It’s no secret that mobile technology is one of the biggest trends of the 21st century. With the advent of mobile computers, phones, tablets and wearables, we’re now able to remain connected and share information from almost anywhere.
This increased mobility and flexibility is also helping create a more mobile workforce. We’re no longer confined to working from our desks from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Now we can work at home, on the weekends and during our commutes. As a result, more companies are looking to implement new infrastructure and policies to help facilitate the mobile workforce, and innovative new convertible devices are helping companies provide versatile working capabilities to their employees.
Recently, German Television Broadcaster RTL II Fernsehen GmbH & Co. KG switched from using traditional workstations to Lenovo’s ThinkPad Helix to provide employees a unique and adaptable solution. The thin, light Helix is a two-in-one device that provides employees with both a powerful, business-grade computer and a portable, fully functional tablet. Employees can seamlessly transition between working on their laptop to working on a tablet by simply detaching the screen of the Helix when going into a meeting or presentation. Employees can also enjoy increased flexibility when working with their colleagues; they can twist or flip their screens to easily share information and collaborate on projects.
RTL II’s decision to integrate the ThinkPad Helix into its workplace exemplifies an innovative solution that addresses the versatility needs of today’s workforce. Given the positive feedback from employees, RTL II has replaced almost every single workstation at its headquarters with the convertible, allowing the team to work with maximum flexibility.
