Webinar - Are Your Employees Collaborating Effectively?
By Alicia Young, Web Editor
If you ask anybody who works in an office or remotely, they’ll all tell you that when it comes to communications and collaboration methods, there’s always room for improvement. Unified communications (UC) have been touted as the answer to all of our problems when it comes to communicating—they’re supposed to simplify the process, make us more productive and ensure that collaboration is as easy as possible. In a lot of ways, UC does do all those things. However, there are still some problems remaining.
Today, the average employee uses seven different cloud-based applications to stay connected and communicate with other employees, project teams, vendors and partners. While it’s great that there are so many options available for communicating, seven different applications is a lot to keep track of. It’s almost impossible to use time wisely and productively when you’re busy checking each application for a new message.
Additionally, mobile first communication and collaboration have become an important part of office operations. With so many people working on the go or entirely remotely, it’s important for all businesses to stay up to date on the latest in mobile applications. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons—security concerns, type of industry, etc.— not all companies feel that they need to take a mobile first approach. This again affects productivity because employees are unable to collaborate on any device, anywhere.
For those interested in UC breakthroughs that have occurred thus far, and how to fix some of the major problems still remaining, there will be a webinar on this topic on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 2:00 p.m. EST / 11:00 a.m. PST. The webinar, titled “Collaborate Better: The Role of Technology in Successful Teams,” will be presented by Ryan Smith, Director, Cloud Marketing, Mitel, and monitored by TMC’s (News - Alert) Group Editorial Director Erik Linask. Smith will discuss how to: recover up to an hour of productivity each day, eliminate silos between employees, partners and vendors, better align communications to the way teams work today, and collaborate in real-time.
IT management, department leaders or anyone interested in the topic of UC should consider joining the webinar tomorrow. You can register HERE.
