So much has changed since last March. Do you remember working in an actual office space? The one with desk phones, conference rooms and tables for gathering at lunchtime? It almost seems like a lifetime ago… Because as soon as that pandemic took over our lives, you (and your entire organization) had to pivot. And quickly!
Your employees picked up their laptops and left the building. They set up on the couch, the floor, the dining room table — whatever space was available — and got to work. And while the number of daily virtual meetings and web conferences exploded, you rolled out whatever communication tools would get your people connected as fast as possible.
Too Many Platforms
Before you know it, you’ve got a sloppy mix of platforms cobbled together to address all your needs: Skype, Slack, Zoom, Google Hangouts… While these quick-fix solutions helped get your teams up and running at the beginning of the pandemic, they’re only partial solutions to a long-term trend. Experts expect that working from home (even if only part of the time) will outlast the pandemic itself.
If that’s the case, you’re going to want to find a better, more all-inclusive solution. Forget the fragmented workflows, reinforced siloes and lagging productivity that comes from jumping between platforms. Your organization needs a communication and collaboration solution that is unified across the board. So let’s talk about Cisco Webex.
A Simple Solution
Cisco Webex is a Unified Communications solution that meets all of your collaboration needs, from calling and chatting to meetings and whiteboarding. With this easy-to-use platform, you get a consistent user experience so your employees are more satisfied, engaged and productive.
It’s about getting work done from anywhere, on any device. You may be trying to wait it out, hoping that your collection of applications will keep your team going until you get back to the office. I hate to break it to you, but the hybrid workforce is here to stay. Frankly, a unified platform like Webex is the only thing that’ll guarantee your organization’s ability to keep connecting, communicating and collaborating, no matter what lies ahead.
Work on Webex
The pandemic didn’t just change the way we bought toilet paper, it also changed the way we work. No doubt, your fully-remote set up right now isn’t going to be more than a phase. But employees have adapted to the flexibility and a lot of people like it. Expect to see hybrid workforces become the new norm.
This hybrid arrangement means new complexities in the way your entire organization communicates and collaborates. While we don’t know how long it will take to get people back into the office on a more regular basis, we can safely assume that new tools will be needed to make the adjustment.
