Digital Transformation leveraging Verticalized Workplaces.
Shifting from horizontal to industry-specific solutions
The modern workplace acts as a lynchpin for the enterprise in its pursuit of productivity and employee experience. This paradigm change has forced organizations everywhere to rethink how technology, processes and people can work together to achieve business goals. Most businesses are looking at service providers with future-ready offerings to shape a more cohesive and collaborative enterprise. HCL Fluid Workplace seeks to provide service offerings to drive focused business outcomes for its customers. Our goal of creating digital disruption in order to accelerate workplace transformation has inspired widespread acceptance by industries.
The ‘one size fits all’ model is no longer the best way to lead a customer’s workplace transformation journey. What’s different with workplaces of today are the service needs and requirements for each of them based on the nature of the day-to-day activities. Understanding that the nuances of a workplace across different verticals will vary greatly according to its end users is critical. Based on this, it is important to create workplaces that address the specific needs and demands of its enterprises and employees.

Why is there a demand for crafting specific industry solutions?
The workplace is where the end-user (employee) has the most interactions within their daily life. It’s usually the first and the last thing the end-user sees in their day. This provides custom workplace solutions the opportunity to maximize ROI for enterprises looking to provide the best end-user experience for its employees.
Today, technology is prevalent across all industries. The applications/devices we use, our data identity and workplace ergonomics are all influential factors. The sheer scale of these services is large across enterprises, most of them need to be verticalized to help end-users influence business outcomes.
