Is it a return to normalcy? How can it be facilitated?
The new reality we are currently facing is causing companies to look for solutions to help them operate in the virtual world. The pandemic changed the world, and during this period we learned to function very differently.
We had to learn how to work and function virtually, and how to operate in new ways.
Are businesses still not prepared to digitize their operations?
We know now that remote work is here to stay. Companies that want to maintain their leadership position and stay one step ahead of the competition will be forced to look for solutions to support online operations.
What is the best place to look for tools supporting work in this new reality? What tools should you invest in make sure your company keeps up with the market? How can information be managed at a distance? How can business processes and other company resources be managed remotely, how can documents be processed online, and how can they be processed outside the office?
We need solutions that guarantee the continuity of business operations and eliminate the barriers that accompany their operation in the virtual world.
Meeting the challenges of the pandemic – choosing the right tools for remote work

Will we return to the office?
A report prepared by pracuj.pl, “Working in the era of the coronavirus,” shows that 9 out of 10 respondents want to work, at least in part, remotely after the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions. The majority of respondents expect home office work to increase in importance in the future.
Working remotely offers advantages not so much for the employee, but also for the company and employer as a whole: a reduction of physical office space and a reduction of costs associated with the operation of the office (rents, utility bills, facilities, equipment, furniture, cleaning, etc.).
All these factors significantly affect companies’ costs. On the other hand, properly selected online working tools will help the company get on the path of digital development after the pandemic.
It’s safe to assume, based on the benefits employers and employees gain from working online, that we won’t soon return to offices permanently.
