Digital Workplace

The digital workplace calls for an integrated approach

The digital workplace offers substantially more freedom and fulfilment for employees: they are less restricted in terms of when and where they work and are no longer tied to permanently installed devices such as desktop workstations. Instead, they always have access to the latest technology, which is tailored to their individual needs. CHG-MERIDIAN shows you how this can work.

Increased productivity with the Digital Workplace

The assets themselves are just one of many building blocks in the process of digital transformation. For the digital workplace to maximise productivity, employees must want to use the technology and be trained in how to do so. And, of course, they need to be able to access the applications quickly and securely.

Primarily however, the digital workplace needs to be approached holistically as a 360° lifecycle concept that integrates all the individuals, departments, and processes that are key to its successful implementation.

Learn more about our 360° lifecycle model and the services we offer:

A non-captive concept

In concrete terms, this means that our end-to-end solution ticks all the boxes on both the technological and the financial front. As experienced technology managers, we are able to create a compelling business case for a customised business concept. Instead of being captive to one supplier and thus tying themselves to particular devices and pricing models, our customers enjoy maximum freedom thanks to our independence from banks and manufacturers.

"What makes us different, is we look at the organisational, commercial, technological, and human perspective. The digital workplace will succeed if all areas are taken into account and processes and solutions are aligned to what employees and companies really need. Let us take you on this journey.”
Todd Fortescue, Vice president of Sales, CHG-MERIDIAN APAC
