Five Ways to Make the Daily Grind More Fun

Five Ways to Make the Daily Grind More Fun

Five Ways to Make the Daily Grind More Fun

Day-to-day life carried a certain amount of redundancy before the pandemic. Now, one year into COVID life and working from home, the daily grind can feel, well, grinding. At Trinitas, we believe in the importance of infusing fun into each workday, mixing things up and treating yourself to small breaks, schedule shake-ups, a de-clutter session or window bird watching. Here are a few of our favorite ways to fun things up!

 

1. Set a 20-minute Rule

It’s easy to get sucked into the desk. Hours might go by before you realize you haven’t even looked up from your screen. But movement throughout the day is a great way to increase circulation and creativity. Make a point to set a timer on your phone or computer, reminding you to get up and move, dance, walk or stretch every 20 minutes. Set up the printer in a different room, so you have to get up from your desk and walk to get documents. And make sure to get outside! Once every hour, walk to the end of the driveway, grab the mail or simply sit on the front steps and breath in some fresh air.

 

2. Refresh Your Surroundings 

Our workstations or spaces can quickly become stagnant. The same post-it note from last March is still sitting next to the keyboard. Those family pictures are sweet, but pretty outdated. Make a point to shake up your surroundings with new photos, fresh art, a new stack of inspiring books or Buddha board.

 

3. Start a Window Bird Watching Log

Sitting on a boring Zoom call? Just need to take a break from the project for a few minutes? Look outside. Start learning your local birds, and keep track of which ones you see, and when, throughout the year. This is a great one to turn into a family project. Make a bird bingo board and get everyone involved!

 

4. De-clutter!

Don’t limit the desk purge to once or twice a year. Make this a monthly habit—throw away those papers you’ve been piling in the corner. Toss the pen that ran out of ink years ago. A clean slate can do wonders for productivity and mood!

 

5. Watch a TED Talk 

TED, which stands from technology, education and design, showcases “ideas worth spreading” in short (18-minutes or less), powerful presentations by the world’s leading minds. Add one or two to your weekly routine for a fun, inspiring break from the daily grind.

 

While the past year has been grueling at times, it has also taught us to embrace the little things and the importance of small doses of creativity and inspiration. As we transition back to a more normal work environment, make sure to continue your favorite daily work habits—the ones that brighten things up, lift your mood and increase your productivity.

Gartner 2022 Tech Trends

Gartner 2022 Tech Trends

Gartner 2022 Tech Trends

Gartner recently released its 2022 Top Strategic Technology Trends. In our review of the article, we identified the three strategic technology trends we feel you should focus on.

  • Data Fabric – Gartner defines data fabric as a design concept that serves as an integrated layer (fabric) of data connecting processes. It utilizes continuous analytics over existing, discoverable, and inferenced metadata assets to support the design, deployment, and utilization of integrated and reusable data across all environments, including hybrid and multi-cloud platforms. Data fabric leverages both human and machine capabilities to access data in place or support its consolidation where appropriate. It continuously identifies and connects data from disparate applications to discover unique, business-relevant relationships between the available data points.

    For example, a supply chain leader using data fabric can add newly encountered assets to known relationships between supplier delays and production delays more rapidly and improve decisions with new data. Trinitas’ multilayered data access combined with an unwavering commitment to client satisfaction ensures our clients enjoy an impactful, elevated data fabric experience.

  • Distributed Enterprises – According to Gartner, “Distributed enterprises reflect a digital-first, remote-first business model to improve employee experiences, digitalize consumer and partner touchpoints, and build out product experiences. Distributed enterprises better serve the needs of remote employees and consumers, who are fueling demand for virtual services and hybrid workplaces.” At Trinitas, we were ahead of the curve on this strategy, implementing our Enterprise Anywhere platform. Trinitas Enterprise Anywhere helps companies accomplish distributed enterprises and more.
  • Total Experience – “Total experience is a business strategy that integrates employee experience, customer experience, user experience across multiple touchpoints to accelerate growth.” Trinitas offers a fierce commitment to our clients’ business strategies. As a company, we embody total experience at every level, from happy employees to satisfied clients.

If you’re interested in integrating these important strategic technology trends into your company’s core competencies, contact Trinitas today. We’re happy to provide a free consultation about how our multi-tiered, world-class telecom services can help.

The Benefits of Working from Home are on Full Display—Is Your Enterprise Company Ready?

The Benefits of Working from Home are on Full Display—Is Your Enterprise Company Ready?

The Benefits of Working from Home are on Full Display—Is Your Enterprise Company Ready?

In a world of extreme uncertainty, one thing has become clear for many employers and employees alike: working from home is actually pretty great! Sure, it comes with some challenges, but for the most part, studies—and now a huge global experiment—show that working from home affords a multitude of benefits.

For employers, those benefits include happier employees, but also an expanded recruiting pool, allowing organizations to cast a wider net in search of ideal candidates. Additionally, working from home obviously significantly reduces company overhead.

At home, employees tend to be more creative, productive, and enjoy a greater sense of wellbeing. There’s also the plus of flexible hours, allowing your workforce to maximize productivity when it is most convenient. Families with special needs also enjoy increased flexibility, and with less exposure to large groups of people, sick leave decreases. And of course, there’s the bonus of being able to squeeze in a workout during your lunch hour.

However, it is worth noting that working from home does present challenges for enterprise-level entities. From an IT standpoint, security is an issue, and your IT department might be plagued with support headaches. This is where Trinitas can come in and make everyone’s life much easier—and working from home a more permanent solution for those who find it to be a valuable life solution.

As a trusted telecom company, we’re experts in convenience and customer satisfaction, from employee to CEO. We can bundle products, deliver them directly to employees’ homes, and offer a tech support extension of your organization to free up your IT talent. We can also create a single, streamlined billing center to make sure that, even when your employees are located throughout the country, or even the world, your telecom invoicing, billing, and data management are all in one easily accessible location.

  • Device recycling and buyback programs—Go green and save money!
  • Software customization and integration—Create a customized ordering platform and simplify the ordering process for employees near and far!

  • Device repair and care—Save time and keep your employees safe by avoiding device repair stores and hassle. We’ll take care of it all for you and save you money in the process!
  • Device kitting program—Let us make sure devices have the latest apps installed, include protective covers, and are fully ready to go when they arrive at your employees’ doorsteps.

Why Do IT Modernization Efforts Often Fail? Here are Three Common Reasons.

Why Do IT Modernization Efforts Often Fail? Here are Three Common Reasons.

Why Do IT Modernization Efforts Often Fail? Here are Three Common Reasons.

In a recent article for ciodive.com, CTO and ICF Kyle Tuberson examines why so many IT modernizations are unsuccessful. Many agencies and enterprises have ambitious goals for modernizing information systems and processes. Leaders are seeking agile platforms to create needed applications and improve end user experiences. CIOs understand implementing advanced technology and processes can optimize their respective business. However, these decision-makers can be poorly prepared for the roadblocks that can occur.

Decision-makers need to fully understand the inhibitors of digital transformation, how to mitigate them, and how to plan correctly. Below are three common mistakes you must avoid to be successful.

1. Not holistically assessing your organization

Unfortunately, many CIOs take a tech modernization plunge without fully understanding their holistic ecosystem. Leaders need to assess the current strengths and weaknesses, workflows, automations, and employee support before deciding on implementation.

2. Not aligning the proper strategy 

Mission leaders must analyze in great detail the desired outcomes at the beginning of the undertaking and work backwards to determine the best paths. Just like taking a road trip or developing a business plan, it’s imperative to put a strategy in place before departing. You need a destination and step by step implementation to assure you successfully reach your destination. Technological modernization is no different. SaaS, equipment purchasing, automation, etc. require strong critical thinking to ensure ROI.

3. Routine maintenance

Post modernization/implementation routine maintenance of the solution is required. This means constant reviews of the workflows, vendor support, cost savings, personnel support, communication, and more. Modernization should not be thought of as a “one and done” solution.

When it comes to companies’ wireless ecosystems, creating strategy, successful workflow implementation, simplified equipment purchases, automation, asset management, and areas to save cost are extremely important.

Most businesses should consider strategic vendor alliances who understand your business and the outcomes you are trying to achieve so they can work with you to get there.

Companies experience significant savings when they have:

  • Successfully implemented technology modernization
  • New automation that works perfectly and saves employee tasks
  • Processes that align with your business goals
  • Workflows that guarantee success
  • Lower cost equipment purchases
  • improved personnel support

Whether you already have some wireless device modernization plans in place or you don’t yet have a concrete plan, Trinitas can help you create and better implement your short- and long-term strategies.

We offer solutions that address all the above and our Enterprise Anywhere product suite can manage your wireless program from anywhere in the world.

When Old is New Again

When Old is New Again

Jeremiah 6:16 This is what the Lord says: Stand at the crossroads and look:
ask for the ancient paths; ask where the good way is and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls.

 

People love bygone eras—the old ways of doing business, when handshakes meant something, and customer
service was the thing that defined a company. Serving others was a way to improve lives, communities, and businesses.

Sadly, some of these ways have been lost. For too many companies and vendors, money comes first, and clients are a distant second.
And it’s not always for lack of dedication to a better consumer experience or improved work environment.
Often, it’s the lack of good, reliable providers to help the business model succeed.
C Suites want to find that provider that fits their innate desire for their business— and their customers—to succeed. 

Finding the business partners and vendors that fit your needs can be daunting, especially relating to your technology and telecom support.
However, when it comes to fully-integrated, seamless, completely supported telecom services, your search has ended.
Trintias is founded on those bygone eras—the fully customized business experience—that deliver cost savings and serious satisfaction.
Our handshakes mean something. 

At Trinitas, we are fiercely committed to our clients. It’s a commitment that ripples through your entire company in the form
of technical support, product updates, device preparation and more.

Interested? Contact us for a FREE brief consultative call. Trinitas’ services are comprehensive and vast. Learn more.

Is It Time to Get Rid of the IT Department? Business Is Trending that Way— Here’s Why.

Is It Time to Get Rid of the IT Department? Business Is Trending that Way— Here’s Why.

Is It Time to Get Rid of the IT Department? Business Is Trending that Way— Here’s Why.

In last month’s article titled, “It’s Time to Get Rid of the IT Department,” Joe Peppard of the Wall Street Journal makes the case—and a very valid one—for dismantling IT departments and absorbing the talent into everyday business practice. Writes Peppard, “IT departments are for a bygone era and are ill-suited to the demands of a digital-first world.” He continues, “The problem isn’t with the people or the leaders. It’s with the whole idea of IT departments in the first place, which sets up IT to fail. The encouraging news is there are also a small number of pioneers who are ditching their IT departments. And their examples offer models for others looking to do the same.”

Peppard bases his argument in the fact that technology is no longer an option for businesses to succeed; it is a competitive necessity. Current structures require IT departments to forecast their needs months, and sometimes years, in advance of when they will be deployed—a stark contrast to other business units that can be nimble and reactive to changing business landscapes and consumer demands.

So, how do we get from here to a new world in which IT is integrated into every aspect of business? Peppard offers some ideas. “I have worked with several companies that are moving to get rid of their IT departments, instead making IT a part of every business unit. At these companies, the leadership team is working from a design premise to realize value from IT as opposed to one focused on managing IT. While this might seem subtle, it represents a profound shift. As one chief information officer told me, ‘In three to five years everyone will work in IT.’”

At Trinitas, we recognized this trend early on, and have been developing our Enterprise Anywhere program to meet the needs of an evolving workforce. It tackles the challenges of modern technological demands at every level, and bridges the gap between business headquarters and home offices. Here are a few of the benefits of Enterprise Anywhere:

  • Custom online platforms to manage entire wireless device ecosystems that support both in-office and work-from-home employees
  • Telecom expense management that can be accessed security from anywhere
  • Online product and ordering solutions that offer built-in spend management functionality
  • Free technical support
  • Shipping to both business and work-from-home employee addresses
  • Device buyback programs that support both in-office and work-from-home employees
  • Device kitting options that free up employee time, company money, and reduce the need for employees to venture into crowded store settings
  • Accessories from home

Concludes Peppard, “None of this will be easy. Companies have to figure out how to allocate and deploy IT resources in a new, decentralized world, when different groups’ needs can change from month to month. Organizations need IT. But they most certainly don’t need an IT department.”

Mostly, we agree with Peppard. Organizations do need IT, but not necessarily an entire IT department. However, we disagree that making this change will not be easy. Here at Trinitas, we specialize in just that—making your company’s transition to bottom-up and top-down IT integration easy and seamless
