Helping Business to Re-open with Five Simple Solutions

Following the lifting of restrictions and with the UK returning to some sort of normality, it is great to see a clearer light and the end of what has been a very long tunnel! Many offices across the UK have now started welcoming employees back on to premises for the return of pre-covid working norms.

With many organisations already taking steps to ensure staff can work effectively remotely and where needed implementing solutions to create a covid compliant office, with an increase in office footfall it’s worth looking at solutions to enhance your organisations approach. As we all hope to see offices re-open in the coming months below are five solutions and innovative technologies to consider so you can make sure your business is fully prepared (and of course safe!).

Office & Display Signage

Keep your staff aware of any new rules, processes or one way systems you may have put in place to provide a covid compliant office. With employees returning to what may be a different environment to the one they left, make it clear with fully customisable signage.

Everything from flyers & posters to floor tiles & circles, notice boards, pull-ups, large entrance displays and anything else your office would need to ensure it is ready for your workforce to return safely.

Limiting contact as much as possible on shared surfaces and devices is key to stopping the spread of any germs within the office. Implementing a Touchless Printing approach allows users to limit any unnecessary or unwanted contact with colleagues and co-workers whilst having a contact-free print experience.

Touchless Printing

A key step to safety is creating a touchless working environment where possible. Touchless Printing solutions work in the same way as contactless payments at the supermarket. Simply scan your ID card to print what’s in your queue, collect from the device and return to your desk.

Accessing Documents

After spending months ensuring your employees can access all the right documents remotely, its critical organisations make these documents readily available whether you are in the office or at home.

With cloud-based document management systems, staff can access, edit and share all the latest documents creating the ultimate collaborative online working environment. By implementing this, staff can create a content ecosystem that is secure yet accessible from any device with the right credentials.

Digitising Postal Processes

By digitising mail both into and out of your organisation, employees can access the important stuff wherever they are. Whilst we gradually reopen our doors to employees let’s make sure they have access to everything they need to work efficiently and effectively.

Communication is a key element in business, and therefore keeping those lines of communication open whilst working between multiple locations is a major part of allowing your organisation to continuously progress. As well as being an efficient and secure way of sending and receiving your mail digitally it also allows for a touch-free approach to mail management.
