ agendas in the next few days as panic-buying has left petrol stations across the UK empty of fuel.
With many workers’ commutes thrown into doubt, the prospect of half-empty offices is an extreme but viable concern for employers.
However, there is no reason why many might not be able to establish flexible working arrangements, even at relatively short notice.
If you already have an intranet system, it could be fairly easy to allow external access for approved individuals, as well as to set up collaborative working on files such as Microsoft Office documents.
Doing so has the added benefit that you can demonstrate clear willing to give your workforce access to the flexible working conditions they are now entitled to request.
At Symitry Business we can help you to understand whether your server is capable of supporting cloud computing and what the likely additional strain on your IT infrastructure will be.
We offer on-site Microsoft Office training that can prepare your workforce for using documents in new, collaborative ways – even across multiple locations.
And we can also provide secure remote online backup for your most sensitive documents, so that you know they are safely archived for the long term.
