Making 'work from home' transition effortless


Johannesburg, 12 Aug 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has forced many companies to embrace work-from-home solutions. For some, the transition may just become the “new normal”.

Facebook founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg told staff it was "aggressively opening up remote hiring" in July. He expects half of its workforce to do their jobs outside Facebook's offices over the next five to 10 years.

So, even amid a global crisis, by permitting offsite work, businesses are getting access to overhead savings like lower office equipment and supply expenses, and employees are reporting greater productivity and higher job satisfaction, which is translating into enormous profitability for their employers.

If you are considering transitioning to a remote work environment, Universe Direct has the perfect IT equipment solution for you. Universe Direct Rentals can help ensure a quick and efficient transition from the office environment to working from home. PCs, laptops, MacBooks and mobile workstations can be delivered, installed and help get the job done as efficiently as possible.

"One of the latest trends is the adoption of the mini PC, as it provides similar capabilities to a desktop, creating a dual-purpose work PC and a home PC option. There has been a noticeable spike in interest and sales of these devices, and we are ready to fulfil the demand," says Andrew Craig, owner of Universe Direct.

Universe Direct ensures you get 24/7 service backup, which helps with any technical difficulties employees may endure working remotely. “It can be very frustrating and unproductive for your employees if they do not have the technical equipment and the right support when they work from home,” says Craig.

"Universe Direct is South Africa’s largest distributer of refurbished IT equipment and we pride ourselves in our ongoing guarantee of both equipment and onsite and remote service."
