The Modern Workplace: Innovative Technology & Forward-Thinking Business Technology

The best professionals are always trying to do more with strategic IT, and as the business scene continues to change, it’s become clear that they’re on to something.

The great thing about the modern business scene is that professionals are always striving to do more with their resources. As technology continues to optimize the business space, many organizations hope to make their offices “modern workplaces.” However, we get the same question from professionals all the time: what exactly is the modern workplace?

When people hear ‘modern workplace,’ they usually think of a funky downtown office, cool furniture, all-day music, gourmet coffees, and all the best free snacks you could imagine. However, in the IT world, the modern workplace is not about an address in a trendy city district. For IT professionals, the modern workplace is all about driving optimization and business growth with strategic technologies.

Wondering What The Modern Workplace Is Really All About?

A common trap is believing that the modern workplace is just about getting the right technologies in place. For instance, many professionals believe that the modern workplace is simply about investing in innovative Cloud computing platforms like Microsoft Office 365 and Google’s G-Suite. These reliable and forward-thinking platforms are definitely great examples of modern workplace components. However, the modern workplace is more than just opting for Cloud technology.

Worthwhile modernization can’t happen without both technology and forward-thinking business strategy. The modern workplace is all about harnessing tech solutions like Office 365 and G-Suite in a way that helps cut ties to traditional IT systems altogether and take advantage of powerful cloud technologies to optimize operations. This means making use of strategic technologies in a way that increases flexibility and drives productive power.

Here’s the thing: the modern workplace is only worth investing in if it’s changing the way you get work done. The whole idea of tearing yourself away from traditional IT systems and outdated tech solutions is that you’ll experience the tangible benefits of streamlining modern technologies. Wondering what those benefits should look like? We’ve got you covered.

Strategic Advantages: Why You Should Make The Modern Workplace a Priority

If we’re honest, there are so many potential benefits of modernizing your workplace that it would be hard to list them all in one article. Most of all, though, the modern workplace is about giving your team all the things they need to work smarter, not harder. With the right technologies in place, your team will be ready to work more efficiently and dynamically than ever before. This means business moves more smoothly, less time is spent on tedious technical difficulties, and your team can stay focused on business growth. Keep reading to learn about some of the key ways a modern workplace could be a game-changer for your organization.

Streamlined Access To Resources 

Perhaps the best part about the modern workplace is that it offers streamlined access to business resources for you and your team. Harnessing Cloud solutions properly will allow you to centralize company data and ensure secure access for your team whenever they need it. This also means that work can get done around the clock – anytime, anywhere, and from any device.

You and your team members can access important files and business applications not only in the office but also from home, on the road, and even on vacation. Whether you’re at your desktop, on your laptop, or just checking in from a tablet or smartphone, the modern workplace is all about having an on-the-go, accessible, and secure virtual headquarters. This way, business is always within reach.

Improved Communication 

Another major benefit of the modern workplace is that channels of communication are improved and optimized. Since your teammates always have access to business resources, they’ll be better positioned to stay in close contact with each other and with clients. Cloud-based technologies allow you to stay in touch via a wide range of email, chat, and video and audio conferencing capabilities.

Need approval from a team member before moving forward on a project? Want to reach out to a client with an important question? Looking to verify order details with an important vendor? The modern workplace’s beauty is that your team, your customers, and your vendors can stay in touch seamlessly, and business opportunities are never missed.

Optimized Collaboration 

When it comes to teamwork and brainstorming, the modern workplace is designed for optimal collaboration. With the right strategic technologies in place, your team members will easily share ideas and spark inspiration – anytime, anywhere.

Are teammates constantly sending documents and spreadsheets back and forth to get jobs completed? Is working on proposals and projects a long and drawn-out process because team collaboration is an uphill battle? Modern workplace technologies put the power of collaborative work back in the hands of your hardworking team.

We recently started working with Neil and Jason after having a terrible experience with a prior IT company. They have been a true blessing! They are so easy to work with and their knowledge is outstanding! They jumped right in and got the business back up and secure again. They will be installing a new server for us and I am very excited to be able to sit back and not worry about whether it's going to be done correctly or not. They also pointed out several security issues that the prior company never mentioned. I look forward to our continued business with them! Thanks again guys!
