As we move into a 3rd lock-down, whatever industry you’re working in, you’ve probably found that your day to day working life has changed drastically over the last 12 months. Now we all know how to use Zoom and Microsoft Teams, video conferencing has become the norm, living rooms and bedrooms have been turned into home offices and transport bills have drastically fallen due to months of WFH.
But the changes to working practices go much wider than that. Many businesses have had to implement a more flexible approach to employee working hours as employees have to juggle workloads with home schooling and other challenges. Feedback has told us that in most instances employees are starting earlier and finishing later, which is proving challenging for some IT Staff to ensure the right level of support is available when it is needed. As we move forward it is becoming clear that the “normal” 9am – 5:30pm support model does not provide the level of support employees need in the modern COVID workplace.
Since the beginning of the pandemic the eacs support teams have been working hard to ensure that customers remain operational during one of the most challenging periods we have all faced. Since March we have seen a dramatic rise in demand from customers needing to either migrate their digital operations to the cloud to enable remote working, or look at ways to implement a more flexible support model that will provide the appropriate support to employees working from home when they need it. As a result of these demands and in order to continue to provide the level and quality of service our customers need, last year eacs moved to a 24/7 service model.
So now you know why we moved to 24/7, you may be wondering how it benefits you?
