Efficiency within a business is ultimately aligned to time and money. Whether it’s making employees more productive, getting the most out of what you already have or simply saving on energy costs, having an efficiently run business can spell greater profits and success.

But to reap the many benefits that come with greater efficiency, simply implementing technology doesn’t solve the problem. Enhancing efficiency with technology requires unique solutions for the diverse needs in each individual company.

Office Setting 
Influxes of mobile devices and ubiquitous connectivity have given rise to a community able to work whenever or wherever they need to, creating a transformed office workforce. This trend in mobility leads directly into another — a greater need for collaborative tools and enhanced communication. As a result, businesses turn to communications solutions such as audio and Web conferencing, voice-over-IP (VoIP), and other technologies that replicate the office experience and allow for more collaborative interactions. These technologies continue to be used more in-house, as offices become more globally diverse.

What this boils down to is IT being faced with a myriad of specific needs and requirements that are dictated by end-user job functions and the physical constraints of workplace real estate — and on limited resources. All too often, the need to react immediately to changing business drivers forces IT to adopt a complex inventory of products and solutions with disparate vendor relationships and agreements.

Organizations ought to seek a unified strategy from a trusted vendor that can provide open and collaborative solutions to the challenges affecting IT.
