Is Your workforce ‘Remote-Ready’?
In the coming days and weeks, more and more Australians will be asked to work remotely to help contain and mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As we all come to grips with this new reality, now is the time to get prepared. Is your business, and are your staff, remote-ready?
Your first priority will be the safety of your workforce, but for many organisations, it’s not as simple as telling staff to work at home on a laptop. For a start, there are security concerns that need to be addressed; is their technology going to pose a threat to, or add to the workload of, your IT team and systems? For that matter, some staff might not even have access to a suitable device.
Providing grab-and-go Chromebooks could be the solution you need right now. Compared to many portable devices, Chromebooks are cost-effective and at a time when the bottom line is more uncertain than ever before, this is an important consideration. The Chrome platform has been designed for commercial use at scale and enables collaboration, enhances productivity and can be centrally managed, putting your IT team in charge of your fleet of devices no matter where they are.
With Chrome, you can:
* Provision and deploy devices simply and with urgency
* Enable Google Safe Browsing
* Manage devices remotely from a central dashboard
* Provide technical support with Chrome Remote Desktop
* Preload apps, extensions and bookmarks, and other important settings and tools
We are here to help keep your remote workforce productive and hope that the following resources will help enable your people as the current workplace landscape shifts like never before:
