Remote working software helps businesses remain productive when employees work at home
Microsoft 365 App Award People’s Choice 2019 winner and Australian software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions provider, OnePlace Solutions has followed Microsoft’s lead in response to COVID-19.
OnePlace Solutions is offering its Microsoft 365 add-on software, the OnePlaceMail App, for free to support remote workers. No credit card details will be required to unlock this offer and it will be valid until 30 June 2020. This offer follows Microsoft’s announcement that subscribers to Microsoft Office 365 will be able to access a free trial of its Teams software.
James Fox, CEO, OnePlace Solutions, said, “The escalating situation caused by COVID-19 means that tens of thousands of workers may be working remotely before long.
“As a small Australian business, OnePlace Solutions understands the pressures that businesses are facing at the moment. We’re doing what we can to support fellow businesses by letting users access all of the features of the OnePlaceMail App for free.
“OnePlaceMail will be an important ingredient in making sure that those who implement the free Microsoft trial will get the most value and productivity out of it.”
Using OnePlace Solutions software, businesses can make it simple for users to share information and collaborate seamlessly and securely using Microsoft Teams or SharePoint, even if they’re not already familiar with these applications.
Users can share information with their colleagues with just a few clicks and be secure in the knowledge that the documents they’re accessing are the latest and most correct versions, and that an important file isn’t locked on someone’s desktop while they’re on sick leave.
James Fox said, “Fortunately for many companies, modern collaboration solutions make it relatively simple for most people to be productive from home.
“Businesses need the right mix of secure access to information and shared digital workspaces to let their employees be just as productive from home as they are from the office. This includes videoconferencing technology, document sharing and management platforms, and collaboration software.”
To get the most value from these platforms, organisations need to ensure that team members are using them effectively. Microsoft SharePoint and Teams are extremely powerful tools that help employees stay connected and up to speed on the information they need to do their jobs. However, if team members aren’t used to collaborating in this way, they may find themselves relying on inefficient and error-prone approaches such as emailing information to each other and saving documents on local devices or insecure platforms. This creates security issues and violates many best practices when it comes to managing corporate information.
James Fox said, “With the right combination of cloud-based tools, employees can be just as effective and productive from home as they could be in the office. This can help minimise the disruption caused by COVID-19, letting organisations conduct normal operations including meetings and close collaboration, all without requiring team members, customers, partners, or suppliers to come face to face with each other during this critical time.”
