One of the most popular words of 2020 was ‘remote’. While remote control devices have always been popular, there’s a new kind of remote in town. The state of work has seen a new trend emerge: remote working. The pandemic sent most of us scrambling to IKEA to establish a new home-based office. We learned how to adapt and create new routines to work from home and in some cases, we ended up home for longer than we wanted.
Amidst the chaos an interesting revelation arose – we realised we can work just as well in our comfy slippers and a shirt. Thanks to technology platforms, we embraced online tools to connect with our teams and get things done. Figuring out what tech stack you need in order to work from home and Software as a Service (SaaS) is a big reason why.
SaaS applications are cloud-based services where you don’t need to install any software on your device. This means you can access your solution from anywhere you have internet. SaaS has revolutionized how and where we are able to work, helping us prepare for the big work from home movement. Thanks to SaaS communication solutions (among others), work life continued with a few small bumps in the road.
Of course working from home isn’t all sunshine and roses. Naturally, questions arise about long-term remote productivity. Slow or unstable internet connections, clunky application loading speeds, the security of non-managed networks (home or public), and the demand of learning new software are a few key issues. Keeping things ‘business as usual’ in highly unusual times was a top priority for businesses throughout 2020.
Communication and collaboration software have been stealing the spotlight with video conferencing and corporate intranet leading the way. Many companies have begun switching as many of their applications to SaaS delivery to accommodate the workforce at home. It’s also a strategic decision that will boost productivity in the case of any other unexpected workplace disruptions.
