With the latest Government announcement opening up the UK further, on the country’s route out of the pandemic, many companies look set to start welcoming back workers to the office before long, but is your business ready?

The new normal of 2021 will undoubtedly be a bit different from the working world we were used to in 2019, and preparations for opening up the office will need to take this into account. Prodec Networks provides a wide range of innovative technology solutions that can help make your office life easier and more efficient at this challenging time and going forward. So here are some suggestions to get you started, as you ready your business for the post-pandemic return of your workforce.


Smart solutions for desk, room & visitor management

Although lockdown is easing, it will still be vital to ensure that all necessary measures are taken to keep your office workspaces COVID-safe for employees. With a more hybrid way of working on the cards for many organisations – whereby staff split their weeks between office and home working – it will be important to coordinate who is on-site at any given time. GoBright’s solutions can help you keep control of desk occupancy, room booking and visitor reception arrivals at the touch of a button. In this way, you can manage the number of people in your office and meeting rooms, for safe social distancing, make it easier to ensure desks are cleaned before use, and make sure contact tracing details are available, if needed. In addition, this software is easily customisable, so can be adjusted to whatever the latest regulations may require.

Your guide to creating the modern meeting room

Most likely, your meeting spaces have lain completely dormant and unloved for many months, while your employees have only worked from home, and these will urgently need updating to make them fit for purpose, in line with new working practices. The modern meeting room needs to make collaboration and teamwork as seamless, simple and productive as possible, effortlessly linking participants wherever they are based – on-site, at home, on the go, or across the world. Whether you need to refresh your huddle room, conference room, or boardroom, Prodec can provide the very best technology solutions and expertise to meet your specific requirements.

Finally, it will also be essential to ensure that your communications system is up to scratch. If you have been managing with an old, outdated phone system through these last few months, it is likely to have been holding your business back. Prodec partners with industry-leading manufacturers of communications technology, such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom and RingCentral, to offer unified communications platforms, which can take your business to a whole new level, empowering your employees to collaborate quickly and closely wherever they are based.
