Streamlining Collaboration for Remote Workers

In today’s interconnected professional world, companies and employees have a variety of tools at their disposal to work from virtually anywhere. Companies can decentralize without seeing a loss in collaboration or productivity. However, that “virtually anywhere” comes with a caveat. There are industries that still struggle, particularly with field workers that spend time in report areas, or working in conditions that can make consistent, reliable connections difficult. 

Oil and Gas, Commercial HVAC, Healthcare,  Construction, and Manufacturing  are just some of the industries that depend on a workforce that can spend a significant time doing field work. Understanding how to best equip these employees with the tools the need to limit downtime and ensure consistency is critical.

The Difficulties of Fieldwork

In these industries, field workers are deployed to collect a variety of data– data that needs to be synthesized and uploaded in a timely fashion. Other employees, or even entire teams, are entirely dependent on this data.

Unfortunately, field work can produce issues with connectivity and data syncing. Most simply, workers may find themselves in an area that simply doesn’t have a cell phone tower nearby. Without proper cell coverage, many modern platforms simply don’t work. Intermittent coverage may result in uploads failing to complete and critical data being lost.

Other times, the nature of the work may simply make it difficult to connect to a shared database. For example, companies that work in the construction of nuclear powerplants can often experience machine interference just because of the equipment involved and the nature of the industry. In fact, the equipment utilized may be so sensitive that other electronic devices with WiFi capabilities may not even be allowed on premises.

This can make it difficult to accurately track and report the necessary data. At best, it requires these field workers to essentially enter this information twice– once in the field, and then again when they can reliably connect to their network.

The Importance of Effective Collaboration Tools

Effective collaboration tools are indispensable for remote teams to overcome these challenges. Seamless access to real-time data and communication channels is paramount to enhancing productivity and streamlining workflows. By leveraging the right tools, teams can mitigate the barriers imposed by geographical distances and operate cohesively regardless of location.
