With transportation and car-related expenses—on average—your employees are spending a thousand dollars a month in gas, insurance and vehicle maintenance. But, working remote comes with its own challenges. Does your business have what it takes to save your employees and your organization money while remaining productive and efficient? To get started, you’re going to need some help from managed services.

Communication

The Challenge | Whether you’re talking to your team or answering questions from your customers, communication makes up a significant portion of your day. It’s also the toughest challenge while working remotely. You need solutions that accommodate working from anywhere while providing the efficiency of working in the office.

The Solution | There are two main managed services that optimize your communications while working remotely.

Security

The Challenge | Mobile devices—especially off-site—increases risk of breaches, security gaps and downtime.

You need a solution designed to keep your business and customers protected.
