Daniel Fields, Executive Director, Services Business of Lenovo APAC

As Australia eases restrictions, paving the way for offices to reopen, LenovoTM announced the launch of its Workplace Solutions portfolio designed to give firms the confidence to welcome their employees back. With solutions like simplified workspace booking, utilisation analytics and smart facilities management coupled with professional services, businesses can provide flexible working options offering benefits of in-office interactions and remote work.

What is the market offering of Workplace Solutions?

“Given that employees’ expectations have changed, firms recognise that reopening the office does not mean reverting to the pre-COVID status quo. Employees want the flexibility to log in easily anytime, anywhere, and focus on the work that matters without having to wrangle with tech issues,” Daniel Fields, Executive Director, Services Business of Lenovo APAC said.

“The Lenovo Workplace Solutions offering is built to help companies provide a compelling employee experience that drives productivity and attracts talent. This includes tools that enhance communications and create efficiencies by reducing administrative workloads, are secure by design and powered by extensive support services,” Fields further commented.

Firms are increasingly turning to technology to manage the complex needs of a hybrid workforce. This is corroborated by Lenovo’s recent global study of CIOs, which reveals that CIOs are managing areas beyond traditional purview, like HR and talent acquisition (39%).

Tasked with these responsibilities, CIOs need cohesive tech solutions that will free up their time from the maintenance and upkeep of IT. This enables them to focus on more strategic imperatives like building an attractive workplace in view of a hybrid workforce, by provisioning innovative consumer-grade apps that employees want, fast across remote desktops.
