4 Ways Remote Industry is Shaping the Future

During the last couple of decades, we’ve witnessed and been subject to a massive transformation in the way we share information and interact with one another, both in the professional framework and the social fabric of society. Our world is gradually veering towards a cloud-based platform as multiple organizations have successfully made the shift to a virtualized infrastructure. A 2019 study conducted by Global Workplace Analytics and FlexJobs' has concluded that remote work has grown by 91% over the last decade, and by 159% since 2005. Remote access, control, and support play a huge part in this revolution, as the remote industry’s monumental success is primarily attributed to the productive, time-effective, and lucrative solutions it offers.

It’s utterly undeniable that this is changing the business world, as more organizations are starting to implement remote access to stay on top of the competition and maximize their achievements while focusing on mobility, accessibility, and connectivity throughout a comprehensive approach that ties all different levels of the organization together. According to UpWork’s Future Workforce 2019 report², 73% of all teams will have remote workers by the year 2028.

In addition to the plethora of ingenious solutions that remote tools offer, individuals involved in the remote industry predict that the innovations to come will not only improve current capabilities but bring about novel faculties with massive potential.

So here are 4 ways we think the remote industry is going to shape the future.

1. Remote access, control, and support will dominate the workplace as standard practice

With the current advancements in remote tools and technology, it’s inevitable that we will reach a certain point where adopting a full-fledged remote infrastructure in the workplace becomes standard practice. Even more so, it will be preferable compared to more traditional or conventional methods of communication. As of 2019, we can already notice the big changes happening in the remote industry, particularly as 66% of companies offer remote work positions and 16% are fully remote. We’re gradually moving towards a future where virtualization is dominant and whether you’re sitting in a physical office or you’re at home, the entirety of the staff will be connected and collaborating through one cloud-based platform.

2. Considerable improvement of remote tools on mobile devices

Currently, remote tools on a desktop or laptop have reached an optimal operating level. You have seamless screen sharing, first-rate quality of video conferencing, along with fast and effective information sharing. A 2019 report exploring the state of remote work concluded that “remote work is not a trend — it’s here to stay”, they found that 99% of the 2,500 participants (and remote workers) said that they would prefer to work remotely for the rest of their careers³. Since the number of people working remotely is ever-increasing, the need for advanced and reliable remote tools is also growing, and being able to clear one’s workload using a mobile device should already be a reality.

However, remote tools on mobile devices still have a long way to go. As a freelancer and remote worker, you can achieve all your daily tasks in an immaculate manner if you’re using a computer,  but solely relying on your mobile device will not prove to be as productive. The technology is still limited, even though you can count on your phone to conduct a video conference, you cannot use it to enter, sort, and share substantial amounts of information just yet. But this will definitely be possible in the future.

If you’re on vacation, running errands or taking a break and you get a work request, you can easily access and share the files on your PC with your client, without the need to go all the way back home or to the office.

3. More affordable AR and VR conferencing

In the past couple of years, we have been able to witness the impressive progress of videoconference tools and technology. However, these tools are not without limitations and the ultimate goal, evidently, is to enhance every aspect that videoconferencing reaches the same level of efficiency as face-to-face communication (if not a higher level).

Cisco’s TelePresence products have made critical contributions to solve some of the issues encountered like the lack of life-sized interactions, but the technology is extremely expensive, thus, inaccessible to remote workers. Though, that is progressively changing, as more companies, such as Microsoft, are experimenting with virtual and augmented reality in order to make it more attainable and affordable. The goal is to be able to see and talk to the person, in their life-size, just as if you were standing next to them.

The State of Remote Work 2019 report³ also focused on some of the main issues remote workers faced, and some of the most prominent ones were “collaborating/and or communication” and “being in a different timezone than teammates”. One of the crucial obstacles in the remote industry is not being able to connect with your colleagues and cooperate on the same level as you would during face-to-face communication. That is an issue that stands to be remedied in the near future.

4. Implementation of AI tools in the management of remote personnel

According to Fundera, employers who offer part-time and flexible remote positions collectively stand to save $44 billion yearly. This goes to show just how invaluable remote tools are, not only in facilitating work experience but also in joining an impressive selection of people with high aptitude from all over the world and not having to worry about the exorbitant cost of bringing each one of them to work on-site.

However, managing remote staff can be very demanding and highly time-consuming, especially when you’re dealing with individuals all around the globe. This entails a lot of preparation, coordination, and effective communication, but sometimes, oversight occurs and it could result in serious downtime, which would tremendously cost the organization in question. In addition to that, the remote staff is not part of conventional management and they don’t get direct feedback in the same way as say someone physically working in the office, which can affect how they prioritize their workload. Enter artificial intelligence or AI. AI represents a brilliant solution in the management of remote personnel, it can especially help in maintaining remote staff’s work in parallel with that of the organization’s, along with their objectives, priorities, and schedules. This has the potential to revolutionize the way the remote staff is managed and keep the remote workers at the same level as their counterparts.
