When it comes to the decision to go remote, I have found that updating my tools has been a big reason why I’ve never looked back. When my team was solely in-person, there were plenty of processes that never changed simply out of convenience. We weren’t looking for new solutions because we didn’t see the need.
From landlines and email to in-house servers and tunneling in via VPN, these tools were old and bulky, but they worked for our needs, or so we thought. When the time came for us to go digital at the start of the pandemic, we found that those old systems slowed us down even more than before.
These tools were 20 years old and were already ineffective. Adding remote work into the mix just made things more confusing and frustrating. Rather than throwing in the towel, we decided to update our process with new tech.
I created systems better suited for remote work, and now I can access my information from anywhere with ease. My team is working together seamlessly, and we are seeing more productivity than ever. My business is running smoothly now. Going remote allowed me to get rid of old practices that actually hurt my business and moved us into efficiency!
