Build Your Custom Work From Home Kit!

At the start of the pandemic many businesses scrambled to get their staff working from home as quickly as possible without paying too much attention to the conditions of their employees home office environments. With the potential of this going on for much longer than expected, it’s time to take a closer look and make sure your staff have all the tools they need in order to stay efficient, avoid distraction, connect remotely and communicate effectively with your entire team. 

 

Have no fear, the team at Daxtech has put together an a la carte kit of everything you’ll need for a great work from home experience. So let’s jump right into it… Click the links below to browse through the options, then get started building your very own work from home kit. We’ll send you a quote and handle the whole process from start to finish including installation.

 

Note that the options listed are recommendations only and actual items quoted will vary due to availability and customization for your specific needs.

The Right Tools

All-In-One PC

The Lenovo Tiny-In-One PC is a great example of a solution that has everything you need in one small, space saving package. Built in speakers, microphone, camera and more. Consists of two components, a Lenovo Tiny PC that fits into the back of the screen and the screen itself. There’s also a dual screen version!

Security Appliance

Keeping your network safe and secure is paramount when you’re connecting to the office. Having a solid commercial grade router / firewall will help keep cyber threats at bay and maintain a secure connection between your home and the corporate network. 

 

Laser Printer

An essential component for remote work is the ability to print quality documents for presentation to your clients. Whether your meeting at their office or at the local coffee shop, you need to present your information professionally. The HP LaserJet Pro M404 for example is up to the task without taking up too much desk space.

Network Switch

Nowadays almost everything connects to the Internet so you’re going to need a few ports to connect your devices including your computer and printer. This is why we include a quality 5 port network switch.

Desktop Scanner

Most offices are not 100% paperless yet and chances are if you’re working at a law firm or insurance company, you’ll need a way to scan documents and transfer them back to the corporate network. The Fujitsu IX500 is our most common and most reliable desktop scanner. It’s  powerful, fast and saves desk space with it’s small folding design.

 

Wireless Headset

Working remotely typically requires a lot of time on the phone. It’s important to not only have a working phone solution but also a comfortable way to communicate throughout the day. The Sennheiser SD Pro 2 ML for example connects to a standard desk phone as well as to your computer for webinars and video calls. Best of all it’s wireless so you’re free to move about.

 

Sit Stand Desk

Just because you’re working from home doesn’t mean you should let your body suffer from poor ergonomics. A sit / stand desk is the way to go to help stay safe and comfortable. Our kit includes this optional electronic sit stand desk with adjustable height and memory to lock in your perfect position. Available in a variety of colours.

Anti-fatigue Mat

To go a long with your sit stand desk is an essential anti-fatigue mat. Anti-fatigue mat encourages healthy movement to increase comfort. 20 inches by 30 inches gives you plenty of room to move and the anti-slip bottom will ensure you stay safe.

Ergonomic Desk Chair

Keeping the right posture when sitting for long periods of time is crucial. Designed for style and functionality, our recommended chairs have a breathable mesh back and headrest for cooling comfort and adjustable lumbar support to help prevent lower back strain. Height, tilt and arm adjustments let you create the perfect fit for your body.

 

The Right Services

To go along with the essential work from home tools, you need an array of services to keep your network secure, communicate effectively, and work efficiently. No work from home kit is complete without a solid threat protection software. Our kit includes an advanced behavioral analysis software that watches for malicious threats including the zero day ransomware attacks.

If your business is like most, you’re probably using some variation of Microsoft Office. We include Office 365 which has all the productivity software you’ll need including the popular communication solution Microsoft Teams to communicate with staff and facilitate remote meetings with clients.
