Office 365 Plan for Firstline Workers Plan: What is it and is it Right for Me?
Almost any industry has firstline workers. But when they hear the term, most people think of customer service or maintenance workers. However, these are not the only firstline workers. It also includes almost anyone who works in the hospitality industry, sales associates and even medical staff.
Depending on your industry and their role, some of your frontline workers are probably very customer facing, whereas others might not be at all. Either way, they are mobile and always on the run or not attached to the office at all. This unique work style can present some specific challenges. For example, communication with the office is difficult, scheduling meetings and keeping track of tasks is time consuming and cumbersome. Plus, since they spend most of their time away from their desk, their access to technology is often more limited and the technology they have is often more outdated and less secure.
Office 365 for firstline workers solves all this. It gives frontline workers a one-stop shop where they can keep in touch and stay up-to-date with what’s happening in the office, collaborate with coworkers and share their expertise, all while minimizing your technology risk and cost.
