How to Maximize Business Efficiencies in North Carolina
At Appalachian Network Services, we’re passionate about productivity tools for local small businesses. Cutting-edge technology is no longer reserved for large corporations alone. Today’s innovative tools are redefining how small businesses streamline operations, keep hybrid teams connected and boost productivity. Let’s take a look at some of the technologies, applications and strategies driving digitization, strengthening security and increasing efficiencies.
Keep Remote and Onsite Staff Connected with Cloud Computing Solutions
More and more businesses are leaving slow, rigid legacy hardware behind and embracing the flexibility, reliability and security of cloud services. These service-based platforms offer a multitude of modern business advantages at one predictable monthly fee.
Do you think your employees have access to what they need when they need it? If you’re not sure, consider cloud computing solutions to boost communication, decrease downtime and ramp up resources on demand.
Cloud Computing Solutions:
- Enhance collaboration. Keep remote and onsite staff connected to important documents and each other — anytime, anywhere.
- Provide business continuity. Most cloud computing and storage options use a multi-pronged approach and store data off-site in multiple locations. That’s important when it comes to backup and recovery. Most cloud computing services provide uptime guarantees as well.
- Scale easily. It’s easy to scale storage and bandwidth resources up or down as business needs change.
For help deciding on a deployment model, implementation and management, speak with a local managed services provider experienced in cloud computing solutions.
Drive Team Collaboration with Microsoft 365 Applications
Popular apps like Teams, Word, PowerPoint and Excel offer all the productivity tools your team needs to stay connected and work efficiently. At home, on the road or in the office, this cloud-based solution gives staff anytime/anywhere access to company documents so business gets done.
Do your technology solutions help your employees do their job from wherever they work? If you’re hesitating, consider Microsoft 365 applications to boost team collaboration and support anytime, anywhere productivity.
Microsoft 365 Applications Provide:
- Real-time document-sharing video conferencing
- Anytime, anywhere access to important apps and documents
- Award-winning, user-friendly apps
- Automated workflows
Before you choose a Microsoft 365 solution, consider consulting with a local managed services provider. They can help you choose the right subscription, migrate data and provide ongoing tech support.
Tablet as a Tool
If you think tablets are just for gaming and scrolling through various social media pages, you’re wrong.
Tablets are affordable, easy to use and easy to carry. They also come in handy during meetings, whether you are taking or recording notes, presenting or suddenly need to send an email. And as more companies shift toward a remote environment, tablets allow employees to access files, update blogs and/or websites, and receive and send messages from anywhere that has an internet connection — and don’t require as much space as a laptop.
All tablets feature touchscreens but also work with keyboards, allowing employees to mimic an office-like workspace whether they’re sitting under an umbrella at the beach or finishing up a report before hopping on a flight.
