All around the world, companies have been forced to make the transition to remote working policies, which has changed the trajectory of their operations. In fact, a Gartner survey found that 74% of CFOs will move at least 5% of their workforce to permanent remote positions.
None of this could have been accomplished without the use of modern technologies that enable collaboration and communication from the comfort of a worker’s home.
Now, AI tools are poised to undergo massive digital transformation as they are constantly being tested and improved.
AI has the ability to help employees enhance their own experience, while also helping them have contact with IT help desks and HR systems to intertwine various teams.
Other tools such as time-tracking tools or SaaS platforms also can help a distributed workforce operate seamlessly as coworkers working in two different time zones can remain on the same page of a project.
Applications such as Zoom, Teams and Slack have already skyrocketed in popularity over the past few months, and CEO of software company Myplanet Jason Cottrell said that this increase in data collection can help improve these existing resources.
“AI needs data to run well and if you look at things like video conferencing, the volume of data has increased exponentially so it’s perfect for machine learning models to adapt user experience if it’s architected well,” said Cottrell.
