Working from home
Working from home was always seen as a luxury for some. Being able to work remotely was viewed as something few people used, accessing key systems was always seen as a security risk especially when users can become difficult to directly track and monitor when they work and whether they are actually working. As such many of the systems in place for this may not be up to scratch in many organisations.

Reducing your office costs
A key benefit for you as a business will be the lower costs for you and your employees. We have already discussed the lower costs of commuting but the lower operating costs in running your office will be beneficial to you. Using less electricity and generating less waste are just two overarching examples on the way costs would be reduced by taking away the need for spending money on maintaining your offices fully. There can be issues that arise in this for example, some working from home environments may need to ensure that the users PC needs to be on at all times to access, meaning there is a point of failure that should be addressed. Logixal understands this and we move away from that by setting up central access points with redundancies in place to maintain business continuity .
