Home Office Solutions

Work and learn productively from anywhere

With growing concerns around COVID-19, we’re seeing an immediate rise in the mobile workforce. 56% of employees, have a job that could be done remotely1. If members of your workforce fall into this category or are being forced to adapt anyway, it’s likely you’re researching how to quickly set them up for success in a home office. While IT teams around the country are under the pump to quickly deliver suitable systems to keep businesses connected, Data#3 is here to help with a variety of ‘work from home’ solutions.

 

 

Save yourself from panic buying

Although it may be tempting to run out to your local retail store and madly buy devices for your employees, panic buying will lead to all sorts of asset management and security headaches down the line. In testing times, remain true to your policies and procedures, and purchase commercial grade hardware that is fit for purpose for your team.

Data#3 has a variety of work from home bundles, with hardware that delivers your SOE, applications and meets enterprise security requirements. Not only that, but as a prioritised Tier 1 partner of HP and Microsoft, and the largest Australian reseller of both vendors, we can help facilitate buffer stock for our customers.

Tech tips for a productive home office:

1. Choose a mobile device – Consider a laptop as the best device for mobility and collaboration; with built-in microphone, speakers and webcam for video conferencing calls.

2. Don’t forget a dock – Having a dock or a docking monitor makes moving between offices and home easy. A dock both powers your laptop, gives you additional ports for accessories and extends display to monitors.

3. Have a great headset – Set your team up with a collaboration tool like Cisco Webex or Microsoft teams, so they can easily join a meeting remotely with video-calling. Make sure they’ve got a headset that delivers the best microphone and sound quality, your average pair of earpods won’t cut it for noisy home environments.

4. Extend to a second monitor – A second monitor improves productivity for workers using multiple programs at once. It’s also better for your health, if it’s adjusted to the right height.

5. Stay connected securely – Keep your employees connected to their organisation, and their work. Solutions like HPE Aruba Virtual Intranet Access (VIA) or Cisco Meraki provide secure access to employee laptops from a home office or a mobile hotspot.

With growing concerns around COVID-19, many schools are closing, or currently reviewing their learning continuity plans. No matter how great your LMS or collaboration tools are, they quickly become redundant if your students and teachers aren’t set up with the right devices to facilitate learning.

Microsoft Surface devices are intuitive, high-performance tools that give educators and students the power and freedom to work securely, anywhere, anytime.
