A recent consortium called “Humanizing the Digital Workplace” has found that “organizations continue to spend millions of dollars on productivity solutions and enterprise apps to support their workers, but ironically, those solutions are contributing to hurt productivity”.
In fact, just because a particular type of technology solution is adapted to suit a company, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is effective. Being able to quickly and easily start web and video conferences, for example, is a clear pain point, particularly in traditional conference room settings. Wimi is a tool that has been developed to meet all of your company’s productivity and data protection needs.
Here are few tips that are essential in making a digital workplace really productive for your employees, and how Wimi can help to facilitate this process.

Organizations are turning more and more to trusted partners to manage systems and software on their behalf. Nearly half of all business applications and collaboration tools are in fact managed by third parties, therefore more and more workplace technologies are considered as cloud-based services.

Centralization of software in data centers. Wimi is a digital solution that manage data in a specific cloud and therefore enable companies to make their transition to cloud effective.
