How Strategic Purchasing of Technology Reduces Costs and Improves Employee Productivity

The Biggest Barrier to Remote Work Effectiveness

Many of these device purchases happened ad hoc, often made by IT and line of business (LOB) leaders. The rush to business continuity forced organizations to buy whatever was immediately available. There simply wasn’t time to consider all business and end user requirements. As a result, devices were rarely customized to fit user personas, resulting in reducing employee productivity.
