Preparing for the future of work

Many businesses have embarked on a digital transformation journey that will likely see them adopting emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), augmented and virtual reality, and automation and decision-support systems.

Adopting these technologies is critical for the future success of your business. Until now, doing so has seemed beyond the reach of small to medium-sized businesses, since the IT infrastructure required is generally complex and, potentially, expensive.

The Workplace Hub changes everything

It unifies your entire technology stack using a single, centralised platform. It brings together all of the tools, services and devices your business uses into a central hub that simplifies IT.

The Workplace Hub drives efficiencies by:

  • reducing the overall costs of IT management and service provision
  • providing real-time, data-driven insights that help improve business processes
  • creating an ecosystem to manage and coordinate the entire IT infrastructure and services across existing and future systems, devices and services
  • providing a central dashboard that shows 360-degree visibility of IT usage patterns so systems can be optimised.

A roadmap for the future

The Workplace Hub is already set up so you can plug into IoT, AI, intelligent edge and decision support capabilities as they become central to your business environment.

This will help SMBs take advantage of emerging technologies and propel you into the new age of working. Your staff will be freed from repetitive, mindless tasks so they can focus on the value-added activities that will give your business a sharper competitive edge.

Importantly, the Workplace Hub will let you get the benefits from enterprise-level technology without requiring an enterprise-sized IT team or budget.
