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 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Of course, now this is an outdated and impractical proposition. You and your team are mobile and on demand. You need flexible communication tools for quick teamwork, wherever you may be and on multiple devices.
But how do you create collaboration when you and your staff may be located all over the state or even throughout the country?
It all depends on the tools you use to gather your team members and share information, plan, and innovate.
The Disconnect in Business Communication
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 probably use email or separate web applications that take additional steps to use. This is because all these different ways of accessing information are usually disconnected from each other. Furthermore, the personal devices remote employees rely on may not be connected to the company’s main phone system.
Many businesses lack the communication equipment and connections their teams need to work together effectively. Even with video conferencing, this can cause issues if all employees don’t have access to the same systems and information. Since it doesn’t make sense to fund frequent company meetings, you need another way to encourage employees to work together whenever and wherever they need.
Is your current phone system creating similar limitations for you and your team?
Thankfully, there’s a simple way to solve that problem: Implement a communication system that’s flexible, mobile, and collaborative.
Drive Collaboration with Professional Tools
A Unified Communication System encourages collaboration. Team members can make and receive company calls, access corporate information, setup virtual conferences, instant message, use presence features, and more! 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 capabilities. This results in lost money, lost productivity, and lost opportunities. To top it off, you may be paying more for multiple carriers and disparate systems.
Cloud Communication Systems give you a continuous connection to your partners, co-workers, customers, prospects, and suppliers from almost any location. 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.
