Tech Round-Up – 5 Things to Look For in 2021

As far as years go, 2020 has been an unexpected year for everyone!

Entire workforces have had to adapt to new working conditions, using new technologies and having to cut costs where they can.

So, what do we think 2021 will hold, and how can you plan ahead?

More remote working

Whether you love it or hate it, remote working isn’t going anywhere, and with it comes the need for technology.

Video conferencing is going to be the best way to stay productive during the continued disruptions of the pandemic, and we’ve got an article on the options you have for video conferencing.

If you’re looking to continue strong collaboration in 2021, cloud technology allows you to share and update documents in real time, so you can get work done efficiently.

Increased cost control

It’s been a tough year all round, and a by-product of this is that many businesses are attempting to make their money go further.

Particularly with the increased risk of cyber-crime, cutting costs has to be done carefully in order to get the best possible outcome and protection.

Changes to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Charities have taken a huge hit in 2020, with a reduced ability to fundraise for the communities that need it most.

Schools in particular have been affected by a reduced level of assistance, meaning CSR is more important than ever.

Digital transformation

With our increased reliance on technology has come increased digital transformation, and it might seem impossible for businesses to keep up.

We aim to help with regular Articles around digital transformation, business growth, productivity and protection.

These resources are for all types of industries, from Financial Services and Legal to Property and Manufacturing.

New technology

Whilst QR codes are hardly new, they are getting more use than ever due to track and trace technology across sectors!

What began as a ‘Quick Response’ code in a Japanese manufacturing company has become commonplace for everyone as a result of the pandemic.

From hospitality using QR technology for booking and ordering, to businesses implementing QR codes into their track and trace processes – technology is set to be used in new ways to adapt to the changing circumstances.

The UK government is even considering having vaccinated individuals show a QR code to prove their vaccination status to attend sporting and outdoor events.


It’s been a year of uncertainty and rapid change, and 2021 is likely to be full of changes, too.
