HOW DAISY HELPS
Our solutions help you boost employee wellbeing in countless ways. By enabling flexibility and balance in the way people work, increasing connectedness between teammates in different locations, streamlining collaboration and simplifying labour-intensive processes, colleagues can focus on more rewarding work.
Our managed services (security, business resilience, infrastructure management and more) take the pressure off your in-house IT resource, freeing them up for more value-added work while embedding better work practices and increasing colleagues’ sense of safety.
Finally, our technology training services maximise your people’s ability to get the most from the unified communications (UC) apps and systems they use, simplifying key tasks and increasing their knowledge and productivity.
A wellbeing perspective
1. UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS
Fostering closeness, creativity and flow
Hybrid working is now the norm for many businesses. When it works well, this fusion of in-office and remote work offers major wellbeing benefits while increasing employees’ freedom, flexibility and productivity. Show more...
Having the right unified communications (UC) solution will be key to achieving this and can help you avoid the pitfalls of poor hybrid implementation while enhancing collaboration and team cohesion.
Working with top vendors like Microsoft, Mitel and Gamma, Daisy can help you design, launch and embed your own dynamic, tailored combination of voice calling, instant messaging, content sharing and face-to-face video meetings, empowering your people to connect, collaborate and delight your customers. We can even help you expand Microsoft Teams into a full UC solution, adding external voice calling with Daisy Direct2 Teams.
Daisy’s technology training provides highly-professional, cost-effective training and education services that enable your business to get the most out of your UC apps and systems. With courses aimed at all users across your business – covering every requirement from general user introductions and advanced courses to short courses with specific skills, features and applications. Our learning programmes are designed to educate, inspire, and motivate your employees.
2. Cloud-delivered IT
For a smoother, more productive work day
As well as offering your business a flexible, scalable and cost-effective infrastructure option, cloud technology allows your people to access transformative productivity apps that support them in all aspects of their job, fostering feelings of effectiveness while making day-to-day work more rewarding. Show more...
We can help you harness the full power of Microsoft 365 in the way that works for your employees, allowing them to get the very most from this powerful integration of apps, cloud services, collaboration, mobility and advanced security, instantly updated as new features are released. Our cost-effective training courses enable teams to exploit the full potential of the apps at their disposal, maximising the return on your Microsoft investment.
Using Microsoft Azure, Daisy can also design a bespoke, fully-managed cloud solution to build and run multiple aspects of your IT estate, taking vital pressure off your in-house IT Team.
3. Mobility and Mobile Device Management
Freedom, flexibility and safety for your people
With Mobile-as-a-Service (MaaS) from Daisy, your people have the devices and connectivity they need to work from anywhere, reduce travel time and collaborate in complete security, while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Innovative products like GigaCube enable homeworkers to access WiFi without using their home broadband service, while automated administration helps your technical staff streamline the management of a large mobile estate.
4. Connectivity and infrastructure
For speed, simplicity and availability
Want another way to minimise unnecessary stress on your team? Ensure the apps and systems they rely on are always available and quick to function, whenever and wherever they’re needed. As hybrid working becomes the norm, the demands on modern networks increase, along with the number of connection points and user issues. This places more of a burden on already stretched IT teams – especially if they themselves are working remotely. Show more...
With a managed software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) from Daisy, even the most complex and fast-moving of businesses can offer staff a seamless remote working environment without monopolising your IT resource. As a long-standing Cisco Gold Partner, we can handle all aspects of procurement, implementation and ongoing maintenance, maximising the agility of your networks and your employees’ ability to thrive in their roles.
5. Modern Workplace and 24/7 End User Service Desk
Giving your people the tools and support to thrive
Let Daisy take the day-to-day headache out of supplying, managing and responsibly recycling the devices and hardware your people require. Not only does this ensure staff always have fit-for-purpose, reliable equipment that gets the best from all your applications, but it also takes away a classic source of stress from your IT team. Our Lifecycle Management service covers device set-up plus support in accommodating legacy applications, to minimise or eliminate downtime. Show more...
Meanwhile, our 24/7 End User Service Desk takes care of another key requirement that’s notorious for monopolising IT resource, giving you and your people complete peace of mind that technology issues will be sorted promptly, according to cast-iron SLAs. This can help to keep your staff engaged and empowered to succeed, whenever and wherever they are working and helps to improve job satisfaction for your IT teams.
6. Operational Resilience – planning and management
Maximum resilience for your business, minimal burden on your team
Making sure your people feel safe and looked after is central to their wellbeing. Feeling safe in the workplace takes multiple forms, from knowing there’s a plan in place if a disaster strikes to feeling fully confident in one’s knowledge of data security procedures. Show more...
Your Daisy team can address these needs with a range of managed solutions: for example, by supplying your business with a virtual chief information security officer, through to managed vulnerability scanning, and by increasing the effectiveness of your business continuity plans with Shadow-Planner. We also offer tailored training to explain and embed security best-practice.
