W is for The Workplace of Today

October 6, 2017 Cara Stafford

At the intersection of business and technology is the modern workplace. Your technology needs to keep up with evolving business needs, distributed teams, and an increasingly complex threat environment. The way employees work is based on the way we lead and manage, as well as the technology and tools we provide them. With Microsoft tools, we are able to help your business manage itself better, work smarter through collaborative tools, and enable more flexibility and mobility for employees while keeping data secure.

Forbes has indicated that modern workplace shifts are driven by six core needs of individuals. Our job at New Signature is to deliver the correct technologies to align with your strategic business goals and requirements, while encouraging productivity and employee growth.  

Collaboration 

Fact: Providing employees with modern tools and flexibility results in higher engagement and productivity. At New Signature, we drink our own champagne. Our employees work remotely, in the field, and across several countries. We are provided the same tools that we deliver to our businesses.  

TeamsThe newest collaborative tool to hit the stands at New Signature is Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Teams is core to our vision for intelligent communications—bringing together conversations, meetings, files, Office apps, and third-party integrations—to provide a single hub for teamwork in Office 365. New Signature has already adopted Teams internally, and is positioned to deliver it to your business, as well.  

Microsoft 365Microsoft workplace technologies are best experienced when they are all used together in an optimized fashion. Microsoft 365 is an integrated set of tools including Office 365, Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS), bringing you a best-in-class solution that provides all the necessities and applications that drive collaboration and productivity at an enterprise-level.  It is designed with small and medium-sized businesses in mind to help your business achieve more with the best Office tools. 

Windows 10Windows 10 helps improve your work life with its increased funcationalities and improved security layers. This version of Microsoft’s operating system offers improvements across the spectrum with enhanced performance and reliability. Windows 10 has revolutionized the way that organizations will manage operating systems. It provides the features that you have come to know and rely on, while also providing a unique and personalized experience for each user. 

Insight 

The modern workplace is proactive, not reactive, and relies on data to determine growth and success. Microsoft tools like Office 365 and Dynamics 365 offer your business the ability to hone in on statistics about your time management and the benefits of being more effective with your time. You can use these tools to bring data visualization to your fingertips and work to shift your work life to optimize your time and resources. 

Mobility & Security 

The modern workplace is on the go. We work remotely, we work during travel time, in coffee shops and disparate time zones. Microsoft tools like Skype for Business, SharePoint, and Teams allow us to work from our many devices in any location with ease. The common misconception with this mobility is that with it comes a level of sacrifice to data security. This couldn’t be further from the truth. 

With Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS), we simplify our IT environment through better governance and user management. EMS also helps us safeguard our data and intellectual property. See more about the balance of mobility and security: 

The modern workplace is here, and businesses that get ahead of the game and proactively implement technologies to support success can increase their productivity and optimize their resources. Collaboration, insight, mobility and security are the core pillars of the modern workplace, and are all available with the help of New Signature experts.
