Our organization works with local, regional, state and federal leaders to develop more effective uses of information and communications technologies (ICT).  Because our understanding of ICT as infrastructure is unique, we are capable of supporting near term objectives while laying the foundation for more competitive and sustainable communities.

Broadband, collaborative tools and virtual presence technologies are key elements of the information economy. While these resources have facilitated rapid and dramatic changes across the globe, we are challenged to fully use these same resources to re-engineer our local economies.

One area of particular importance is workforce deployment. It is an innovative, groundbreaking approach to the commuting, location, security, and emergency preparedness problems that many companies and government organizations face in major metropolitan areas. Seeking to arrest the crippling nature of congestion in our most vulnerable centers of commerce and population, distributed workplace is a networked, multi-location approach that leverages underutilized communications professionals and technologies to relieve our overtaxed highways and improve air quality by reducing the drive of many daily commuters.

Converged services networks (voice, data and video) and enhanced collaborative and interactive systems permit a greater number of employees to work from office clusters (telesuites”) located closer to their place of residence. These distributed work centers provide a more productive environment for employees of major enterprise employers. By using networked offices to reduce commuting distances for some, the overall reduction in Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) benefits the rest of the highway commuters.

POCKETS is the first full scale departure from the current single location office model and telecommuter scenarios. Its fundamental difference is the movement of the employees’ primary work location to their local community. Existing technologies allow people in dispersed offices to function as if they are in the same building by linking them electronically. This ‘distributed workplace” design has many inherent benefits. The employer gains and retains a more rested, more productive employee; the employee benefits from working in a community “branch” telesuite reducing commute time and expense; Additionally, networked distributed work centers offer better management control, preservation of company identity, and provides employees on-site technical support and training.

Our objective is to establish ‘distributed workplace’ as a framework to extend employers’ access to a broader labor market. Integrated technologies and computer-supported collaboration are key tools for knowledge workers. Multi-location distributed work centers will create a strategic advantage and establish a versatile building block of the networked economy.

Our services include working with local community stakeholders through public-private partnerships. Together, with these partnerships, we analyze, plan, provision and manage these distributed workplace networks to achieve economies of scale and to create a platform for rapid geographic expansion and inclusion of layered value added services such as distance learning and telemedicine.

 

POCKETS is the only organization that is currently proposing a well planned, multi-location, cross government and commercial distributed work solution. It addresses many current and critical issues that face local and regional planners, medium to large size employers, and daily commuters.
