More is More with a Modern Workplace!

Driving productivity, collaboration, flexibility, and mobility has never been easier

The demand for having a flexible and mobile workforce is something that has flooded every business and troubled many IT departments long before Covid ever hit. There’s nothing novel about that. Before the pandemic hit, Gartner released a study predicting that by 2030, the demand for remote work will increase by 30%. Fast forward a few years…this number has probably been already met, if not exceeded!

As our lives return to some forms of “normality”, 82% of company leaders will be including remote working some of the time with more than half shifting totally to remote. This shift has inevitably stressed-out IT, both people and systems. How is a business going to deliver its data, systems, and applications to its workforce? How is it going to control and manage the devices used to access these resources? What about securing all of this? How can a business achieve all this? Sounds overwhelming! This is the perfect fit for a Modern Workplace.

The Modern Digital Workplace

There’s no denying it. The nature of work has changed, radically and rapidly. A business needs to keep up. Employees expect to work securely from anywhere, from any device, a place and space to collaborate, be more efficient and productive. A modern workplace is the answer to deliver this and much more.

It’s no secret that when a business enhances the quality and effectiveness of their employee’s work experience, they’re happier, feel valued, satisfied, more engaged, and well, more likely to stay on! Mckinsey states that improving communication and collaboration technologies could increase productivity of interaction workers by 20 – 25 percent! A business needs to provide its workforce with this feeling of empowerment, and must do so securely, all the while protecting its vital IT assets.

Veracloud has developed four fundamental pillars in deploying the ultimate Modern Workplace. An onboarding process ensures that all business information is collected and the appropriate features aligned to business strategy. Our Modern Workplace is a journey towards an enhanced experience, not only for the business, but for its employees. Providing the best the Microsoft ecosystem has to offer, topped up with industry-leading integration, improved communications with teams, endpoint and device management, information protection and security, user protection, personalised and fully-customisable intranets, and a tonne of other features. As a fully managed solution, we will gradually roll-out features and be there to support employees to ensure a seamless transition towards adapting to new ways of working. Reach out today. Your employees and business will thank you tomorrow!

Veracloud Partners with Cloudflare

Protect your online business with Cloudflare

We’ve all heard the sayings “If your business is not on the Internet, then your business will be out of business” or “If your business is not online, it doesn’t exist”. With Internet search engines becoming the digital yellow pages of recent times, a company’s online presence has become paramount. The benefits from having even a basic website are countless – credibility, brand, generating leads, driving traffic to your website, issuing company announcements, customer services, 24x7x365 visibility, to mention a few.

The downside to this is that if you’re online, your website, and ultimately your business, is also exposed. With cyberthreats evolving and becoming increasingly complex, every business needs to provide safeguards across all its digital layers. Cyber criminals have quickly adapted to exploit our fears around the pandemic abusing the demand people have for information and supplies. The latest report on the Threat Landscape places web-based and web application attacks as highly preferred exploit methods for threat actors. Protecting your Internet presence has become fundamental.

Cloudflare to the rescue!

Veracloud has partnered with Cloudflare to assist companies in creating a trustworthy digital environment for businesses, their employees, and customers alike. Achieving this is possible with Cloudflare’s extensive list of products and solutions. Whether you want to protect your infrastructure, your teams, developers or simply want insights and analytics into your online resources, Cloudflare will deliver. In recognition of this, Cloudflare has been named leader for DDoS Mitigation Solutions across 11 significant providers and also the Customers’ Choice in Q1 2021 for Web Application Firewalls.

Partnering with Cloudflare has been a strategic move that complements Veracloud’s cloud-based products and services. This will enhance the company’s security portfolio by providing businesses, their websites and online services the required security.

Managed Wi-Fi

The Future of Wi-Fi is Now

WVD on Azure Marketplace

Veracloud Launches its WVD Service Offerings in Azure Marketplace

Veracloud is proud to announce that as a Microsoft Gold Partner, we have launched our very first product offerings focused around Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) and placed them within the Azure Marketplace. This is a significant milestone on our journey with Microsoft. Although we just launch on the marketplace, this does not mean we are new to the WVD technology. We have been implementing this solution ever since its early release due to the demand for remote working brought forward by the COVID pandemic.

What type of Services are we offering? 

We feel that the market thinks that virtual app & desktop delivery is something that may only be done by the big guys and we are here to say that, thanks to Microsoft’s public cloud offerings, this statement couldn’t be further from the truth – have a look at our FAQs.

We, therefore, launched the following WVD offerings in the Azure Marketplace:

A FREE 2hour WVD Walkthrough where we give insight into the power of WVD and how it may help your organisation with 10+ users to be empowered with this technology.

The second is a proven, pre-staged WVD 2 Week Implementation which usually follows the free 2hour workshop. Here we roll out the solution and customise it to fit your needs to meet the initial virtual desktop & app delivery requirements.

Interested to find out more? 

We’re a Microsoft Managed Service Provider and our #1 goal is to help you thrive in the cloud through COVID-19 and beyond. After your Windows Virtual Desktop initial deployment, you will not be left alone — our Managed Services team is available around the clock, so you can stay focused on doing your business and sticking to your strength…leave the rest to us. Get in touch now!

COVID-19 Social Distancing

Social distancing is something we all need to have in place for the safety of both our staff and our clientele.

Registering guests and customers is one thing but how do you actively control groups to ensure government restrictions are being met to avoid fines and further spread of the coronavirus?

We have a solution which is fully integrated into cloud-managed Smart Cameras which uses AI and location analytics.  Our Smart Cameras have the capability of setting camera threshold alerts with SMS alerts in a specifically designated zone. This can be extremely helpful for businesses, who can now send alerts to managers when more than the stipulated persons are allowed and seen within a specific zone within a time frame.

How Does it Help with Social Distancing?

This solution gives business 3 types of data-rich insights:

  1. Historical aggregate: How many people were in a given area at a specified time, and where exactly where they in the frame?
  2. Current snapshot: How many people are in a given area right now, and where exactly are they in the frame?
  3. Real-time feed: A stream of the number of people and their exact location in a frame.

We deliver innovative cloud solutions that solve real business problems especially ones which come out of nowhere such as social distancing for COVID-19. Let us help you gain the resilience, agility and create a competitive advantage to thrive. Get in touch.

COVID-19 Contact Tracing

COVID-19 Contact Tracing

COVID-19 is affecting industries and sectors across the globe. Governments now require contact tracing as they placing restrictions on social gatherings and meeting in public places.

Plans are being put in place for customers to be asked to register in advance on check-in as they arrive at bars, malls, restaurants, and retail outlets to aid the reopening of the economy. We developed a guest registration system for contact tracing to help with the containment of the coronavirus.

How Does it Help with Contact Tracing?

Our system allows for users to register themselves quickly and safely, as they enter an establishment using the following steps

    1. User registers onto the Wi-Fi Network
    2. An SMS is sent to their phone
    3. SMS voucher is shown to a member of staff as prove of client registration and allowed entry

What’s Registered?

The registration includes the date and time of a guest’s entry, their full name, address, phone, and email address. Once the guest has registered a unique code is sent via SMS with a timestamp and validation period to show to staff.

What about GDPR?

To comply with data protection rules all data is automatically deleted after 21 days.

We deliver innovative cloud solutions that solve real business problems such as contact tracing. Let us help you gain the resilience, agility and create a competitive advantage to thrive. Get in touch.

COVID-19 Safe Occupancy

COVID-19 Social Occupancy

Real-time visual of social occupancy during this pandemic is vital to help protect customers and staff. Our solution utilizes Wi-Fi to ensure COVID-19 compliance. We do this by measuring, monitoring, predicting, alerting and notifying of potential non-compliant gatherings, or social distancing breaches in physical venues and outdoor locations.

It enables the business to use customer location data from the cloud-managed network to make defined business decisions and increased understanding of footfall to their locations. Businesses can now find out where visitors locate and spend most of their time instore, and how they move within specific locations.

How Does it Help with Social Occupancy?

Our solution uses both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth data to create a detailed overview of all your locations. Data collection includes:

  • Footfall overview and trends
  • Footfall by internal location
  • Device Types
  • Dwell times
  • User tracking in real-time
  • Location heat-maps
  • Return rates

This will tremendously help with:

  • Analysing where most of the customers bunch up in order to put barriers or separation stickers
  • Control groups of people
  • Alert when there are too many people inside at any given time
  • Use the data for other business benefits

We deliver innovative cloud solutions that solve real business problems especially ones which come out of nowhere such as keeping tabs on your establishment’s social occupancy. Let us help you gain the resilience, agility and create a competitive advantage to thrive. Get in touch.
