Why does digital collaboration matter?
Collaboration used to live somewhere between conference room meetings and sticky notes left on desks. It wasn’t efficient then and it isn’t efficient now.
The problem with these methods is that even though they offer instantaneous communication, they aren’t visible to everyone and can’t be kept in context with other project information. In the fast-paced age of cloud technology and digital transformation, there’s no reason why you can’t keep information where everyone can see it when they need it.
Remote work is on the rise.
Today’s workforce is nearly unrecognizable, even when looking only a decade in the past. For the first time in history, workers are not confined to an office. The rise of cloud-based software and standard business applications has made it easier to collaborate and communicate. Fewer and fewer meetings happen without at least one person conferencing into the meeting remotely.
Digital collaboration happens when people and work are connected in digital workspaces. Team members can access projects and tasks from anywhere, communication can happen in real-time, and everyone knows exactly where to go to find accurate information, making it easier than ever to manage remote teams.
Collaboration Improves Productivity
Effective collaboration improves internal and external communication and gives team members a way to talk through project updates. Your team is able to benefit from shared knowledge, powering through problems collectively that would take months for a single individual to resolve. With digital collaboration tools, your team can:
- Align goals and contribute their collective knowledge
- Share new, innovative ideas across teams
- Address issues in real-time
- Keep up with changes and shifting priorities
- Increase work velocity
- Reduce project turnaround time
- Improve speed to market
