In the modern workplace, collaboration is vital. Employees need to communicate and share ideas easily — from wherever they are. That’s why it’s crucial to have the right tools to enable a better work experience — one that empowers your employees to be more productive and collaborative.

The modern workplace toolset needs to add value to both employees and customers, not just the business.

That’s why when you’re building your business and introducing a modern workplace, make sure to consider not only the software but also the hardware tools you’ll need to support it. Think about the devices that help employees easily take their work between the office and home. You’ll want to keep these questions in mind when selecting your hardware tools:

  1. How will I empower my employees to work from anywhere?
  2. How do I need to adapt my IT systems to accommodate remote work?
  3. How can I enable flexible collaboration so employees can work together wherever they are?
  4. What can I do to help employees stay engaged and productive?

If you think about it, the right hardware tools are often overlooked when companies embark on their digital transformation journeys. Digital transformation is critical in today’s landscape, but it’s the hardware that enables your team to access modern workplace tools—as such, getting the right devices is also essential.

Let’s start with the obvious: An employee’s laptop or desktop computer will be their primary tool when working from home. However, there are other things to think about when it comes to hardware:


If your employees need to print, you might look into solutions that allow them to print at home and work. This will be a flexible solution when the need for physical copies arises. 

Conference Rooms

When a workforce is distributed, some employees may work from home while others work in the office. When these groups convene to collaborate, they require conference rooms equipped with video conferencing capabilities.

Network Connectivity

When your team is working from home, make sure they have a strong connection to the internet. To ensure that critical remote workers don’t miss a beat, you might want to give them SD-WAN routers.

Whether you’re working from home or in the office, the hardware you use can make a huge difference in your performance and productivity. And with more people working remotely than ever before, you must carefully consider the proper hardware when selecting modern workplace tools. Employees will need hardware that they can easily take between the home and the office, with little workflow disruption when they log back in.

You need to remember that creating the right work environment is key to the success of your business. Employees need a space that enables them to communicate and share ideas wherever and whenever they want. Modern workplace success means that you need to use the right tools for communication, collaboration, and productivity while keeping costs down.
