How to establish a digitally optimised office

Technology makes sense in an office when it helps to improve its productivity and efficiency. Only in this case may it be referred to as a properly digitalised office. For it to be so, different initiatives must be implemented in order to change from analogue and traditional tools to more digital systems, which are much more in line with today’s reality.

Fortunately, there are many solutions with which to encourage a company’s digitalisation. It is first best to know what we require from it and what goal needs to be achieved, as introducing new technologies aimlessly does not lead to a company’s digitalisation. Quite the opposite in fact: it represents an unnecessary cost and a mistaken way of approaching the business. It is therefore necessary to remember that any implementation made requires a purpose in order for it to have a positive impact on the company’s performance.

Many initiatives do, however, have a positive impact in most companies. Implementing video-conferencing, for example, rather than holding on-site meetings. This can entail solutions such as Skype or Hangouts, which cover any video-conferencing need. Taking this step means more convenient and efficient connections with our customers and partners and also saves time and resources. It also makes it possible to connect with potential customers worldwide.

Another measure most companies could adopt is using digital chats to establish internal communications among employees. Here, when choosing one service or another, it is a good idea to ensure that the tool can also be used to exchange files and documents, as the objective of implementing such measures is not only to converse, but also to have a more complete work tool.

Another increasingly necessary step is to use cloud services to store the whole of a company’s documentation. This measure will streamline work processes and enhance company security.

In short, these are smart measures and actions that can be taken by most companies, whatever sector they operate in, and that establish more efficient work mechanisms, offices more suited to today’s needs and solutions that yield new business perspectives that would be impossible otherwise.
