The benefits of remote working:
- Work remotely, anytime, any location
- Run your business software, regardless of the device
- Save money and time
- Enjoy work-life balance
Remote working can be defined as;
"Employees operating away from an employer's place of business. This could be on the road at home or overseas. It may also be considered as employees who work in outreach or branch/satellite offices that are away from the main IT infrastructure where support, applications and data reside, typically head office."
With advances in internet speed and cloud computing, working away from the office no longer means any loss in productivity. With remote working, video conferencing and social media it's now possible to do anything you could do in the office, anywhere anytime from any location.
How remote working is improved by Cloud computing
Cloud computing means all of your files are stored in a secure data centre, which you connect to via the internet, whether your in the office, at home, or out and about. All of your programs and applications can also be housed in the data centre, rather than being installed on an office device. This means you can access them anywhere regardless of what device you are using. There's no need to worry about purchasing additional licenses or software on all of your devices, no more emailing documents to yourself or carrying around flash drives. Cloud computing makes remote working a breeze.
