What is a Digital Toolkit?
Digital Toolkits, or Software Toolkits, are made up of all of the individual software tools your organisation uses, from company-wide email, messaging, video conferencing, project management and wellbeing tools, to individual team collaboration systems.
How do Digital Toolkits impact the success of a remote work model?
Software and technology advancements are the reason remote work is viable. But working remotely well requires more than providing your team with a laptop full of tools. Having a comprehensive set of tools in place to keep your team connected and working efficiently wherever they work is just the beginning. Your tools are only as good as how well your team uses them. Streamlining your software, providing custom guidelines for usage, and driving adoption through education, and iteration is key to success.
How Ready for Remote can help:
We’ll guide your organisation through the analysis, creation and adoption phases for your digital infrastructure to streamline operational efficiency. From streamlining and increasing the adoption of how your organisation uses existing tools to implementing full-scale digital transformation, we’re here for you.
Flexibility is the future of work. We have the experience and expertise to help you create a successful remote working company.
