This is the way we have always done it!
It probably will, and the reason why is simple – People get used to current processes and the thought of changing a system that ‘works’ is daunting and assumed to be more expensive.
When it comes to mobility working…this couldn’t be further from the truth.
An office enviroment will always be required when it comes to running a succesfull business. Employees need to collabarate face to face because thats often when the best ideas happen. So when you hear the term mobility working and instantly picture a chaotic work/life balance amongst employees; take a step back and quickly assess how productive your staff are right now.
According to a survey of 2,000 people by financial management service – Think Money, an average employee wastes 60 hours per month on distractions, including chatter with colleagues, staring out the window and general non-productive tasks. Now, while you cannot account for everything and employees should be taking responsibility for their own working obligations; there are numerous benefits to giving staff an option of mobility away from the daily distractions and pedestrian processes that are slowing down productivity in the office.
Benefits such as –
Flexible staff hours when required
Ability to join in meetings on the move
Engineers in the field can diagnose problems and collabarate, reducing number of visits.
Sales staff can stay out in the field longer, no more updating CRM back at the office.
Plus many more…
In summary – there is no one-size-fits-all solution, but the good news is Galaxy are on hand to advise and create a bespoke package to suit your business needs.

Well, it’s going to take time but we are already seeing intent from the retail, healthcare and industrial/supply chain industries to make it a conerstone of the consumer experience. As for the B2B sector, IOT could improve industrial ordering and combined with the power of blockchain; offer a seemless automated chain from factory and shipping to end user.
