How to Setup a Distributed Team for Success | Part 2

Creating Efficiencies for Distributed Teams with Managed Services

In part 1 of this 3-part blog series we explored the benefits of Unified Communications. For part 2, we will dive into efficiencies that come from using Managed Services.

Planning as though your entire workforce is remote can help to create the most opportunity with managed services from anywhere.

In an office setting securing corporate assets is a given and it is also an important aspect to remember with employees working from home too. To maximize business efficiencies, managing office and remote employees should be the same amount of effort for an IT department. 

This synergy is possible with good planning and foresight with Managed Services solutions. These services can easily streamline IT efforts and provide the business with the ability to secure corporate assets in a remote environment the same way you would secure them if directly on your network.

When choosing Managed Services solutions it’s important to also remember to find a solution that does not require your IT department to manage the network from an office. Planning as though your entire workforce is remote, can help to create the most opportunity with managed services from anywhere. 

While there are some upfront costs associated with implementing a managed solution, these costs are quickly recovered by operational efficiencies through time savings and reduced security risks. It only takes one expensive and highly-functioning employee unable to work for a day or one security breach to cover any additional set-up costs associated with a managed solution.
