March 22, 2021 9:37 am Published by Comments Off on How is the cloud transforming the way we print?

The cloud infrastructure has been rapidly growing and businesses have been using a cloud-first approach to their digital transformation. In the last quarter in 2018, cloud infrastructure providers saw double-digit growth, and this is a trend growing significantly as we have entered 2021 and the pandemic has sent us into a remote working environment. If a business has an on-premises IT department, often part of their responsibility is to ensure that their departments can print. Transforming their printing environment into the cloud means your IT department can include it into their digital strategy, reducing the burden and cost but increasing the positive customer experience. Let us look at the ways cloud printing supports your digital transformation: Printing in the cloud read more...

I wonder if you ever knew that your managed print solution, printers, and copiers can support your digital transformation. However, you need to know how to gather the right insights from your devices. Most of us never really have any consideration for our printing environment.

However, you really should not underestimate your printers when you are considering how you digitally transform your business as these devices over the last few years have developed to such an extent that they can support your business in so many ways: Customer Experience Digital Workplace Innovation Security Productivity Compliance Sustainability read more...

March 9, 2021 9:31 am Published by Comments Off on How your Managed Print Provider Support your Return to the Office

We have all been hit hard by this pandemic over the last year within our personal and business lives. Hopefully now we have our roadmap back to some normality along with the vaccine and we hope that we can start returning to the office in some way soon. Last year Xerox is a global business survey that estimated that 82% of the workforce would return in just over a year’s time and it appears that the estimate is fairly accurate! Right now, as the kids return to school, we are all contemplating several things regarding our return to the office and one of those elements for consideration, should be “how can our managed Print Solutions be ready to support our read more...

February 12, 2021 9:03 am Published by Comments Off on Mode donates once more to its chosen Charities totalling another £15K.

Mode has a very long history of supporting its Charities Marie Curie, Together for Short Lives and Blue Cross. We are all aware of how challenging this last year has been and never before have charities struggled to access the funds, they so vitally need in order to support the work they do. The pandemic has meant that regular donations are significantly reduced and Therefore, it was with great excitement that we recently contacted our three charities to inform them that were making another donation! Here’s what our charities had to say about this: “This is brilliant news and very much needed. On behalf of everyone at Marie Curie, I would just like to say that this donation and the read more...

How to implement digital transformation for the future of your business now

February 4, 2021 11:42 am Published by Comments Off on How to implement digital transformation for the future of your business now

Digital transformation has had to happen in all areas of business because we were catapulted into a world of mobile working last year. However, whilst businesses were quick to adapt, the digital transformation your business goes through needs to remain at the forefront of your mind, so that you are prepared for the future of how businesses will function. According to Xerox’s global research, businesses in the UK were the most prepared when the pandemic hit, as digital technologies had already begun filling the gaps left by face-to-face interactions. Now, a year on, digitalisation will continue to be vital as businesses aim to evolve their initial work from home policies, to ensure there is a longer-term plan that facilitates the read more...


Pets at Work

Mode’s pets are the real stars!

January 25, 2021 9:15 am Published by Comments Off on Mode’s pets are the real stars!

Well, we have been working from home for some time now and it kind of does feel the norm. However, not being in the office has affected many as they have become isolated-particularly if you live alone and do not have a support bubble. It is widely accepted that pets have always been our best friends and Science Daily recently reported that pets were linked to maintaining better mental health and reducing loneliness. Science Daily shared details on a recent survey conducted by University of York and the university of Lincoln, with over 6,000 participants — found that having a pet was linked to maintaining better mental health and reducing loneliness.

Mode Supports the Start Project and Luton Learning link with Donation of Unused Laptops

January 22, 2021 11:08 am Published by Comments Off on Mode Supports the Start Project and Luton Learning link with Donation of Unused Laptops

If COVID-19 has taught us anything it is that life is unpredictable and as humans, we are capable of great compassion and kindness. The last year has been so difficult for so many people, in so many ways and our young people have been home-schooled, isolated, and often left without the right technology to at least help them try and keep up with their schoolwork. One poll of teachers revealed that 88% had students they believed were falling behind due to lack of access to online learning ** COVID-19 has certainly highlighted the digital divide-those that have- and those that do not. So, when team members of Mode heard about people and companies donating unused but perfectly good laptops to read more...
