A lot of things have changed this year about the way companies do business, and that most definitely includes their approach to workplace modernization. It used to be a matter of giving people the office technology they needed to be successful; now, however, it’s about thinking outside the office. The challenge today is supplying employees with the tools they need to be productive in remote settings. A big part of this, of course, is video calling.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of pain points that employees typically deal with in the course of making video calls for work each day. Perhaps the most significant one is trouble with slow Wi-Fi connections – when your Wi-Fi is slow, it can cause all sorts of difficulties with video conferencing, including interruption, lag, and sometimes complete breakdowns. This can impede collaboration among work teams and even cause group projects to fall apart entirely. It’s imperative, therefore, for people to have a way of communicating that’s smooth and seamless, even in the face of potential Wi-Fi issues.
Thankfully, that’s exactly what you get from Microsoft’s latest mobile device, the Surface Duo. With the Surface Duo, remote employees can experience dual-screen functionality while connecting through a mobile service provider – such as Verizon – instead of their home Wi-Fi. This should alleviate any speed limitations that users may have dealt with previously. In addition, both M365 and Android apps are available on the Surface Duo, which enables a high level of on-the-go productivity.
Of course, when evaluating mobile devices today, it’s important to discuss security. While security has always been crucial in business, it’s only becoming more so this year – as more and more employees shift to remote work, there are more endpoints for IT to worry about, and it’s difficult to manage them all. Fortunately, though, the Surface Duo offers added security features over competing mobile devices. For instance, the Surface Duo can be unlocked using a fingerprint reader, which allows remote employees a more secure way to use their devices on a daily basis.
This is just the beginning. For users who adopt the Surface Duo now, there are a whole host of benefits just waiting to be discovered. Here are a few of the device’s most notable specs:
- 360-degree hinge
- 2 touchscreens
- Capability to use two apps at once
- Option to type on one screen, view on the other
- Drag and drop across screens
- All-day battery life
- Compatibility with other Surface accessories, such as Surface headphones and slim pen
