Working remotely is the new reality.

The continued growth of a global talent market and the rise of a freelance workforce have contributed to a significant shift in the number of employees who telecommute. According to Gartner, 84 percent of organizations today have a remote workforce. With that in mind, companies must increasingly provide the latest tools and technologies to help employees communicate and collaborate more efficiently. But because employees, contractors, and customers require different levels of access to digital resources, your organization must now find the balance between security and access without interrupting the flow of business.

Engaging everyone.

The distributed workforce presents serious challenges to maintaining security and access without affecting productivity. The Microsoft Productivity platform provides easy-to-use communications and collaboration technologies that work together, whether at work or off-site. And productivity will be increased by improving access, managing governance, and providing a consistent user experience across PC, phone, and browser platforms.

Non-stop productivity

As companies continue to support distributed teams, they are seeing the power of shared workspaces and the necessity of integrated communications to allow for round-the-clock productivity and asynchronous collaboration. Faced with the challenges of a punctuated workday, a larger contingent staff, and fewer full-time workers, organizations will increasingly support desk-less workers through role-based views and they will benefit from more flexible, tiered licensing models.
