What technology do you need in hybrid work solutions?

Hybrid technology solutions typically include two main pieces:

  • Robust communications platforms that give you phone calls, messaging, and video conferencing, screen sharing, and online whiteboard options for remote collaboration
  • Cloud storage and file-sharing tools with document synchronization for easy access

In terms of nice-to-haves, some hybrid workplaces may also need workforce management to keep track of everyone’s schedules, and performance management and analytics tools to ensure the business is operating effectively. And when the whole team needs to come together, you'd need to set up a physical, virtual, or hybrid meeting room with smart conferencing solutions.

Hybrid work software use cases: How these companies have found flexible work styles

Camino Financial

Dialpad’s unified communications platform made it easy for Camino Financial’s staff to work remotely during the pandemic—and now it’s helping them transition to a hybrid model. With offices located in LA, Mexico, and Colombia, they need to be able to communicate from anywhere.

With Dialpad, their team can easily manage scheduling for a distributed workforce, including different holiday schedules for agents in different locations. Plus, the employees love working with the native Salesforce integration and call analytics.

In fact, the company boosted customer satisfaction up to 97% and cut resolution time from 48 hours to just six hours!

Stax

Payment processing provider Stax has also embraced hybrid working in order to support the fast-growing company. Stax has offices across the US and is expanding around the world, so they need a scalable system that keeps everyone connected.

Because Dialpad works across iOS, Android, PC, and Mac through its mobile and desktop apps, their employees can stay connected no matter what devices they're using. (Plus Dialpad also works on web browsers, no downloads needed.) Stax’s supervisors can also remotely help agents with screen sharing and Dialpad's Real-Time Assist cards.

Xero

Accounting software giant, Xero, has thousands of employees and offices on four continents, with a global network of anywhere workers. As well as hybrid workplace software, Xero needed to consolidate company-wide conversations into a single enterprise communications platform that works on any device.

Enter Dialpad, which provides one global platform for all offices and staff. They can all access tools like call analytics and seamless integrations, and the rapid deployment engine can provision users and create new offices in minutes. Dialpad also saved Xero $500,000 in annual telephony costs!

Blue Cliff College

It’s not just the business world that’s handling hybrid working challenges and solutions—schools and universities are also moving to a new way of learning. Blue Cliff College has six campuses in three states and uses Dialpad to operate a flexible workplace with remote and hybrid learning.

The necessary switch to a remote model in 2020 made the college realize that their existing PBX phone system was outdated. With Dialpad, they saved thousands each month on conferencing, and enrolment has actually increased.

Today, Blue Cliff has found new ways to communicate with students and faculty. (Like through text messaging!)

FAQs about hybrid workplace solutions

What is hybrid work?

In a hybrid work model (which is quickly becoming "the future of work"), the workforce consists of in-office and remote workers.

Some organizations let employees divide their time between working on-site and at home. Others have some staff working full-time in the office and some who are permanently remote. Hybrid work often involves hot desking and BYOD (bring your own device).

Lower employee occupancy means you’ll need less physical space for your office, which makes hybrid work a cost-effective option. You can recruit from anywhere in the world, and staff are typically more engaged and motivated when they have flexible working hours.

However, to make it work, you’ll need to reimagine your work environment and technology, and ensure you treat your in-office and remote workers equally.
