A seamless team collaboration system is an essential tool to ensure business continuity, and that has never been more necessary than in 2020. With often unexpected transitions between working inside and outside of the office, you need a system that is easily adaptable so that your workflow doesn’t have to stop.
We’re going to introduce you to our multi-award-winning collaboration platform, which makes communication simple and easily accessible, wherever your team are working from.
What is a team collaboration tool?
Our team collaboration tool is a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) based system, meaning that all calls and content is transmitted via the Internet, instead of via traditional copper lines. This provides a more reliable and secure connection.
The system is accessible from a wide range of devices, in two different formats. It’s available to access from a desktop computer, tablet and mobile phone. You can sign into your account via an easy-to-use application and even a web browser.
The accessibility of our multi-award-winning solution makes it an ideal tool for remote working, as your employees can continue working on any of their devices, without the need to download software or invest in new hardware.
Connect with colleagues
One of the main issues businesses are finding while being in lockdown is that their departments are disconnecting. With our multi-award-winning collaboration system, you can instantly connect with all your colleagues as if you were still in the office.
The tool allows you to see all your colleagues, their status and availability in one place! You are able to see which team members are on lunch, working on a specific project, in meetings and more.
In addition to this, employees can also be grouped into their relevant departments. This is a great tool if there are a lot of people within the company, as each employee can be listed in the team that they fall into. So it’s super easy for you to find the member of staff that you’re looking for.
You can also change your own status at any time in just a few simple clicks! Going over to your personal icon in the top right corner of the application, you can choose to display as available, away or do not disturb. You also have the option to write a message to inform your colleagues of what you’re currently doing. For example, you may set your status to “do not disturb – in a meeting”.
Staying in touch
There is a search bar in the top left corner which allows you to easily search through your contacts. You can begin typing the name or number and you’ll see the contact appear. When you hover your mouse over the user, you will see a list of options, including making a call, sending an SMS or an email.
This feature also allows you to dial an outside number just how you’d use any other phone. All of your incoming and outgoing calls can be dealt with straight from any of your devices.
It can be frustrating and confusing to have multiple applications or tabs open, with alerts for different notifications appearing from them all. Or having calls come through on your work mobile, with emails on your laptop. With our team collaboration tool, moving between apps or devices is no longer needed.
It’s possible to chat, call, video conference and more all from the same place. This means that all of your notifications will now be available in one location.
Whether employees are working remotely, or you need to have a meeting with a client based across the country, you will be able to connect via HD video conferencing.
Not only are you able to conduct seamless conferences, but your business productivity is also likely to increase. A recent study shows that 89% of workers find video conferencing reduces the time required to complete projects or tasks.
With our communications system, video conferences can be joined, and even hosted, from any device! This means that your team will be able to connect and collaborate at any time, from any location.
The button marked by a plus symbol is the “Add” button, which allows you to do additional features. Including sending an SMS or fax and creating a group chat. The group chat feature is a great tool for alerting all team members of news, or using it as an area to collaborate on projects.
Additionally, you have the option to add a post-it note in this menu. These can be used as a personal reminder for yourself or a message for a colleague.
Seamless Project Collaboration
Collaborating on projects has never been easier. The possibility to simply share screens and files makes working together a quick and stress free task.
Screen-sharing allows smooth collaboration while working remotely. You can invite a user to view your device screen with our seamless collaboration tool. This is also a great tool when training staff, as they will be able to see everything that you are doing on your screen in real time.
As well as sharing your screen, you can also share files. With a simple drag and drop motion, you can share documents with your team in your instant messaging chats. They can then view, download and edit the files. File-sharing saves so much time instead of emailing back and forth. Furthermore, your files aren’t compressed in the process, meaning your large files will stay high quality.
Why do I need a team collaboration tool?
A recent study found that 66% of remote workers said they are more productive working from home than in the office. Using our cost-effective system simplifies all projects, and therefore will increase your business productivity by reducing task completion time, whether your team are working remotely or in the office.
From a mobile app, to a web browser, all features are accessible from any device, in any location! Our collaboration tool allows you to work efficiently 24/7. Therefore, creating a seamless transition to and from working inside and outside of the office.
