Start now with DEKOM into the Smart Office

Home office, smart office, video conference, telemedicine, virtual workplace, mobile working - all current information on one page.

The best time to start was the day before yesterday, but if you start today, you'll still be in the race.

The world is in a state of emergency due to current circumstances. Some companies prohibit their employees from travelling by train and put employees in taxis. One third of German companies generally do without meetings, congresses and events. Telemedicine start-ups are experiencing a rush. From now on, sick leaves without a visit to the doctor are possible. There is a veritable boom in video conferences, from which shares of providers such as Zoom are benefiting. Google and Microsoft are even giving away their conferencing tools, while their employees themselves stay in their home offices. Large Hamburg-based companies explicitly encourage their employees to take their service laptops home with them.

We are literally overwhelmed by requests, because more and more companies are asking us: can we change our work overnight, let the employees work from home, do without meetings on site without losing productivity?

Yes, of course you can, and you'll gain a lot in productivity! The technology is ready, and has been for a long time – and most likely you already have the necessary infrastructure. Say goodbye to the analogue office, start with DEKOM into the Smart Office.

DEKOM actively supports companies in cushioning risks. This is why we are now waving provisioning fees, contract periods and bureaucratic hurdles. We are reducing the provision times for our professional video communication to a few hours and, through monthly terminability, we are taking all risks associated with long-term contracts.

Microsoft Teams (Download)

Teams should be the central contact point for a virtual team. At the heart of the system is the chat, where members can quickly exchange information. If there is a greater need for discussion, a meeting can be planned or started online immediately. And so that everyone has the same information, teams can also store files. If that is not enough, there are connections to many other Office and Microsoft tools. For example, new files can be created for Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote or existing files can be linked.

Even connections to SharePoint or Wikis are no problem. And via interfaces with OneDrive, Outlook and Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams is connected to other frequently used applications. So you can talk directly from teams to someone who only has one account with Skype for Business.
