As we move quickly through 2021, many things are changing. Warmer weather is finally making an appearance, COVID-19 vaccinations are continuing to roll-out, and your organization probably has a few new major projects underway. All in all, the future is looking bright.
One change that is rapidly becoming a new normal is the introduction of 5G. Most people have heard of it, although many do not realize how large an undertaking 5G really is for telecommunications companies. It may just seem like devices are getting faster, but behind the scenes is a strong workforce that is working hard to make our lives easier.
While front line workers are out in the field installing new hardware to cell towers and upgrading and replacing existing lines and towers, engineers are also upgrading and tweaking the existing software to maximize the speed and reliability of 5G for everyday use. While this is exciting for most, whenever a new project (especially one of this size) is undertaken, it is not a matter of if problems will arise, rather it is when they will arrive.
Having the ability to speed up and automate daily priorities like filling absences, assigning work, and obtaining job status can really impact your day before you even start thinking about the other “big stuff”. But being ready for both planned and unplanned work is of the utmost importance, and one of the best ways to be prepared is to have already have a system in place for filling shifts and finding the right, available people.
So, what does 5G mean for your organization? Whether your crews are out installing and preparing for 5G, or a home office is helping to manage your workforce, you can expect faster communication, better quality of service, higher internet speeds, and longer reach. Sounds great, right? However, what is the point of having such a robust network if its potential is not fully realized? With 5G comes a whole new world of technology at your fingertips, but if you are using those fingertips to manually manage your workforce, some would consider it a waste. That is where ARCOS can help.
