Worried About Losing Your Technology While Working Remotely?Are You Worried About Losing Your Technology? Remote work has been on the rise for some time, even before the COVID-19 pandemic made it the safest way for a business to operate. Naturally, this makes organization a particularly crucial thing to consider, especially as public areas reopen as workspace options.

Let’s go over a few best practices that can help prevent you and your team from losing technology as work is done remotely.

Organize, Organize, Organize

Are You Worried About Losing Your Technology? When working on the move, it can be only too easy to lose track of your assorted possessions—especially if you don’t have a proper means of carrying them from place to place. Therefore, investing in a carrying case of some sort and keeping your technology arranged inside not only helps ensure you have what you need to be productive, it also helps you to be sure that you can get everything out and away and back into storage more efficiently.

Of course, you should also double-check that everything is where it should be every so often, especially when you’re in a public place.

Keep Your Carrying Cases Closed

Here’s the thing: the easier it is for someone to sidle on by and take something, the more likely they are to do so. How often have you seen someone walk away from their laptop bag with their laptop out in the open? How often have you seen someone carrying around a backpack or a messenger bag with it open, their devices practically falling out? It may not seem like a huge deterrent but keeping your carrying cases fastened up can greatly discourage someone from trying any funny business.

Help Your Tech Stand Out

Making your technology distinctive—adding noticeable stickers, using brightly-colored peripherals, and the like—can provide extra benefits when it comes to keeping track of it.

First of all, if you do happen to leave it behind somewhere, it makes it much easier to describe to someone so that you can claim it. Secondly, making it more noticeable will help make it less likely for you to forget it in the first place. Finally, the more recognizable and distinctive it is, the less likely it is that someone will try to abscond with it.

Keep Track of Your Technology With More Technology

Finally, there are many tech solutions available that are intended to help protect your other gizmos. Of course there are the applications that both Android and iOS have built into their platforms to help locate a lost device, and there are also other add-on solutions and physical dongles that serve the same purpose available. Investing in a few could be what prevents you from losing a far more expensive device and the valuable data it holds.

While COMPANYNAME can only do so much to help you keep track of your IT solutions, we can do far more to help you get the most use out of them. For assistance in managing your business technology, give us a call at PHONENUMBER and ask about our managed services.
