New Updates to Citrix Workspace Now Available

Technology has made our personal lives easier than ever. But it’s complicating things in the office. On any given day, the average employee spends nearly 65 percent of their time on busy work and in meetings, 20 percent searching for information and just 15 percent doing what they want and are paid to do. Why? Because technology that was supposed to streamline work has only made it more complex. Citrix Systems, Inc. is out to change this. The company today announced general availability of new features within Citrix® Workspace™ including an intelligent feed and personalized workflows designed to simplify work by eliminating digital noise and automating meaningless tasks so that employees can focus on their core jobs and be their best.

Quieting the Noise

In the course of a typical day, employees:

  • Use more than a dozen apps to get work done – often four or more just to complete a single business process like submitting expenses, booking travel, submitting purchase orders or approving time off.
  • Spend at least 20 percent of  their time searching for information they need to do their jobs
  • Are interrupted by a text, chat, or other alert 1,110 times a day, or about every two minutes.

Enabling the Future of Work Today

But this is about to change. By 2021, IDC Predicts that 60 percent of Global 2000 companies will have adopted a future-workspace model —a flexible, intelligent, collaborative virtual/physical work environment —to improve employee experience and productivity, with 10 percent adopting workspace as a service. And Citrix will be at the forefront of this transformation. (IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Future of Work 2019 Predictions, Doc # EMEA44255218, October 2018)

Personalizing Work

Using Citrix Workspace, companies can optimize the work day for every employee by organizing, guiding and automating work in an intelligent and personal way that enables them to focus on doing what they do best – and do it best.

Unbundling Monolithic Apps

Infused with innovative technologies such as machine learning and micro applications, Citrix Workspace enables organizations to create a single, unified and experience that is intelligent and secure across apps and data. Leveraging out of the box integrations to the world’s most commonly used applications, including SAP (Ariba, Concur and SuccessFactors); Microsoft (Dynamics, Power BI and Teams); Google G-Suite (Drive, Calendar and Directory); Salesforce; Workday; Atlassian (Jira); Zendesk and ServiceNow; more than 100 pre-configured microapps and the new intelligent features, companies can:

  • Automate repetitive, valueless tasks.
  • Extract the most pertinent tasks and insights from systems of record and deliver them in intelligent feeds to individual users on any device or channel.
  • Create single-purpose steps to simplify the execution of mundane tasks such as filing expenses, requesting time off and submitting purchase orders, among other things.
  • Build personal workflows around individual employees with context and smarts so they can spend less time on menial tasks and focus on meaningful work.

In addition, companies can also connect through Citrix Workspace to legacy, homegrown systems and create engaging micro applications and micro automation using low-code tooling.

Using Citrix Workspace, companies can remove the complexity from work and create a highly personalized experience that enables employees to be their most productive and use the special skills they were hired for to create value.
