As businesses of all sizes around the world look to implement more and more technology into the workplace, a major scene change is appearing in many organisations.

Although it may seem obvious to many of us, the benefits of digital and online technology can provide a business with a crucial advantage when it comes to ensuring success, no matter what industry you are in.

The popularity of new workplace technologies is changing many aspects of a business's’ daily practices, with even the traditional office environment becoming rarer and rarer. Employees across a wide range of industries now expect to be given their own devices to work from, whether this be a laptop, tablet or smartphone. These devices are also no longer tethered to a desk, as flexible working and hot desking become the norm in many companies.

Centralised networks and servers mean that employees are able to create, share and collaborate on work far easier than ever before, helped by cloud-ready platforms such as Office 365 and Google Docs that allow real-time editing and changes.

Elsewhere in the business, videoconferencing or telepresence technologies will be replacing traditional conference calls, allowing teams around the world to stay in contact and work far more efficiently together.

Even the building itself may be transforming, with biometric scans replacing traditional key cards, and smart lighting and heating systems allowing for major energy savings when no one is around.

This truly is the technology-friendly office of the future - is your business up to scratch?
