Wherever I lay my laptop, that’s my workspace

Hybrid working is set to be a major business trend in the second half of this year, and Wave Office can help employers ensure they have the right equipment for this.

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way many people work, with home working increasingly significant. These changes look set to stay as we move towards a post-pandemic phase, with many people wanting to work at home for at least some of the time.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that of those currently working from home, 85% want to use a ‘hybrid’ approach of both home and office working in future. This means that hybrid working is set to become increasingly common and presents opportunities to dealers.

For instance, while mobile ‘phones, webcams and high-speed internet connections continue to offer seamless communication between home and base, access to information is a concern. “Employees are looking for solutions to have business continuity between work and home, through shared online access to documents and paperwork,” says Andrew Cowling, senior channel marketing specialist at PFU (EMEA) Ltd – a Fujitsu company.

“Paper-based information can be stored in filing cabinets, desks, storage boxes and archives, which makes it difficult to share and access. Moving documents between home and work also increases the risk of loss, damage or theft, increasing the risk of data loss and potential of fines.

“Scanning these documents unlocks their potential, allowing the digital information to be shared on mobile devices, tablets and PCs – enabling access whenever, and wherever they are required. This also offers the combined benefits of being able to organize, analyze, search and share information, quickly and easily, saving time and money whilst improving efficiency for customers. Wave Office can educate customers on scanning benefits in order to help open up this market opportunity.”
