If your Architect and Engineering team is working remotely, having a co-managed IT system in place with a managed service provider (MSP), will ensure productivity and security.
Picture this: Everyone is working from home and the single server goes down. You can’t recover remotely the way you can in person, and that creates productivity loss. If you were in the office, you could just pop over to a colleague’s desk and have an impromptu meeting. You can’t do that anymore. Not if you don’t have the right tools and appropriate support. All your files are on your company’s downed server, and you can’t do your job.
Sounds like a nightmare scenario, right? Unfortunately, it could quickly become a reality. An unprecedented number of employees are working from home. What works in terms of IT tools and systems when everyone’s in the office just doesn’t work when dozens of people are trying to access your VPN remotely. And that can cause major headaches – especially if you don’t have a clear plan for how you’ll support employees who are remotely accessing your IT system.
Remote Work is Too Complex for One Person to Manage
How’s your relationship with your IT guy these days? He’s struggling with the demands of the current climate too, and he can come across like a bad date: dodging your calls and ghosting you. Let’s be real here, there’s no way a single IT guy who is learning on the job can keep up with all the changing remote IT needs.
The fact is: Without a plan for your staff working remotely, you risk lowered productivity and increased costs, especially if your server goes down or can’t handle the workload.
