Collaboration is no longer confined to the boardroom. It’s where we are. However, many generations still rely on first generation collaboration tools, like email or conference calls, and miss out on the better productivity features of newer solutions. Video collaboration is one of the best ways to save time and money while preserving the ‘human’ element necessary for clear, concise communication. Mobile-based collaboration also allows traveling employees to connect seamlessly using voice, video and instant messaging from anywhere. Use the right tools to plan your team’s schedule, and provide ample wiggle room for flexible hours, especially when dealing with multiple time zones. This way everyone gets to make the most of their workday.
It’s no longer just big corporations doing multinational business; even small businesses and start-ups collaborate from every corner of the world. With the right planning in place, and through the use of effective collaboration solutions, businesses of all sizes can leverage a widely dispersed workforce to create and support a global business network.
