Imagine a world where the only time you and your team collaborated was in face-to-face meetings that required precious time spent traveling and planning. In today’s business world, this is an outdated and impractical notion that could lead to a significant loss of productivity.
Today, employees are mobile and your staff may be located all over the country. In order to foster team collaboration, your business needs flexible business communication tools that enable quick teamwork to solve business problems.
Communication Tools that Drive Collaboration
Effective employee collaboration relies on convenient tools that encourage team members to share information, as well as plan and innovate together. However, many businesses lack the communication equipment their teams need to collaborate efficiently.
Your employees access information from their desks, laptops, cell phones, and a variety of other devices and locations. 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.
Your current phone system may have limitations for both you and your team that hinder collaboration. It’s drastically more difficult for remote employees to access company systems for conferencing and voicemail with personal landlines and cell phones. Thankfully, there’s a relatively simple way to solve that problem: implementing a company-owned communication system that’s flexible, mobile, and collaborative.
Functional and Professional Tools to Connect Employees
A unified communication system encourages collaboration between team members. Utilizing a basic Internet connection, it becomes easier to receive company calls, access corporate voicemail, and setup virtual conferences. It takes only one click to start a meeting or share a document rather than having separate emails, links, and phone numbers that interrupt the flow of conversation.
Traditional phone systems often restrict collaboration because of their limited mobile capability, resulting in lost money, lost productivity, and lost opportunities. Plus, 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, and suppliers from almost any location at which your employees work, and opens the door for improved collaboration.
Encourage your employees to connect and collaborate with a unified communication system. Contact Dataprise today to learn how your business can benefit from cloud communications.
