Empower Employee Collaboration With Cloud Communications
Remember the days when the only way you could empower your team to collaborate was in face-to-face meetings that required time and travel that were planned far in advance? That brings up not-so-fond memories of securing landlines, delayed flights, flip charts, windowless meeting rooms and maybe even slide projectors!
Of course, in today’s business world, this is an outdated and impractical proposition. You and your team are mobile, on demand. Most companies today need flexible business communication tools that enable quick teamwork to solve business problems, wherever a worker may be, on multiple devices.
But how do you create collaboration when you and your staff may be located all over the state, or even the country?
Communication Tools That Drive Collaboration
It all depends on the tools you are using to gather team members together to share information, plan and innovate.
Many businesses lack the communication equipment their teams need to work together effectively.
Today, your employees access information from their desks, laptops, cell phones and a variety of other devices, wherever they may be. To share that information they use email or separate web applications that require additional steps to use. Even with web conferencing, the personal cell phones that remote employees rely on may not be connected to the company’s main phone system to join a conversation.
Thankfully, there’s a relatively simple way to solve that problem: Implementing a company-owned communication system that’s flexible, mobile, and collaborative.
Enable Mobile Employees With Functional And Professional Tools
A unified communication system encourages collaboration. Team members can make and receive company calls, access corporate voicemail, setup virtual conferences and instant message from a basic Internet connection.
It’s one click to start a meeting or share a document. No more separate emails, links and phone numbers. It just happens in the flow of the conversation.
Traditional phone systems, on the other hand, often hinder collaboration because of their limited mobile capability. This results in lost money, lost productivity and lost opportunities. To top it off, you may be paying more in the form of multiple carriers and disparate systems.
Cloud communication systems give you a continuous connection to your partners, co-workers, customers and suppliers from almost any location your employees are working. Your teams can collaborate as easily from the road as they can from the office.
Forget about fragmented conference calls and impersonal emails. In today’s business environment, it just makes sense to bring teams together using cloud technology.
