Want to make it easier working from home?
Here are some tips on how to work from home more efficiently.
- Are you using multiple screens? Having multiple screens, (whether that is just 1 extra or even 2 or 3), while working from home is one of the main things to consider as it will increase your productivity. You have an advantage that you can use multiple programs simultaneously.
- Docking stations can help by connecting multiple screens so its like working in the office with all you devices connected. Many people have a permanent home office so an external keyboard/mouse, rather than the one the laptop will allow you to navigate quicker. It will also allow you to connect other devices such as network cable, printer and headset for example.
- A VOIP phone system such as the one we provide (3CX) can also help you work more efficiently from home as it offers a free soft phone which can be used with the speakers and mic inbuilt to your laptop or with a headset, meaning you can leave the office phone on your desk. There is also a free mobile app which can allow you to work anywhere, even without you laptop, all you need is an internet connection.
- Wireless keyboard and mouse – If space is tight whilst working from home, having a wireless keyboard and mouse can help you move around the house easier, keeping things tidy and allowing you to navigate your desktop quicker.
- What software are you using to access your business files? – There are many solutions for remote working and it all depends on where your data and applications are stored. You may only have a VPN, that allows you access to files, or you might use a cloud solution such as Office 365. If you would like to improve how you are accessing your data to be more efficient, please discuss with us.
