Make meetings more productive
Collaboration tools aggregate everything you need to run constructive,
beneficial meetings. Track the time, location, and attendees, along with relevant files and
documents. Collaboration tools make it easy to ensure that your team will come to the meeting
prepared and ready to share.
Reduce communication overload
Often, one of the biggest obstacles to creative collaboration is that there is just
too much communication. Business users receive 90-100 non-essential emails every day.ii
What if time spent dealing with unnecessary communication could
be used more productively? With the right cloud collaboration tool
in place, it can. Cloud collaboration tools filter messages by groups
or teams, restricting information to relevant team members.
PRO TOOL TIP:
The best collaboration tools have custom
settings, allowing you to receive alerts and
notifications in real time or to roll messages
up into daily (or even weekly) digests.
Focus on innovation and creativity
Perhaps the most important
factor about effective cloud
collaboration software is the
way it can bring focus to your
team. Since these tools are built
primarily for workplace collaboration,
they seamlessly integrate into the
process of creation and innovation.
Many businesses rely on too many
different applications which take
context and focus away from the
work at hand. Instead of focusing on
technology, or the apps and systems
used to communicate, collaboration
tools should fade into the background,
so that you can focus on your projects,
innovations, and solutions.

tools are created equal.
