      A Bit of Fun Can Get Work Done Faster

      For starters, it may help to get some more context into what gamification is, exactly.

      Understanding Workplace Gamification

      At its core, gamification is the philosophy of making rote processes and tasks more engaging by taking the components that make games fun and integrating them into these tasks and processes. In theory, this will result in a more content workforce, and a more successful business, and there is plenty of anecdotal evidence to support how effective this approach can be.

      For just one example, one only has to turn to the many different educational applications and computer software titles available today. Concealed behind a fun story and the colorful characters driving the plot, the game’s mechanics actively encourage learning by requiring the young player to complete activities designed to improve their skills in mathematics and grammar. In this way, the learning process becomes more fun, motivating the children playing the game to continue doing so.

      The same approach can be found in many applications aimed towards adults--specifically, adults in the workplace.

      Gamifying the Workplace

      One of the best things about workplace gamification is how easily it can be applied to someone’s processes at any level. For example:

      • Training processes can be gamified by using learning portals that introduce new recruits and veterans alike to basic workplace requirements and procedures.
      • Gamified achievements and rewards can be given to employees for accomplishing more and sticking to set procedures.
      • In the game format, feedback and contextual correction can be given live, allowing your employees to experience real-time training benefits.

      Of course, we also have to discuss the benefit to the well-being of your employees that gamification can bring. Many companies have elected to gamify the health status of their employees over their daily tasks. This has helped to fight the impacts that a sedentary job has been shown to have on an employee’s health. With healthier employees, companies also see decreased absenteeism, as sick days become less frequently needed.

      Finally, gamification is hugely beneficial to team building. Look at how popular eSports have become amongst companies, with coworkers forming teams to play together as a group. Sure, this makes them a more cohesive and communicative team, but the real benefit comes from the engagement your team will feel as a result of these games. Ideally, it is an employee who is left to organize and manage these activities, making the results much more organic.

      While eSports are a little out of our professional wheelhouse, we can assist your company’s productivity with numerous IT solutions and other strategies! To find out more about what we can do for you, reach out to us at (813) 749-0895.

      Tip of the Week: New Uses for an Old Mobile Device

      Keep in mind that these are all only suggestions, and should all be run by your IT resource for approval before you try to tweak anything.

      Remote into Your Home Desktop

      While we can help you where solutions that allow your team to access their workstations from home are involved, you and your users may find yourself needing the opposite connectivity at times. There are many apps that, when installed on both devices, allow you to turn your Android device into a terminal tied to your home system.

      Turn it into a Video Conferencing Hub

      With a few older devices, you can easily create a video communications network to collaborate with others in the office, or even others across the world. A stand, a power source, and a Wi-Fi connection are all you need, and you’ll have a reliable means of reaching out via video.

      Make it a Decorative Feature for Your Desk

      Real productivity isn’t possible in a completely sterile environment, so why not jazz up your workspace with a photograph. Find out if the cloud service of your choice has a slideshow function (as Google Photos does) and let your phone rotate out your photos. Alternatively, there are webcam apps that can deliver a livestream of some remote location directly to your desk, if you prefer.

      If you’d like something with some more functionality, you could always set up your old smartphone to be a desk clock or calendar to give yourself a quick-access reference point for these needs.

      Turn it into a Security Camera

      If there’s something special you want to keep an eye on while you’re at the office (or again, vice versa), you can also set up your mobile device to act as an impromptu security camera. Various applications are available that will allow you to stream a live feed from your mobile device to a web browser, keeping you in-the-know of everything that is happening while you’re away. This isn’t really a replacement for physical security for your business, but it’s a great way to keep tabs on your dog at home.

      Of course, if your mobile device is ready for retirement, you should at least dispose of it responsibly and properly. Reach out to our team to learn more about recycling your electronics securely, and for any other IT-related questions, at (813) 749-0895.

      Backup Delivers Peace of Mind in Times of Crisis

      Well, here we are...A disaster has struck millions of businesses from around the world in the form of Coronavirus. While having a dedicated backup system probably is the last of your worries at the moment, you may be surprised to learn just how important comprehensive backup strategies can be in times where you lose access to your physical infrastructure. 

      Today’s redundancy best practices dictate that you keep at least one copy of your data in an offsite data center to ensure that you have access to it if something happens to your servers. We recommend skipping all of the consumer-grade backup solutions out there, and using a device called a BDR (short for backup and disaster recovery). In times like this, your BDR can be used as a temporary server, ensuring that you and your team have access to the data they need while they are being forced to work remotely.

      This year’s World Backup Day may come at an inopportune time, but regardless of what is going on in the world the following practices remain important:

      • The 3-2-1 Backup Method - The 3-2-1 method means that you keep at least three copies of your data. Two of these copies can be stored on central infrastructure, but one is kept in an offsite data center or other cloud storage facility.
      • Backup Your Backup - You will want to check and double-check all backups to ensure they were successful. There are several reasons why a backup would fail, so you can’t just assume they are working as intended. Check them and then check them again. Your diligence will pay off when you need the data. 
      • Protect Your Backup - You will want to put password protection on all devices that contain data. Today, many of these systems come with options for multi-factor authentication, which ensures that you get an extra layer of protection. You will also want to ensure that your storage is covered by an up-to-date virus and malware protection.

      If you would like to talk to one of our IT experts about your data storage or building a backup and disaster recovery strategy that will work to ensure that your data is always protected, call us today at (813) 749-0895.
