Collaborative technology sets the standard for modern businesses – helping organisations transform themselves into a more productive and sustainable enterprise. With advanced collaboration in place, your business can take advantage of the latest technology to boost performance and cut expenses.
Research from SMART Technology shows that businesses which combine the latest collaborative solutions with industry best practices transform their company in a number of key areas – and get the most from their collaborative investment.
Get together, get innovative
Collaboration makes teamwork more powerful and with the right technology – plus a solid strategy – you can expect a drastic rise in the rate of innovation. Because group sessions are made more accessible, quicker and effective to everyone, you can get your best guys working on key projects – no matter where they are.
Which is why 80% of business owners with an advanced collaboration strategy say they see an accelerated rate of innovation. With collaborative technology your best guys are always available to get their heads together and come up with that next killer idea.
Your customers just got happier
Keep your customers happy and they’ll not only come back for more, but they’ll tell all their friends about you too. Social media gives the consumer a much louder voice and customer experience has never been more important. Bad reviews can hurt your business, but a good word can go a long way on social networks – something you can use to your advantage.
You can innovate your customer care too, using collaborative technology to enhance the buying experience of your customers. Advanced video conferencing means you can connect to almost any device, while video recording and streaming lets you create an archive of live and recorded footage. Stand out as a business that innovates customer care, with video calls from customer service and a catalogue of video tips and tutorials on how to get the best experience from your brand.
Save money by saving the environment
One of the key reasons to invest in collaborative technology is that your business can save big by cutting future expenses. Take out the unnecessary expense of business travel and your organisation can drastically slash its outgoings, while creating a more environmentally friendly business.
The future of business is green and government law continues to include more environmental requirements for you to meet. Which is fine – because saving the planet can save you a fortune too. With true collaboration you can cut out the business travel and use remote working to save your staff the daily commute. Not only that, but the digital workplace doesn’t waste paper!
The modern business realises that a happy workforce is the strongest asset to a company. These are the people that make the magic happen and 65% of collaborative business owners say their strategy has helped them to create a happier team.
With a flexible working strategy you can restore the work/life balance and create a company where people love to work. There are business perks to flexible working too, meaning you can drop the predictable office hours and use remote working to get things done when you really need it.
