Flexible working is part of a hybrid workplace environment where some employees work remotely and flexibly, whilst others are permanently office based.
As we transform our workplaces, the emerging flexible working benefits are:
- Improved customer and stakeholder response times and service delivery.
- Business continuity and enhanced operational performance agility.
- Improved workforce productivity and morale - reducing staff turnover.
- Real estate rationalisation and lower operating costs.
- Improved operational security and compliance.

Flexible working building blocks
Effective ‘anytime, anywhere’ collaboration doesn't just happen, it requires a platform of unified communications, based on cloud, wi-fi, internet and security solutions, delivered in a way that suits the organisation.

Business systems and information in a highly secure yet accessible environment, providing business continuity protection against system failures cyber-attacks and data loss. There’s a growing realisation that legacy on-premise infrastructures are far more vulnerable than state-of-the-art cloud services. Hybrid cloud services blend datacentre, colocation, private and public cloud requirements into bespoke architectures to support secure hybrid working.
Networking & Connectivity
The internet has changed everything and reliable, secure networking is extremely important for everyone - without it we can’t be productive. Our ‘always-on’ network has been recognised as critical national infrastructure for the islands. On-going multi-million-pound investment has recently upgraded network capacity, resilience and security to exceptional levels of performance.
Security & Business Continuity

Organisations who fail to take the necessary precautions won’t be around for long. The internet is inherently insecure, and cybercrime is becoming ever more sophisticated. Robust security must be in place to protect intellectual property and keep things running in the event of an attack. Hybrid working practices must adhere to strict security protocols to ensure safe working for all.

Service and support comes in all shapes and sizes, from fully managed services that monitor infrastructure and security on a 24/7 basis, to more basic help and support when needed. We help organisations plan for the future, by anticipating needs and desired outcomes - based on capacity requirements, growth expectations and business trends.
