6 Simple RPA Hacks for Greater WFH Productivity

The concept of working remotely was already becoming an increasingly popular model across many industries even before the appearance of the coronavirus on the world stage. The proliferation of ever-evolving technologies like Skype, Teams, Zoom and Confluence meant that large numbers of workers could finally say a welcome goodbye to the dreaded commute and say hello instead to a more flexible and productive future.

A New Urgency
The advent of the coronavirus pandemic at the beginning of 2020, along with unprecedented lockdowns and the consequent economic shutdown, was a massive vindication for those progressive enterprises who had long championed the work from home approach. But more importantly, the new reality has forced businesses who had previously been resistant to the idea to take a long, hard look at the very real benefits of working remotely. It’s fair to say that these companies have faced a stark choice as COVID-19 has swept the globe: adapt or fall. As a result, millions of employees around the world now find themselves working from home, a state of affairs that requires a great deal of logistical planning to ensure optimal productivity so that businesses stay where they want to be – in the black.

The Quick and Easy Way to Higher Productivity
