The success of an organization relies on its members’ ability to collaborate to achieve a common goal. With many small to medium sized businesses (SMB’s) converting to a paperless office structure and allowing employees to work from their home offices, their reliance on collaboration tools has never been more important. Several tools are now at our disposal to assist with demanding schedules, and conflicting deadlines.
When clients ask us to address common issues with deadline management, tracking reminders, or adherence to compliance standards, what they are really looking to achieve is an increase in productivity and overall effectiveness within their organization. We have found that implementing a flexible, systematic approach to managing documents, file structures, and calendars often results in success. We all know that gathering an entire team for remote collaborative sessions can be challenging. Also, the demand for increased client/customer collaboration is most often limited to email communication. Despite SMB’s now having the ability to leverage a multitude of technology solutions to improve efficiency and achieve success, choosing the right tools can be a daunting task.
