You did it, 2020 is over. While last year had an abundance of challenges, many organizations saw a silver lining by pivoting to new methods of supporting remote work, streamlining manual processes, and implanting automation in areas of business operations that in the past, would not have been possible.
But some organizations have experienced fluctuation and uncertainty when faced with the undertaking of moving to a decentralized workforce, challenged with a strained Information Technology Department, decentralized asset purchasing and remote work security concerns that did not exist in traditional models of office work. At the end of the day, these organizations want assurance that users, IT teams, and the operation itself will continue to run smoothly when everyone is not in a corporate building.
HOW TO SUCCEED
We see your challenges through three business offerings:
Imagine an employee starting their first day with your organization. How did you ensure that they understand the corporate goals and expectations that will be expected of them? Were they given the proper tools and access to business systems and critical information that impact their daily work? Were they really set up for success? If your organization focuses on questions such as these, you can be assured that your users are better enabled to flourish in this new environment.
During the boom of the industrial revolution, mechanical automation created better faster ways of manufacturing products at a scale that was previously feasible. But, with this new technology, a reliance on maintenance and support of the machinery was created, for if one went down it would cripple the operation and in-turn production would cease.
Digital Transformation Impact. Today, a similar scenario exists related to our reliance on digital technology and the people who interact, maintain, and support it. If there is a problem in a crucial business application or a mission- critical employee cannot access a vital system, the whole operation can come to a screeching halt. This poses an interesting challenge that ironically has little to do with the “Operations Department” and instead falls to both Human Resources and Information Technology. It is more evident than ever that IT and Human Resource teams must act in synergy to ensure that the organization has every assurance that production will continue.

IT Tech Assurance

- Life Cycle Management
- Device Acquisition
- IT Asset Disposition (e-recycling)
