‘Seamless productivity.’ Remote government workers require reliable and efficient technology solutions
Content created in partnership with Saltwire
Government workers across Atlantic Canada are still signing into work from the safety of their homes, relying on technology solutions to keep them connected and productive. With the work from home model proving advantageous for many, government decision makers and IT leaders are taking a closer look at the technology that’s going to sustain the remote work set up and keep their teams positioned for success.
“One of the first technologies IT teams should be investing in for their workers is the right smartphone,” says Paul Edwards, Vice President & General Manager of Enterprise Mobility with Samsung Canada.
“Today’s smartphones are not only built to enable mobility, but to help workers in all roles and positions accomplish critical tasks. Whether you’re an office worker with greater needs for mobility around the house, or a frontline worker who’s used to being out on the road, your smartphone should act as an important lifeline back to work.”
UNINTERRUPTED MOBILE CONNECTIVITY
Enter the Samsung Galaxy A Series devices, which include the Galaxy A12, Galaxy A32 5G and Galaxy A52 5G. Cost-effective and built with innovative productivity features, remote workers don’t have to worry about lacking the functionality to get the job done from virtually any location.
The Galaxy A Series devices’ expansive displays stretch edge-to-edge, enabling workers to view documents and take video calls from their phones. Not only that, their long-lasting battery life allows for all-day, uninterrupted connectivity. Government workers who are busy travelling between multiple sites can rest assured that their mobile device will stay powered throughout the entire journey. And if workers do need a charge, the devices’ Super Fast Charging feature will get them back up and running in no time.
Another core feature remote workers are looking for in their mobile devices, says Edwards, is storage capability. With the Galaxy A Series lineup, government workers don’t have to worry about running out of space for their important work files. With 128GB of built-in storage, plus room to store up to 1TB more by adding a MicroSD card, workers can keep everything they need right at their fingertips, whether online or offline.
With Microsoft Office 365 integration, productivity is built right into the devices. Workers can tap into cloud-based corporate apps and documents remotely and follow along with Microsoft Teams messages so they don’t miss important updates from co-workers.
THE EASE OF INTERCONNECTED DEVICES
Once employees are equipped with a Samsung Galaxy A Series device, Edwards says government organizations need to procure complementary devices to ensure all bases are covered when it comes to setting up remote workers for success.
“Employees rarely rely on a single device these days. Having an ecosystem of devices that all seamlessly sync with each other can help take the work-from-home experience up a notch,” says Edwards.
In addition to the smartphone, many remote workers rely heavily on their laptops. The Galaxy Book Series – which includes the Galaxy Book Pro 360, Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book – is the foundational piece in the Galaxy ecosystem of devices that also includes the Galaxy Buds2 and Galaxy Tab S7 FE. With their Galaxy Book Series laptop, A Series smartphone, Galaxy Buds2 and Galaxy Tab S7 FE, government workers have the complete package for seamless productivity.
With virtual conference calls taking up a lot of government workers’ day, the Galaxy ecosystem can help make taking those calls a breeze.
With the Galaxy Buds2, government workers don’t have to scramble for their headphones, untangle wires or re-pair headsets when joining a Teams video conference. Thanks to harmonious Bluetooth connectivity, the Galaxy Book Pro will immediately recognize and connect to the cord-free Galaxy Buds2 as soon as workers open the case. When it’s their time to speak, they’ll come through with crystal clarity thanks to the powerful voice pick-up.
Workers can also leverage the Galaxy Tab S7 FE as a second screen. While projecting a presentation on their Galaxy Book Pro, employees can simultaneously jot down action items on their tablet with the included S Pen. Once they’re done, they can quickly convert their digital handwritten notes to text at the touch of a button and easily share with their teams.
When other team members are presenting, workers can stay on top of their phone notifications and urgent messages. With Link to Windows integrated into the Galaxy A Series device and Galaxy Book Pro, they’ll be able to see their phone’s notifications right on their laptop screen, streamlining their workflow and prioritizing urgent tasks. And integration with Microsoft 365 apps means that workers can easily share files between their Galaxy device and PC, combine calendars, and do much more.
When government IT decision-makers are deciding on the most ideal tech solutions for their employees, Edwards suggests that they picture it like a toolkit, with various elements that need to work together and complement each other to achieve optimal productivity.
With the economical and feature-rich Galaxy A Series lineup working in synchronicity with the Galaxy ecosystem of devices, there’s nothing the remote government worker can’t achieve.
