Banc Intranets’ BancWorks Solution Facilitates Remote Work, a More Digital Workplace
Banc Intranets announces BancWorks features that can support employees who are working remotely during the coronavirus pandemic. The user-friendly intranet product is ideal for organizations that want to promote a work-from-anywhere strategy and a more digital workplace.
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn., May 21, 2020 – Banc Intranets, a provider of secure, web-based enterprise content management solutions, announces BancWorks® intranet features that can make it easier for employees to work remotely during the coronavirus crisis or under normal conditions.
BancWorks is a user-friendly intranet platform that offers a variety of elements to help employees stay connected, on task and productive while working from home or a remote office environment. For instance, BancWorks can give remote workers convenient and centralized access to their company’s important information. They can securely access their portal and instantly view the latest policies, procedures, rates, product information and other documents. Employees can also browse company news, RSS feeds, blogs and announcements to keep on top of what is happening internally and within their industry.
BancWorks also makes it easy for telecommuting employees to get the information they need to stay on top of their individual duties as well as team projects. They can use an electronic organizational chart and employee profiles, for example, to connect with the most appropriate people and internal resources that can support their activities. The human resource department, for example, can use BancWorks learning management module to keep personnel on task with training requirements, including classes, evaluations and documentation of their progress. And with the kudos employee recognition tool, managers can publicly acknowledge workers for the contributions they make working from home.
In addition, BancWorks includes productivity-enhancing options that can help telecommuters operate more effectively. As a prime example, managers can use announcements, blogs and FAQs to quickly disseminate information across the entire organization. Integration with Office Outlook calendars can help teleworkers effectively stay on top of important events while the ticket system can enhance productivity by keeping work flowing smoothly. Employees can also use BancWorks’ internal links to go directly to information and search tool to find information quickly and easily anywhere on their intranet site. This can allow them to spend less time hunting for information and more time working on higher-value tasks.
The flexible, robust features of BancWorks have been especially beneficial for organizations during the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced more employees to work from home. But the intranet platform is also a viable solution for staff who may be working in the field, while traveling or off site for other reasons. Regardless of the work environment, BancWorks is a valuable work-from-anywhere resource that offers convenient access to company information, simplifies processes and improves workflow for employees.
“At Banc Intranets, we pride ourselves on providing organizations with leading-edge technology that facilitates content management while streamlining internal processes,” said Mark Anderson, CEO of Banc Intranets. “We are excited to highlight BancWorks as an invaluable resource for employees whether they are working in the office, at home, on the go or anywhere else.”
From a trend-related standpoint, BancWorks is helping to fill an expanding need in the marketplace. Because of social distancing measures designed to slow the spread of COVID-19, millions of Americans have been working from home. But studies indicate telecommuting was steadily increasing—mainly due to technological advancements, cost savings, and the appeal of flexible work arrangements—before the coronavirus outbreak. According to the Census Bureau's 2018 American Community Survey, 4.7 million Americans regularly work from home, up 173 percent since 2005. Forty percent more U.S. companies offered remote work as an option in 2018 than they did five years ago, reports research-based consulting firm Global Workplace Analytics. And experts expect the remote work trend to continue long after the coronavirus crisis ends.
In addition, research shows that remote work and intranet technology like BancWorks are part of the acceleration of the digital workplace. Organizations are increasingly establishing a formal digital workplace strategy, according to the 2019 State of the Digital Workplace report by CMSWire and Digital Workplace Group. The number of entities with a formalized digital workplace program grew from 46 percent in 2017 to 65 percent in 2019. Their top five digital workplace priorities are digitization and process improvement (45.5 percent), knowledge management (37.1 percent), culture and change (34.9 percent), improving customer service (28.4 percent), and learning and development (28.4 percent).
BancWorks is an innovative intranet solution that makes it easier for companies to organize, centralize and manage their information. It creates a single place where employees can access policies, procedures, the latest news, and other important information. And because BancWorks has responsive design, it automatically adjusts content to fit all screen sizes, which means employees—whether working on site or remotely—can use any type of device to access the information. BancWorks is ideal for financial institutions, health care facilities, nonprofits and other organizations that want to enhance their operations.
