Geelong, Bellarine and Surf coast businesses have been scrambling to set up remote access from home for many employees and the scramble continues. Many employees live on the Surfcoast and Bellarine Penisula including locations such as Torquay, Anglesea, Lorne, Queenscliff and Ocean Grove. The location itself has very little bearing on setting up home remote access, what is important is hardware and internet connectivity (broadband access).
COVID-19 has created unprecedented demand in a short time frame for remote home access so most of our workforce can remain home in isolation. The good news for employers is that you can simply plug into existing personal computer hardware your employees have at home. Laptops, desktops or Macs, they can all be utilised to access work-related files and emails.
If you need to purchase new hardware this can be done at base levels to avoid excessive costs and you do not have to be an existing client of Evongo nor do you have to have an advanced IT set up. The entire job can often be performed remotely, without any of our team members ever having to visit your staff members’ homes.
What do your staff need to access?
Most businesses we deal with the staff require access to:
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software
We can limit the access your staff have so they only see the files you want them to see. It’s important to protect your business’s confidential information. Staff can be restricted at a variety of levels when using remote access to work files and servers. SO they only get the information that is relevant to them.
Emails are essential and often it is a good opportunity to review your current email arrangements to see if they can be set up more efficiently to best suit your company requirements.
After your home remote access has been set up and established we can actively protect and support these devices on an ongoing basis. We can ensure the connection is secure and that the devices your staff are using are actively protected.
Internet access will always play a key role in ensuring a seamless workflow when working remotely. We can asses and or make recommendations, particularly if staff members have unreliable internet access at home.
