Digital Workspace for Business Continuity
A digital workspace is an integrated technology framework designed to deliver and manage applications, data, and desktop delivery on a single platform. It gives your employees a choice in how, where, and when they work—before, during, and after a planned or unexpected business disruption.
The potential consequences for any type of disruption include:
- 69.3% loss in productivity
- 41.4% increase in customer complaints
- 39.5% increase damage to reputation
It is always crucial to have an effective digital workspace solution in place. Here are three more important reasons why.
A flexible work schedule is a top benefit of a digital workspace for both employees and employers alike. When 2,500 workers were asked what the biggest benefit to remote working in the 2019 “State of Remote Work” report by Buffer, 40% answered “a flexible work schedule”.
A virtual workspace gives employees the flexibility they need and companies the ability to respond immediately and efficiently to any unforeseen event. Our cloud-hosted virtual app and desktop solutions can be deployed at any time within a few hours—so your employees can work from anywhere on any device and scale business resources as needed.
Maintain productivity during business disruption
Any loss in productivity during a business disruption can be prevented with an effective digital workspace strategy. It has been shown remote workers are 25% more productive than employees who work in an office.
A virtual desktop solution in place as part of a solid, future-proof business continuity plan simplifies the transition from office to remote work. How? Virtual apps and desktops are engineered to maintain necessary levels of security and control over user access to your corporate resources, behind the scenes doing the work for you—a critical component of any workspace.
Increases employee retention
Eighty percent of workers today would choose a job that offered flexible working over one that didn’t and 30 percent value being able to choose their work location more than extra vacation time. If your business is serious about competing for top talent you need to give employees a digital workspace that allows them to work from any location, on any device, at any time.
A digital workspace solution will also help your business survive any type of disruption and thrive post-incident by giving your employees a choice in how, where, and when they work so they can continue to communicate and collaborate effectively at all times—a necessity for the continued success of any business.
