As the coronavirus , also known as COVID-19, spreads around the world, many companies are asking their employees to work from home. Throughout China, Italy , Japan and South Korea workers have been in lockdown mode. Large tech companies in the US, such as Facebook and Microsoft , have told employees there to remain home. Here in the UK, companies such as Google, JP Morgan and Twitter have released plans to combat COVID-19 that include compulsory working from home .
With millions more people around the world no longer going to the office to work, it’s clear that the coronavirus is putting remote work to a massive test , and at a completely unprecedented scale. Having more employees working away from the office is having an impact on the tools that many companies use to coordinate and communicate while apart.
Switching to a remote work set-up isn’t always easy , especially for smaller companies or those that aren’t up to date with their remote tech.

What’s needed for remote working to be an efficient and effective alternative to working from the office is intelligent tooling, as the need to communicate successfully is paramount. You need smart, joined-up systems that deliver a frictionless experience for all involved. So for example, employees should be able to use video conferencing tools as an alternative to face-to-face meetings.
Moreover, security is of utmost importance when it comes to remote working, as company-sensitive data and email need to be protected. Mobile devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones need to be set up for secure remote access to all corporate applications. And don’t forget that your corporate cloud services should be perfectly set up so there are no unforeseen remote data storage issues.
