The COVID-19 outbreak has highlighted the inevitable need for organizations to redefine their work systems in the current situation and in response to new market trends. In this scenario, setting up virtual offices that allow them to continue operating despite the adverse circumstances was not a choice but a must. Tools that were useful in the past are indispensable today.
The technology offers a wide range of ways to remotely carry out the work day. This includes collaborative management applications with which, among other things, teams can be effectively organized, projects carried out and communication established via various channels.
In times of crisis like the current one, the digital workplace becomes relevant, a concept that suggests a further development of the traditional office towards an environment in which there is not only a physical, but also a cloud-connected workspace. The integration of technologies improves interaction and promotes interconnectivity from anywhere, anytime. In addition, a company's resources can of course be accessed by all employees.
In this context, it is important that digitization is transversal, ie not just affecting one sector, but encompassing all processes in order to ensure the optimal functioning of all areas that make up a company.
