Team collaboration tools are not what they used to be. In today’s workplace, members working on a project together may span time zones, not cubicle spaces. Whiteboards and conference rooms alone no longer satisfy the collaborative needs of a remote business landscape.
Teams are collaborating with these tools:
ShareFile is a cloud-based file-sharing service used by over 60 million of today’s professionals. Users can upload files with far greater capacity, speed and security than email. End users then follow a link to retrieve the file from the cloud. It’s that easy.
You can access, upload, transfer and modify documents from any location, and all changes to a file are tracked and reported in detail. ShareFile integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Outlook to provide a seamless, encrypted email solution; desktop folders and files are synced right up to your account, and across all your devices. It’s like turning around and handing a document to your co-worker sitting next to you, only that co-worker is on the other side of the world.
GoToMeeting is a way of holding collaborative meetings among colleagues from all corners of the world. Participants can see and hear each other on their respective monitors and even view each other’s screens as a way of presenting documents or images.
Up to 25 members can participate in a meeting at once, all in high definition, and the platform is compatible with PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone and Android devices.
Team collaboration is challenging when members are not in the same room. But these tools are bridging that divide.
