As a business owner today, you are now facing unprecedented challenges to help deal with the coronavirus pandemic. You are asked to self-isolate and practice social distancing to “flatten the curve.” You are asked to allow your employees to work from home to reduce possible exposure and slow the spread of COVID-19.

These are all reasonable requests. However, as a business owner, you also need to maximize productivity, bring in revenue and try to grow your business in these demanding times. How can you accomplish these goals when your office is now a ghost town and productivity has fallen off a cliff?

The answer lies in setting up your office to function remotely. If you’ve never implemented a work-from-home policy before, it may seem like a whole different world. Managing an entirely remote workforce goes far beyond giving your employees a laptop and reminding them to check in every once in a while. After all, there are many factors most business owners haven’t ever had to consider, such as:

  • What technologies do I need?
  • How can my employees work from home without compromising the security of our network?
  • How can I make this new work environment as easy, comfortable and productive as possible?

We understand these are unique times. We know that “business as usual” is going to be quite different for an undetermined amount of time. But together we can help you adjust to today’s new normal by giving you the tools, technologies and insights to create a secure and productive work-from-home business environment. Here are three important considerations to getting you set up and running a successful work-from-home business:

1. Remote Office - Any Device From Anywhere.

You might have been one of the many trying to get their hands on a laptop to embrace this new work-from-home concept.  While laptops are one way to access your files, we are able to provide you will full secure access on any device.  KSP’s managed desktop provides you with the flexibility to use your phone, tablet, home desktop or laptop in any location to connect to your information.  Your desktop will appear the same no matter where you log on.  Once inside our secure remote environment, you are able to resume “business as usual”.

2. Zero-Contact Setup.

One of your fears is getting yourself and your staff set up without putting them at further risk.  Since the current situation is requiring social distancing and isolation, let’s use technology to connect.  Safety is our top priority and therefore we are able to offer:

  • Remote network and needs assessment
  • Remote business analysis and review
  • Remote on-boarding
  • Remote support, maintenance, monitoring and security

Tele and video conferencing tools allow us to access the information we require to meet your immediate needs.  We are able to be a virtual network doctor hearing your symptoms and providing you with a customized prescription.  Hardware (if needed) can be shipped and remote support will guide you through installation.  Our team will continue to work with you to ensure you are successfully up and running 100%.

3. Most Secure.

Unfortunately, cyber-attacks are on the rise and many businesses are vulnerable due to unsecured remote access.  Our team works hard to ensure your computers and network are secure and protected from malware, viruses and cyber-attacks.  Our proprietary combination of tools, up-to-date research, and regular testing are the reasons we are considered a leader in cybersecurity.  Our multi-tier security stack and backup solutions provide a safe working environment regardless of the device or location.  We want to provide you with peace of mind to focus on what you do best.

As business owners ourselves, we too are having to pivot and work differently than we ever have before. However, because we have the technology and infrastructure in place, we are still surprisingly productive.

Our team wants to help your business survive and thrive during today’s unique environment. If you and your IT team need extra hands right now…or solutions to help your employees work SECURELY from home…we have software tools, expert staff and resources we’d like to offer you to keep your business as productive as possible.  Please know this is not a sales tactic but simply an outreach to help a fellow CEO stay afloat.
