Break the chains that bind you!
Were you aware that with today’s technology you don’t actually have to BE at your office to LOOK like you’re at your office? Now, what if you could do that AND be more productive and efficient than ever. Wouldn’t you want to know more?
Being in the technology business I have access to tools that you may not know exist. Or maybe you knew that they existed but didn’t think that YOU could use them or weren’t sure how. “Working remotely” is one of my favorite uses of technology hands down. See, like you, I am a busy person. I am a wife, mother, business owner/sales person/marketer/problem solver/cheerleader, volunteer AND I actually do have a life (no matter what my kids say). Not only can’t I be chained to the office but frankly, I don’t WANT to be (maybe it was my 40th Birthday last year). So, I no longer am. Does anyone really know that…no. Does that mean that I don’t work…absolutely not. You see I have created that balance that we are all looking for everyday by using technology to work for me. (Yes, technology is SUPPOSED to work for you instead of you for it.)
Okay, so I have some technicians at my disposal but I promise, you too can harness the power that is “working remotely” while you are on vacation, at home, waiting in the pickup line at your kid’s school, on a business trip…whatever. If you happen to own a business or run one…you will love this technology. From wherever…I can not only do the usual stuff like, access the company network, see who’s on it, share and send files, emails, surf the web, forward calls to my cell, check voicemail, etc. but I can also see every call that comes into my business, who answers it (or intercept it myself), see how long they are on the phone, chat live with an employee at any moment, see what employees are on the phone at any given time and to whom (in addition to whether or not they dialed it or received the call) and even see if they are AT their computer working. Additionally, if you have cameras at your business (yes we do that too) you can even WATCH your business at any time. So, in truth, you’d only know that I’m not present if you showed up in person to see me (in which case I’m “in a meeting”).
Our advice? Explore what “working remotely” could do for you and/or your company to save time, reduce labor/overhead, travel reimbursements/fuel consumption, improve productivity, efficiency and moral with a trustworthy, reliable technology partner (see my blog about the cautions of remote access).
Random DID YOU KNOW? Beware of Facebook “friend requests” – don’t be so eager to accept them unless you KNOW the person making the request. Hackers, Phishers, and general cyber bad guys can find out loads of information through your profile, access your computer or just infect your system by your clicking the accept link through your email.
