Times are a’changing for many employers as they set their employees up to work from home. While working from home was becoming more and more commonplace even before the novel coronavirus struck, nowadays it is essential.
Welcome to the MetaViewer Blog
Times of uncertainty call for reliable technology. You have likely deployed a “work anywhere” workforce and have employees working from their home offices, living rooms, kitchen tables or backyards. During this time we at Metafile, along with many other technology providers, are touting the benefits of cloud technology. And for good reason! For organizations that typically operate within an office environment, cloud technology may not have been a priority. However, times have changed and, whether deploying a remote workforce is a temporary or permanent transition, it’s important to understand the advantages of technology, especially automation technology, hosted in the cloud.
Today’s workforce is becoming a remote one. More and more companies are transitioning their employees to remote workers, allowing them to save money on office space and equipment, as well as expand their hiring to a wider group of prospects.
Look around you right now. If you're in a public place, count how many people are on some sort of electronic device. If you're reading this from your cell phone, tablet or laptop, well, you prove my point. We are in an era dominated by mobile devices, cloud computing, smart analytics and the Internet of Things and, because of this, digitizing processes and procedures is becoming increasingly important in the workplace. Yes, beyond just streaming Netflix from your phone. Society has gone digital, and the rise of digital technology has caused a dramatic shift in how businesses need to understand the benefits of new and emerging technologies in order to meet the changing needs of today’s consumers.
Gartner recently revealed their 2018 Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends and, we don't know about you, but we're pretty excited about the trends that will be revealing themselves in the near future, as well as the trends that will become even more prominent in 2018. And what's even more exciting is that MetaViewer is on the cusp of many of these trends.
Here's what's coming up, ready or not!
Our hearts continue to go out to all those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Many of our customers and partners have been experiencing the wrath of these natural disasters, and all of us at Metafile offer our continued thoughts and support.
The leaves are starting to change here in Minnesota (yes, we're in mourning), so the MetaViewer team is packing up and heading south to Tampa for the 10th annual DSLUG Fall Conference. And not only will we be there to network, educate and do some of our own learning (even we don't know everything about Microsoft Dynamics!), this year we are proud to be a Gold Sponsor!
The MetaViewer team is celebrating, because this week it announced that the state-of-the-art document management solution now integrates with Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations!
