Let's talk about AKRF. This is a leading environmental, planning and engineering consulting firm with five offices across the eastern seaboard. You may have heard of them; they've worked on several high profile projects such as the USTA National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows, Yankee Stadium, Mt. Sinai Hospital, and many more.
The nature of the work at AKRF requires data-intensive CAD, GIS, and Office documents. This means that AKRF employees had to be in the office to use the software, or request a laptop that was pre-configured with the proper software. The time required and difficulties involved in working remotely caused most employees to simply work late at the office rather than attempt to work from the field.
