As project timelines have shortened and the need for collaboration has increased, more CAD professionals are leaving their offices to work with others at different locations.
There’s No Place Like Home
More and more CAD professionals want and need to work from home. Some are increasing productivity by using their work-from-home capability to make it home for dinner with their families, allowing them to resume work later in the evening. States like California are supporting telecommuting to ease road congestion and pollution. The ability to use the same system at home and in the office is also a major benefit to both the worker and the company in the new world of BYOD. It minimizes the need for the employee to transfer files to a home workstation to continue work. Unlike a traditional white-collar worker who can telecommute with a lower-cost home PC, CAD professionals require robust systems like the ThinkPad® W540 to work from home.
