(Editor’s Note: Today’s post is brought to you by our friends at Kronos, the global leader in delivering workforce management solutions in the cloud. Kronos recently brought together five fellow Greater Boston technology companies to compete in the inaugural Summer Games: Battle of the Interns. The event offers organizations and their interns an opportunity for some networking, celebration and good old fashioned competition. Enjoy the post!)
From delayed flights to knee defenders, modern air travel isn’t fun. But one thing I do enjoy is having WiFi on planes. I can watch a movie, listen to music or play a game. And I don’t have to watch or listen to whatever the airline chooses for me. I can keep myself entertained for the flight.
I can also use the quiet time to work. Flights are a great time to catch up on my reading. Our friends at Kronos understand the importance of having access to the things that are important. Today’s Time Well Spent focuses on the value of having workforce data when we need it.
Cloud-based solutions give us the information we want at the moment we need it – maybe call it a productivity cloud. And they do it cost-effectively. While it’s not ideal to bring work with you on a family trip, I have to think that taking a couple of moments on your phone or tablet to make sure the office is OK is infinitely better than bringing a pile of paperwork. The cloud allows us to be productive from anywhere. Even at 37,000 feet.1
