Collaboration tools – bringing people together
The more people collaborate, the more productive they are. Most workers tend to produce more – and at higher quality – if they can exchange ideas, interact, and collaborate on common work product. Workers with diverse skills come together to work on a task – and given the right conditions, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. One necessary condition is that team members can trust and count on one another. A second necessary condition for successful collaboration is that team members have access to tools that allow them to communicate easily and quickly.
The fundamental value proposition of collaboration technologies is to enable workers to work from anywhere, on any device. But with an increasing number of companies hiring remote workers or working with third parties, videoconferencing has become a necessary tool.
