Companies that had adopted new technologies during the COVID-19 pandemic were agile and flexible, able to pivot quickly to support new business dynamics and allow their people to work from just about anywhere.
Over the course of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic paved the way to a new era of remote working, where the strength of a company’s communications infrastructure and digital connectivity had never been more important. Laid bare, the benefits of investing in new technology were plain to see. Those companies that had adopted new technologies were agile and flexible, able to pivot quickly to support new business dynamics and allow their people to work from just about anywhere.
Much of the investment in technology made by businesses last year was focused on enabling business continuity in times of unprecedented disruption. While digital technology served businesses well to keep them operating, there’s now an urgent need to continue investing in new technology to increase the ease of communication and collaboration, security and convenience.
Capitalising on the benefits of investing in new technology
According to a McKinsey Global study from October last year, How COVID-19 has pushed companies over the technology tipping point—and transformed business forever, business executives reported a rapid shift toward interacting with customers through digital channels. Recognising technology as a critical enabler of the business, the study shows rates of adoption are years ahead of where they were when previous surveys were conducted.
Now, with a new normal work order supporting a hybrid model of working with office-based and remote teams, communications technology is taking centre stage. This means investing in new technology such as Microsoft Teams, Telstra IP Telephony, Telstra Calling, and the Amazon Connect platform is an urgent business propriety.
