Office Workers Feeling the Heat to "Hurry-Up", TrackVia Survey Shows

DENVER --(Business Wire)--

As America's businesses look to do more with less, workers are feeling the pressure. A whopping 84 percent of non-executive office workers reported feeling pressure "at least occasionally" to do their work faster. This is according to a new survey sponsored by TrackVia, providers of an online platform that gives non-technical business people a radically faster way to build and use their own software to do their work.

The need for speed appears universal amongst surveyed workers. Most rated the speed at which they work as "important," according to the survey. Forty-seven percent of respondents said speed was "very important" when it came to getting their work done. Another 45 percent said it was "somewhat important".

The overall pace of work also appears to be increasing. When compared to twelve months ago, 39 percent of workers reported getting their work done faster. Fifty-five percent reported getting their work done at about the same pace. Only five percent reported getting their work done slower.

"I think it's safe to say that the days of taking your time to do the job right is being replaced by 'do your job right - but do it as fast as possible,'" said Charles Var, vice president of marketing at TrackVia. "This hurry-up workplace is simply a new fact of life for many workers and a big reason we've developed TrackVia to help give workers a solution that allows them to solve their business challenges right now - not tomorrow, next week or next month."


When it comes to getting work done faster, simple organization and experience count most. Twenty-six percent of respondents said "keeping organized" was most important for getting their work done fast. The "amount of experience" was selected second most often at 21 percent. Eight percent of respondents cited "having software that is reliable/ dependable" and another seven percent selected "having the right type of software needed for my work".

When it comes to speed and workplace technology, IT can play a big role. However, survey respondents gave mixed reviews of their companies' IT departments or outside IT technical support, with nearly half experiencing speed of response they felt was just "OK" or slow or "very slow".

The study was administered by Amplitude Research during October 2012 among a nationwide panel of workers. In total, 300 surveys were completed by non-C-level, non-IT workers throughout the United States who use computers and software as part of their daily job. The survey has a maximum sampling margin of error of +/- 5.7 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
