Even before COVID-19, remote working was fast becoming a popular alternative. Since early 2020, the trend has grown exponentially worldwide.

Remote work is convenient for both employers and employees and it has proven to be very effective. Studies from 2018 on work statistics show that most people feel there are fewer distractions when working away from the office. Interestingly, 74% of respondents in the study said they work remotely to avoid colleague interruptions. Overall office noise is an annoyance to 60% of survey respondents.

  • Maintains full control of when and where scripts are run in the environment.
