Join us at Dolby where thought leaders are coming together to discuss how best of breed technologies can be brought together to transform the digital workplace

Digital transformation is redefining what we think about our place of work…

Digital transformation has stalled

In many companies, digital transformation has stalled, the technology used is no more advanced than it was ten years ago. Poor quality conference call bridges, a reluctance to use video calls, AV equipment that never connects are all daily experiences we can relate to.

Connectivity has slowed

In a mobile-first modern workplace connectivity is the lifeblood that carries the data throughout the systems but workers enjoy faster connectivity at home than they do on the corporate LAN. The UK’s average domestic broadband runs to 54Mbps but many offices are still aggregating all of the traffic through a 100Mbps connection.

Productivity has been lost

Lost productivity is not just an annoyance; it has a cost. A recent study showed that UK workers lost 11 days a year through poor technology. An increasingly mobile workforce through flexible working makes this even more problematic. The use of collaboration tools has become an essential part of the modern workplace.

Security risks have increased

Enabling guests, visiting staff and BYOD to connect to the Wi-Fi introduces risk. This means there is a need for balance between the security risks that granting wider access brings and enabling people to connect quickly and simply.

But It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way…

Businesses can deliver a modern workplace with collaboration and communication tools fit for 2020 and beyond and without breaking the bank.

Creating an excellent business user experience that satisfies even the most demanding internal customer is now relatively simple but it still is not a one size fits all solution, it is not even a one company fits all solution; it can only be achieved by combining the best of breed technologies mapped to use cases and user personas.

As IT services are increasingly consumed “as-a-service” the desire for greater flexibility has led to changes for all the workforce. Work is no longer a place you go; it is a thing you do.

Businesses need to embrace digital transformation and the technology that will create the modern workplace, embracing flexibility and collaboration, in order to attract and keep workers in roles as well as enjoy the efficiencies that technology brings. Efficient and reliable collaboration tools, video conferencing and AV set-ups that can create a successful, transparent and inspiring working environment within an ever increasing mobile workforce.

Collaboration Tools, Video Conferencing, Audio Visual, Network, Wi-Fi & Mobile connectivity and of course Security – why you need a coherent joined up approach.

Why not read our whitepaper titled Digital Transformation in Action to give a broad view of how challenging the modern workplace can be and how you can overcome these challenges to drive greater efficiencies.
