Delivering Exceptional IT Service To Your Remote Workforce

Today’s business landscape requires more flexibility for you and your employees than ever before. For reasons spanning from Safety to Employee Satisfaction to competitive positioning, having remote work solutions is a crucial option. Setting up a remote workforce may seem like an overwhelming task, or it may seem straight forward, but can you afford to miss key functionality in a remote environment? This is where we come in.

Tech Direct 2 U will ensure all your remote business needs are met, and you can be confident that your employees have all the tools they need, and your customers can be confident that all their information is secure.

What Does It Take To Set Up A Remote Working Environment?

Do you know what technology you need to service your business? When working with an IT support company like us, we help you set up and maintain the following (and more):

  • Computers and Laptops
  • Secure Networking and VPN
  • Communications Tools like Email, Softphones, and File Sharing
  • Meeting Planning and Video Conferencing Tools
  • Project Management Tools
  • Secure Cloud Systems
  • Software and Licenses

Computers and Laptops

Computing needs for a remote workforce often require more care than those used in a controlled office environment. Are you considering having your workforce use their own devices? Or perhaps you might have your employees take devises that were designed for in person office use. Neither of these options are a good solution. Tech Direct 2 U can set you up with computers and laptops that meet the requirements of your business and your employees’ tasks and responsibilities.

Personal laptops cannot be trusted to meet the requirements of your business. Do you want to hope your employee’s personal computer has the necessary security, software, storage, processing power, and network capabilities to manage your business? No, so let us help you.

We can set you up with all of your computing needs:

  • Desktops and Laptops
  • Docking Stations
  • Monitors
  • Accessories like Mice, Keyboards, Signature Pads, etc.
  • Printers and Scanners

Secure Networking and VPN

Secure network solutions are more crucial today than ever before. As a business, you can control the network your employees when they are in your office, but it is not easy to ensure they are providing the same level of security at home. Tech Direct 2 U can work with you to ensure your data is secure and your employees can connect to the information they need. We can establish things like VPNs, firewalls, and network monitoring to provide you with peace of mind and tangible security for your business.

Communications Tools like Email, Softphones, and File Sharing

Communication is probably the most important function a business needs to be successful. Whether it is contacting customers or working with coworkers, without the necessary tools to effectively communicate, your business will be at a standstill. We can manage your email network, set up a Voice over IP phone system (or Softphone) to ensure that you maintain the same level of communication as if you were in a central office, and allow easy information sharing with file management systems.

Meeting Planning and Video Conferencing Tools

Today, you have a lot of options of meeting planning and video conferencing tools. With so many companies providing video conference solutions, it can be hard to determine which one is best for you. Our team can help you navigate all of the options and manage their usage for you. When working with an IT support company like us, you can focus on providing your customers your full support, while we make sure you have the right tools.

Video conferencing has become a vital tool. Traditionally, you would be able to get together in a conference room and work together to accomplish goals and objectives. In the current remote environment, the conference room has become video sharing. While this has led to challenges, this has also provided some amazing opportunities, like: recording meetings, incorporating people from anywhere in the world, or even requiring reducing the physical space you need to conduct business.

Project Management Tools

Project Management requires collaboration, data management, and organization. There are often key deadlines and information sharing requirements that can be challenging to manage remotely. We can provide you with the tools you need to be successful. Where you need to measure Key Point Indicators (KPIs), collect information from multiple sources, or maintain schedules with check points, we can help you find the best solutions for your projects.

Secure Cloud Systems

The flow of information is more challenging in an all-digital world. Today, you have to worry about security, capacity, speed of sharing, and what size files you can upload/download. Managing onsite data systems are great options, but they have their limitations. Cloud storage systems can help address your needs of saving and accessing your company’s information from anywhere. We can make sure you have the right cloud system that ensures your information is accessible and secure from anywhere.

Software and Licenses

Remote work has forced companies to adapt to new ways of doing business. More companies are accepting digital signatures on documents, processing more payments through digital transactions instead of physical transactions, or manage physical inventory for around the world. There are a lot of options out there, do you know what will work best for your business? When you work with our experts, we will review the options, and help you determine what software solutions are best for your needs.
