We are moving to a more remote workforce and we have been asked to identify new ways of working to ensure we are making the use of the technology available to us. At present “remotely”, i.e. out the office we have laptops that can connect to the internet and corporately there is an outlook web access facility and a citrix access gateway for getting to mail and files from network shares etc.
We can also make use of blackberries if required, but I am not sure aside from calls and mail what else we could do with them.
So was really more after what technology you use remotely above beyond email and citrix for files, and what else you tap into via smart-phones (blackberries, iphones/pads etc). Just really some inspiration on what else we could look to use “on the move” in the year 2012. We essentially act as risk/audit based consultancy and end product of our work is really a look at controls and production of a report with what we feel is good and what could be done better/in a more controlled manner.
Some sort of catalogue of what technology you use remotely and for what purposes and how it benefits remote working would be great.
