As an environmental and cultural heritage consulting firm, Niche Environment and Heritage relies on a large and varied staff, ranging from ecologists to archaeologists, to serve client needs. Their experts work in New South Wales and beyond, and spend around 50% or more of their time in the field. With their mostly remote workforce, a traditional office just didn’t make sense. The company turned to OBT for a mobile solution.

 

OBT set Niche up with a cloud-based solution that empowered their remote workforce to be more productive wherever they were, providing them with:

 

Remote accessibility

DaaS (Desktop-as-a-Service) is a hosted desktop solution that stores applications, documents, and data in the cloud. By implementing this mobile solution, OBT enabled staff to access files from anywhere. For a small monthly fee, consultants were able to manage their files using Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access from home, a client’s office, or the field itself.

Real-time collaboration

OBT also facilitated face-to-face communication through a hosted collaboration solution. Colleagues were able to meet, share information, and work on files through real-time audio and video. This reduced file version inconsistency and disorganization.

 

Reduced costs

Because staff performed tasks in their own homes and spaces, real estate expenses were kept low. The company also saved on the high costs of hardware and complex computer systems by letting employees work from any connected device.
