Microsoft Partner Logicalis’ Newest Platform Enhances The Digital Worker

‘Digital workers may work at different hours with different devices and can access work anywhere, all the time. So enabling systems in a platform that allows them to be empowered to do the job on their time, the better work/life balance. That’s really the driver,’ says Tony Fischer, Microsoft alliance leader for Logicalis.

Logicalis’ newest collaboration suite harnesses Microsoft and Cisco technologies while launching the digital workspace forward and helping the next generation workforce manage, measure and scale their productivity.

“We’re focused on allowing them to work in a little different of a schedule than maybe your traditional worker in a 9 to 5 schedule,” Tony Fischer, Microsoft alliance leader for New York-based MSP Logicalis, told CRN. “Digital workers may work at different hours with different devices and can access work anywhere, all the time. So enabling systems in a platform that allows them to be empowered to do the job on their time, the better work/life balance. That’s really the driver.”

The idea behind the new offering, called the Logicalis Collaboration Suite, is to empower organizations to bridge and support the new digital worker, he said. It also brings a balance into productivity with that empowerment.

The suite focuses on a majority of items, such as communication platforms, and improves the worker’s adoption and usage scores as well as their productivity framework.

It also focuses on the collaborative nature and making sure access to content is standardized. Mobility is also a key aspect, he said, as the suite makes sure systems can be deployed and enabled however an employee would want them to be.

“The way we work has changed, age demographics have shifted, values are evolving and 41 percent of millennials say they are stressed most of the time, a group that will account for half the workforce by 2025,” Michael Chanter, Logicalis Group COO, said in a statement. “We can’t keep extracting additional productivity from our people, something must give. We believe employee empowerment supported and measured by the right collaboration tools is the key to creating a digital workplace fit for a digital generation.”

The suite, built on Cisco and Microsoft technologies and delivered as a managed service, helps organizations scale the digital collaboration experience.

“We did see the impact and the influence of this market,” Fischer said. “They’re just digital natives. They want everything available quickly, and when you don’t have those systems in place it’s a hinderance in how they want to work. Without having a system that enables them, supports them and drives them to how they want to function in their roles, they become less satisfied.”

And to have an unsatisfied employee deliver to the end customer is not conducive, he said.

“This isn’t just about implementing technology and hoping that people will use it,” he said. “It’s really focused on the adoption scores and really driving the value of these utilities to the workforce. That’s really where companies return their investment, not on the people that they hire and put into roles but the effectiveness of being able to do the job when they’re there.”
