Want to have a glimpse into the nightmare world of IT staff? Just close your eyes and picture wires. Lots of wires. This discomforting image is just one part of an ongoing horrific tragedy: IT staff and office workers in general are faced with an array of business applications and technologies that seemingly only become more numerous and complicated with the release of each new model or update. What may appear to be a bundle of wires or overabundance of software features can quickly become a detriment to any business, and can leave your technologically savvy co-workers pulling out their hair and quitting their jobs.
Current forecasts regarding what the office of tomorrow is going to look like does little to diminish this overbearing complexity- omnichannel communication plans, AI driven contact centers, and the ongoing need to drive business via social media are all major contributors to a clutter problem that has been rotting away at promising enterprises for decades. In recent years, Algo Communication Products Ltd. has experienced many of these problems vicariously through our clients, and have heard on multiple occasions the complaints of staff members who believe that the tools that they use in their personal lives are exponentially better than those they use at work. These observations have been hammered home by a number of studies performed by Avaya, the results of which indicate that many employees feel that the ease and flexibility with which they utilize their personal devices dwarfs any of the technological interactions that they have while on the job.
Fortunately, communications technology has been able to progress in leaps and bounds in an attempt to meet the demand for simplicity. Taking note of worker preferences, Avaya’s Desktop Experience aims to mask or alleviate complexity while empowering employees with state-of-the-art communication tools.
