Employees Don't Get Access to Latest Tech Devices at Work

Even though technology continues to advance, it will only make an impact if it is able to get in the hands of consumers. Although you might have every new device the second it comes out at home, the same cannot be said for the workplace.

According to a new survey completed by Eccentex Corporation, a provider of platform-as-a-service (PaaS) applications for Dynamic Case Management (DCM (News - Alert)), a majority of the “modern” workers employed today are unable to do their jobs effectively because they lack the necessary tools needed.

The survey, which polled over 200 people, included executives, IT/technicians, and knowledge workers who all agreed that workers are demanding an increase in technology support, mobile capabilities, cloud access, and PaaS technologies but are not getting it from their employers.

“At Eccentex, we are striving to deliver a customizable cloud-based platform that empowers the modern worker,” said Glen Schrank, CEO at Eccentex Corporation. “We want workers to be satisfied with the tools they are using, which enable tasks to be executed quickly, efficiently, and effectively. Modern technology in the workplace not only increases productivity, but keeps companies competitive in their respected industry as well.”

According to the survey, 73 percent of companies are using cloud applications, but less than half (36 percent) feel that the cloud service being offered is actually secure. In addition, 84 percent of those surveyed work remotely, but a majority (70 percent) said they do not have the proper tools to work from home.

Not surprisingly, employees have asked if they could bring their own devices into work to help them complete tasks on a daily basis. Although a majority of offices due allow them to there is still a decent amount of people, 16 percent, which are not allowed to bring them in.

Although the technology market has made strides in what it has created and released to the masses over the past decade, many people are still not being given access to this technology that could potentially increase productivity and overall revenue for a company.
