Hoboken, New Jersey - (Vocus) October 25, 2012 –“How to Set Up a Virtual Office” will be the topic Carl Mazzanti, chief executive officer, eMazzanti Technologies will be addressing in a live interview with Jim Blue of BlogTalkRadio/Keeping Technology Simple on November 1, 2012.
“My mission,” says Blue, “is to help people who are on the wrong side of the Great Digital Divide understand how technology has changed their lives and why becoming mobile will help them compete with a younger generation that has grown up in the Age of Technology.”
“I’m also speaking to the NY XPO on a similar topic,” said Mazzanti. “My objective is to open the eyes of small business owners in terms of making their businesses more productive. The virtual, cloud-based office means full work capabilities anywhere they want, anytime they want.”
Five Key Questions for Would-Be Virtual Office Users
In the interview, Mazzanti will be asked to elaborate on five key questions:
1. How has mobility evolved?
Office workers used to be bound to their desktop PC, but today’s mobile workforce needs immediate access to network data, systems, and processes through mobile devices or productivity will suffer. Fortunately, powerful mobile devices, high-speed wireless networks and cloud-based computing solutions have unleashed information workers and taken information work well beyond the four walls of traditional business. Any size business can now create a virtual office that includes: phone, email, meetings, document sharing, data security and virtualization—allowing a single server to support multiple applications.
2. What does someone need to know to work out of hotel and work at their weekend place?
Easy Internet access to all home-office documents, calendars, email and contacts is now possible via cloud computing. Most importantly, this access is secure and reliable. Instant meetings can also called to link people from multiple locations. Today’s mobile or virtual office can be identical to the brick and mortar office.
3. Everyone is thinking mobile these days. Go on vacation, travel aboard and get their work done?
The reason someone is away from the office becomes a moot point as the virtual office can provide full functionality to anyone on the go.
4. What is the “laptop Lifestyle” all about?
The laptop lifestyle is really about mobile, cloud computing on any device, any time—smart phone, tablet, pad or laptop. Cloud computing is now delivering the full office experience outside the office.
5. What do listeners need to think about when selecting a professional to help them move in this direction?
eMazzanti has an excellent article entitled: “How to Select an IT Provider-25 questions that will help you zero-in on a top notch-IT provider.” For example:
- Are they available 24×7?
- Does your IT provider have a target or guaranteed response time?
- Do they offer cost-control guarantees that include “all-you-can-eat” IT support for a fixed, monthly fee?
- Are they recognized in the industry as top-level IT professionals?

In summary, a company’s management and staff can now seamlessly and securely access data, with a consistent experience, across PC, phone, or browser. Productivity tasks like opening a document on a mobile device, collaborating with team members, or checking a calendar is a seamless extension of the tools workers already know and trust. Back-end processes like security and identity management is also extended from the core network platform to the mobile workforce without requiring an entirely new infrastructure.
