A Modern Workplace Must Have a Collaboration Technology Suite

Published on October 4, 2019

At experteq we focus heavily on assisting organisations who are on the journey of modernising their workplace. A modern workplace must deal with distributed teams, virtual work and collaborative efforts.

 

When I discuss modernisation with IT leadership, many collaboration tools pop up in the discussion. This is part of the problem. Which tools should organisations leverage?

 

Some prefer to communicate via WhatsApp and others love Slack. Communication through multiple channels makes collaboration inefficient. But when all parties are on the same page and leverage one set of technologies, it makes collaboration tools drive business comms effectively and efficiently.

 

I have long made the case for #Microsoft being the gold standard when it comes to collab tools. Office365 lets teams share, edit documents and collaborate in real time. There is nothing worse than editing a document only to realise that you were working on an old or conflicted copy. Office 365 gets rid of multiple versions of a document; instead, teams work on the same document in real time from anywhere in the world.

 

Regardless of the tools you pick, go for standardisation, so you can benefit from the power of collab suites.
