With lockdowns and social distancing restrictions ending, more workers are returning to the office. Safety measures are still a top priority, and many companies are strategizing on how to restructure their workspace for the better at this crucial juncture.

One update that should be apparent to many businesses is your computer equipment.

A large proportion of companies learned the hard way during the pandemic that device strategies really matter. Going into the pandemic and lockdowns, most were using archaic methods of procuring IT hardware AKA buying desktop computers outright.

This equipment was inflexible and a deadweight during lockdowns where staff had to work from home. Owing to buying the devices outright, many companies were reluctant to replace them with laptops. This led many to realise just how costly and old fashioned it was to buy devices outright.

Leasing IT Hardware is the Future of Flexible Working

With social distancing ending but the virus still in circulation, most businesses realise that now is an excellent time to refresh their office computer hardware and develop a more adaptable device strategy. The colder season could bring more unpredictable turns of events with the virus.

When looking at a complete equipment refresh, some might even consider switching devices completely. If you’ve ever considered transitioning to an Apple office before, there has never been a better time and it isn’t only due to the pandemic.

With the launch of the Apple M1 chips and new macOS system Monterey launching next season, Apple can bring a big wave of advantages to your business.
