Companies lacking cloud-based infrastructures were forced to quickly put a plan of action into place.

Most people can agree that technology has a role to play when it comes increasing production and efficiency in almost any field, and marketing and creative production are no exception. While tech is the backbone of any marketing or creative production ecosystem, the constant change in the development of new technologies coupled with customer expectations in an ever expanding marketing landscape are evolving at a pace that is leaving many reeling to catch up. To stay relevant and build for the future, many organizations are rethinking how they use technology, people and processes to fundamentally enhance marketing performance to meet customer expectations. This requires strategic thought and there are five critical steps to pay close attention to when planning to introduce new technology.
IO Integration is excited to announce our new Creative Operations cloud hosting platform, IO Space™. Current global events have changed the way we work, and how we work will never be the same. Companies prioritizing the expansion of remote workforce capabilities in recent years were better prepared when the stay-at-home orders were put in place, but for many others this process had to be expedited. Several organizations with on-prem technology are still finding it difficult to support and expand the capabilities of their remote workforce. The particular challenge for marketing and creative departments is being able to quickly access marketing assets, maintain creative production workflows, and keep remote teams working efficiently. Moving Creative Operations to the cloud can alleviate many of these issues and it's no longer a question of if, but when to make the move. Based on the next generation Cloud 2.0 platform, IO Space consists of a host of products and services specifically designed for Creative Operations and marketing production teams. Our products and bundles are maintained, supported, and managed by IO Integration Creative Operations technology experts who understand the way your teams work. With data centers around the globe, IO Space offers a reliable, cost-effective, and scalable infrastructure for any organization looking to move creative production or data backup to the cloud.
At IO Integration, our sole focus is bringing the best possible experience to our customers. This past month we gathered all of our employees from around the globe to meet for our bi-annual company meeting in St. Simons Island, Georgia. This is the one time that we gather to discuss ways to improve our overall business and deliver to our customers the best possible experience when partnering with IOI. This provides us a unique opportunity to analyze our service offerings and to ensure we are bringing the most value to our clients.
