If your organization still relies on emails for collaboration, it’s time to make a switch. Make sure which type of tool will serve you the best
Planning to rely just on chat for collaboration? Think again. Instant messaging platforms limit the collaboration abilities of your employees and drown them in a sea of notifications. They require employees to always be on and are hard to untangle.
You need a collaboration platform that can stretch across the entire organization and is built into the work you are already doing, including managing projects and processes. Employees should have contextual discussions around work, helping keep conversations focused on work and not chatter.
With too many collaboration tools to choose from, you need a way to match your needs with options out there. These questions will help you zero in on the tool most suitable for you:
of employees and executives believe lack of alignment within a team impacts the outcome of a task or project
of employees cite lack of collaboration or ineffective communication for workplace failures
is the number of emails employees receive per day. This overload results in critical mails getting lost, accidentally deleted, or just forgotten.
If you are still wondering how your workplace would look before and after the advent of a collaboration platform, here’s a comparison between before and after.
