Key Findings1 Many of the ways that workplaces have transformed in response to the pandemic are here to stay. It’s fair tosay that the office as we knew it is gone2 Workers are in a groove with working from home now and feel it’s a net positive situation compared totheir previous traditional office routine.3 Part of what’s making this work is the wide adoption of collaboration software, something nearly allcompanies have adopted. Zoom is the most used, followed by Microsoft (Teams, Office 365) and Google(Meet, Docs).4 One piece of tech that’s being used more is the smartphone, with the majority using their phone for workpurposes. It’s being used most frequently as a way to communicate within their teams, likely due to theincrease in collaboration tool usage5 There is significant interest in DaaS, more so in Medium and Large companies, who see its top benefitsas freeing up time for more strategic projects and keeping hardware up to date5
