The last few years have seen a dramatic increase in the convergence of communications and technologies, consequently expanding the possibilities for technology-enabled collaboration.
In today’s fast-paced environment, companies need their employees to perform smarter and work more productively. Achieving that objective requires collaborative technologies, deeply embedded into business processes, which in turn will encourage collaborative behaviour throughout the business.
Multiple collaboration tools
Employees play a significant role in deciding what technology they want to use. They can now choose from a wide range of tools and technologies, including:
Internet-based collaboration tools can replace face-to-face meetings, allowing staff to work with a team in another office, in another company, or even in another time zone. The larger your business, the more dispersed the workforce is likely to be. Having effective unified communications (UC) in place can reduce the reliance on working out when people are in certain locations, what time zone they are in and then contacting them in the most appropriate way.
UC give your employees greater flexibility in how they work together; the better people work together, the more agile and profitable your business becomes. That’s why it's vital to give your employees effective ways of communicating and collaborating.
We can expect more and more from each new wave of collaborative technologies that evolve. Adding more collaborative tools to UC solutions provides almost limitless potential to improving organisational agility, speeding up decision-making and increasing productivity.
With such a vast array of UC options on the market, it's easy to become overwhelmed as to what is the right option for your business. swcomms can help you understand what the different UC products, tools and solutions can offer, and can guide you to think more strategically about how you can maximise on their capabilities.
