Setting Up the Perfect Home Office to Maximize Comfort and Productivity
A day in the life of a regular employee today has become completely different. Remote work is the new reality for people, which may last for a longer term. According to 451 Research, up to 40% of organizations will shift to a more robust work from home environment permanently.
While many employees have probably set up their workstations at home quickly, they might not have taken the time to look into the right technology and tools to be able to work comfortably and productively. Especially for employees with newly-installed home office, there will definitely be adjustments and modifications to be made.
If you’re looking for recommendations on the ideal home office setup, these Dell devices may become your favorites.
Your PC is Your New Companion, so Pick the Right One
The most ideal PC for a professional should be both versatile and secure to be able to handle various workloads. In a work-from-home set-up, the PC should enable users to work from anywhere in their humble abode. It should offer fast and simple connections, powerful performance and smarter devices ranging from ultra-premium to more budget friendly options.
Dell’s Latitude 9510 is the smallest, lightest, most intelligent 15-inch business PC. It offers enhanced collaboration features with premium built-in speakerphone and intelligent audio solutions that cancel background noise, up to 34 hours of battery life for anyone who jumps from room to room throughout the day and 5G-ready design to boost connectivity options. For those that prefer a smaller laptop, the Latitude 7410 features Dell’s first 4K, low blue light panel on a premium business PC to help enhance eye comfort – something that could benefit users that work longer or later hours at home.
Workers who prefer desktops or have minimal space can choose the OptiPlex 7070 Ultra. It is a zero-footprint desktop solution, with the PC module hidden in the stand. Creators, engineers, and data scientists that require exceptional graphics and compute power may find the Precision 5000 and 7000 mobile workstations as their perfect companion.
All of these devices include Dell Optimizer, a new AI-based optimization technology that learns how each person works and adapts to their behavior to improve overall application performance, while also advancing Dell’s commitment to sustainability.
Freelancers and entrepreneurs can also find great Dell devices fit for their workloads. The latest XPS 15 and XPS 17 provide bigger screens in smaller footprints. They are designed to help unleash creativity with powerful performance features and immersive visuals on stunning 4-sided InfinityEdge displays.
For small business owners looking for an affordable, performance-driven laptop, the new Vostro 7500 is equipped with a powerful NVIDIA® graphics card, passes the military-grade durability test (MIL STD 810G) and features a spill-resistant keyboard that can power through morning coffee and lunch meetings.
Conference Effectively with an Integrated Adapter Speakerphone
The remote workforce is spending more time than ever in virtual meetings, but it’s not always comfortable to wear a headset for prolonged hours. Dell’s Mobile Adapter Speakerphone (MH3021P), the world’s first multi-port adapter with integrated speakerphone, provides convenient conferencing experiences in a sleek, compact and innovative design.
It has intuitive controls that make it easy to navigate call functions. The speakerphone’s omni-directional microphone can pick up voice from all directions, while its echo cancellation and noise reduction features eliminate background noise distractions. It can connect to a display that supports up to 4K resolution with HDR, transfer large media files in seconds and charge laptop—all at once and while in a call. It is designed to be plug-and-play (no software downloads needed) and is optimized for platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams and many more.
Maximize Productivity and Comfort with the Perfect Monitor
According to Forrester Research, 92% of workers believe ergonomically optimized monitors are critically important for improving their productivity and comfort as they shift to remote work more permanently.
As the world’s leader in PC monitors for seven years running, Dell has delivered the best monitors across its portfolio – from its premium UltraSharp line to every day affordable monitors like the P and E series – giving users the most ergonomic and productive workspace at home.
The Dell UltraSharp 27 4K USB-C Monitor (U2720Q) is the best pick for users seeking 4K UHD resolution. VESA DisplayHDR™ 400 and wide color space coverage makes it ideal for workers and designers who value accurate color with striking clarity.
Meanwhile, the Dell 24 Video Conferencing Monitor (P2418Hz) is the ideal monitor for videoconferencing. It has a built-in 2MP Full HD infrared camera supporting Windows Hello, noise-canceling microphone and two 5W integrated speakers, so that users can fully engage and collaborate with their colleagues in all their virtual meetings.
Pick the Perfect PC Accessories
To further enhance connectivity, opt for accessories with multiple compatibility features that can scale up and augment the capacity of the workstation. The world’s most powerful charging docks – WD19, WD19TB, WD19DC can charge PCs up to 80% in an hour with ExpressChargeTM . These future-proof, upgradable designs allow users to customize their workspace with monitors and other accessories like keyboard, mouse, headset/speakerphone and webcam.
The Dell Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo (KM7120W) conveniently allows up to three-device connectivity so users can switch easily between laptop, desktop or 2-in-1. The slim, compact keyboard provides a neat and clutter-free workspace while providing up to 36 months of battery life.
While these devices can help create the perfect home office, remote work is about more than just technology. It’s also about staying positive, taking care of one’s health and well-being, balancing home life while being engaged with colleagues and keeping everyone productive.
