There was a time when people chose a job near their homes — or moved to live near their jobs. Traveling salespeople had a territory near their homes and dealt with the regional office. Workers were matched with employers on the basis of geography.
Office computers didn’t really change this. The office had a local area network and a big server, and the workers came into the office to access their computers. People moved to an area because it was good for their chosen profession, or chose a profession because it was needed in the place where they lived.
Now workers and jobs are distributed unevenly around the globe. You choose your off-site workers from an international palette of talents, and send your on-site workers out more often and more widely.
When it comes to communication, this often means that your office computers are not a network of desktop workstations with a central server, but a collection of laptops in changing locations. A mobile sales forces is still likely, but you may also have a mobile accounting staff or a mobile IT department.
How do you get information from the field back to headquarters? How are new price sheets distributed from headquarters to the sales force? How can you be certain that colleagues in multiple locations are in fact working on the same iteration of a collaborative document?
Install FileReplicationPro on a laptop. As soon as that laptop is connected to the internet, it will sync with the office server in a secure manner. It’ll send information out and receive information automatically with no complex VPN setups, and with no action required from the laptop user. Install FileReplicationPro on all the laptops used by your workforce, and you have the same data available to all — better synchronization than in the average office, even if your staff stretches from Dubai to Dallas.
Not only can non-technical staff make sure to be up to date and on the same virtual page, but you don’t even have to rely on workers to remember to email, update, or even back up their data.
