Businesses To Use Cloud Computing Guide To Work While at the Olympic Games

Ditch your office space and work while at the Olympic Games is the business advice from a London company which has produced a guide on how to do it.

The remote working specialist Your City Office has released a free everything-you-need-to-know virtual office guide to optimising a smartphone, tablet or laptop to avoid the travel chaos and continue business as usual, while inside the Olympic Stadium.

The guide entitled “How Clever People Work and Watch the Olympics”, advises on technology to ensure a strong WIFI access, includes an Olympic Park map of mobile phone masts for best mobile internet access, and even suggests automated emails that can be sent to ensure a fast response time. There are also strategies and technology to cope with a crowd roaring in the middle of an important phone call.

Mayfair-based virtual office firm, whose motto is “the natural way to work”, has released the guide on its website, and even advises bosses who are “fun-inclined but serious about business” to consider moving their desk and staff to the Olympic Park during the Games.
But Sales Manager Simeon Howard said the idea was not to trick anyone, but to convince bosses they will get better commitment from staff and increased productivity instead of losing hundreds of hours of time, from otherwise bunking workers or commuting chaos.

“Olympic organisers want companies to gear up for remote working to reduce a commuter nightmare on public transport. Take the next logical step further. Why don't you let your staff go to the Games and use the same technology to work and play? It's not rocket science. Remote working is relatively easy, makes business sense, and can help hundreds of thousands of people to do it every day during the Olympics,” Mr Howard said.

Your City Office says a number of companies will use the guide during London 2012.
One is online luxury retail firm Gift Vault. The small company is sending some staff to the Olympic Park while the company moves offices over the Olympic period.

Managing Director Lee Greenberg said: “I was already prepared for upheaval during the Games, and we can run all our orders remotely. This guide had some clever tricks to working a bit more flexibly, so we thought, why not grab the chance, it's only going to happen once. We haven't all got tickets, but some of us will just take in the Games on live screen parks while working,” she said.

Your City Office say you do not need to have tickets for the Games, as the guide advises how to get away from your office space and work while soaking up the Olympic atmosphere at the official spectator Live Sites located in and around the Olympic Park.
