You are becoming a virtual team member and you know it!

The recent events have pushed us all to move our job and business activities to our home and even if some of you out there might have already been using up-to-date hardware and software even from your home, but not all businesses are prepared to shift that fast.

This the reason why some companies still require their team to be at the office daily in order to sustain their business.

The IT professionals might understand and are living their best days, but we need to understand that transferring the working environment in the homes of the employees isn’t as easy as it looks.

We must also mention the fact that this transfer is happening in a very short period and tech support is essential. I might add, it is so essential that the future of the business depends on it.

When moving our team’s activities to their homes, I’ve understood that this involves many questions among which also productivity and understanding the environment.

As I’ve mentioned earlier, tech support is the most needed, in the scope of understanding your environment, your systems, the interconnection of the systems which are a must for day to day work. You also need to establish a well-defined connection with your employees to ensure business continuity without problems.

Moving your business’s activities to more than one location brings some data security and non-performance threats. This is all happening while you are ensuring business sustainability. Besides setting up extra cybersecurity settings and software, you might be dealing with VPN settings which might sometimes create problems for your employee to connect due to wrong system configuration.

I know that most of the companies have an IT department, but in some cases, you as a business owner have to deal with setting this up at the most rapid time possible.

Not to mention, that the IT departments are dimensioned to handle the office work and not having hundreds or thousands of employees switching to work from home in 24 hours.

So, while setting up things for our small team of 5 and an additional setup done by our team in India, I was thinking that if I am having a hard time with this, imagine how large companies are seeing now issues that they haven’t predicted.

Then it came to me that this is why tech support and service desk service companies exist and we have a great partner from which we can get advice from.

The tech support and service desk service companies are providing ad-hoc advice and services for enabling companies to continue the business and minimize the effects of the preventive measures due to COVID-19.

The support enables solving trivial and complex problems that employees are facing with software and systems in use and take the load of the companies’ IT departments

As you can see, I’ve only used the diseases’ name once J

I think that during this crisis we must help each other even if we are sometimes competitors in business and while the IT support now is an imperative part of your daily routine, we can adapt by using some of the services which were created just for that.

Hope this advice helps and you can find the right partner to help you with these tasks. Having trusted contacts, I can recommend trying the services offered by IT Labs.

As BIG’s League of Legends team’s main partner, the insurance group also backs the department that has an EU Masters championship and multiple trophies under their belt.

“We have been watching the triumphant advance of esports in Europe with great enthusiasm for some time now,” says Martin Gräfer, member of the Board of Management of the insurance group die Bayerische. “With our commitment to Berlin International Gaming, we are now taking the first step in this young, dynamic and rapidly growing environment. It gives us immense pleasure to do this side by side with one of the absolute big players of German esports clubs. We can’t wait to go on a title hunt together with BIG and the BIG Family.”

“As a club, we are very honored to be able to accompany such a traditional insurance company as a partner in esports for the first time,” says Daniel Finkler, CEO Berlin International Gaming. “The partnership is another milestone in our history and shows the relevance of the German esports market.

Die Bayerische and Berlin International Gaming focus on brand visibility and addressing target groups via digital channels in all rights packages. In this way, the insurance group aims to raise its profile among the young target group and create added value for the esports community.

Since 2016, die Bayerische has been the main sponsor of the traditional football club TSV 1860 München and thus has a prominent presence in traditional sports as an insurance partner. In addition, the insurance company also supports clubs and projects in popular sports and is involved in social partnerships. The two brand ambassadors Samuel Koch and multiple Olympic champion Magdalena Neuner, brand ambassador of the sustainable insurance and pension brand Pangaea Life, round off the company’s current sponsorship portfolio.

The insurance group die Bayerische was founded in 1858 and consists of the companies Bayerische Beamten Lebensversicherung a.G. (parent company), BL die Bayerische Lebensversicherung AG and the composite company BA die Bayerische Allgemeine Versicherung AG. The total premium income of the Group amounts to over 600 million euros. The Group is continuously increasing its equity capital and is well above the industry average. Investments of over 4.8 billion euros are managed. More than 12,000 personal advisors are available to Bayerische customers throughout Germany. In a recent comprehensive company analysis, the rating agency Assekurata again awarded Neue Bayerische Leben a quality rating of A+ (“very good”), attesting to the company’s financial strength, which is far above the industry average.
