Here’s How We Have Enabled Remote Working for Continued Productivity?
Being a certified Software development company, we already had corporate protocols in place which allow us to reimagine the new business working environments for all departments without any hassle.
Our team is working with highly encrypted communication tools (Pidgin), teamwork collaboration tools (Asana), uninterrupted internet connection, and other working platforms. These tools help in creating in-office environments at home and allow them to stay connected with other team members and our clients as we usually do.
By keeping in mind the employee safety, continued productivity of our team and devotion towards our client commitments, Xicom Technologies have taken a few essential steps:
Prioritize Employee Safety and Enhance Work Engagement!
To safeguard the health of our employees and community, Xicom has permitted their team to do work from home by providing them with all hardware and software tools that they need to manage their projects smoothly and timely. To create a fine-work balance and avoid such technical issues, our network team is closely working with our staff and provides proper training to access tools to avoid hampering employee productivity.
VPN Configured Devices To Maximize Data Security!
Since our client’s data security is our priority; therefore, to maintain the safety of the valuable data and prevent cybersecurity threats, Xicom has provided VPN configured devices to their teams.
The teams which are working on complex and more significant projects are provided with specially configured desktops that allow our engineers to put their best effort even at home and full-fill the need of the clients on-time, as they always do.
Ensuring Timely Project Deliveries!
For meeting project quality commitments and on-time deliveries, our team is using multiple communication channels and tools to meet project timelines and ensure seamless communication with clients.
Using Asana For Project Management: As-usual, our entire team from higher management to development team, are using Asana for project allocation to keep track of project completion. Despite working from home, we are using this incredible tool for task management across all the teams and departments.
Pidgin for Hassle-Free Communication With Team: Pidgin is a versatile chat program that can run on multiple operating systems including Windows, Linux and others and allow smooth transfer of files. Therefore, our employees are using Pidgin to stay connected and working together as a team, even at different locations.
Skype For Uninterrupted Communication With Clients: To ensure business continuity in times of coronavirus, our project managers are following the same communication protocol with clients and often provide project updates with their regular weekly skype calls.
Working With Same Time Shifts: Many enterprises are clueless about how businesses are working during the COVID-19 Period? However, for clear, transparent and timely communication, Xicom’s entire team is working remotely at the same time shift as they did earlier.
As we are privileged to be a trusted mobile app development company to thousands of clients worldwide, therefore, we are taking all necessary measures to provide full support and high level of services as they expect from us. And our team will promise you to be at their best during this severe working scenario and ensure quality services.
