Working From Home – 21 Free Resources

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, a good majority of us are now faced with the stark reality of working from home.

Unfortunately, not everyone is set up for it or indeed knows how to.

Suddenly working next to your colleague or having a business partner across the hall is no longer an option.  Neither is having someone close by how can help you out with access to your documents or getting the printer to work properly.

Working from home, or other locations outside of your office need not be a struggle.  Especially when utilising cloud applications such as Office 365, Microsoft Teams and SharePoint online.

Collaborating with your colleagues is pretty straight forward too.  We can even securely connect you to your server in the office, giving you full access to your company data drives.

Talk to us about setting up and supporting you remotely, be that working from home or other location so that you continue to work without interruption.

Through remote working you can:

Access your emails, contacts, and calendars across your devices even when offline. And set up Outlook to help you stay connected to customers or coworkers.

Connect with customers and coworkers using Microsoft Teams to instant message to answer quick questions, or host or join an online call or video meeting from your favourite device. Easily present, share and collaborate on documents and the virtual whiteboard within the meeting space.

Microsoft Sharepoint and One Drive are also available any time you’re online to help you and your teams access company data and files that allow you to work together collaboratively securely, wherever, whenever.

“We can set up remote working for you pretty quickly, it’s straight forward and doesn’t have to be a daunting process.”

Of course. working from Home can feel strange at first, but once set up, you’ll soon realise how simple working from home can be (entertaining the children, however, may prove to be an entirely different matter)….
