These tools enable communication and information management, helping push information to people and allowing discussion of projects to assist with making important decisions.
Collaboration platforms for business is not a new concept: e-mail, instant messaging, voice and video conferencing, discussion forums and groupware: this is an incomplete list of various collaboration tools that people has been using for years, and for different purposes, including business-related communications.
Only now, however, has it reached the peak where you have to use professional online collaboration tools integrated with your business and productivity applications and processes to have the best chance of success. Email is no longer enough.
Collaboration is a natural means providing access to information, but also and most importantly, encouraging collaboration in project tracking directly adds value via the platform, making it about:
- Document sharing (spreadsheets, presentations, text files, etc.);
- Exchanging information and communication about initiatives in progress;
- Project updates, monitoring and management.
A variety of platforms exist, and may depend on the type of project concerned. Some solutions will adapt themselves to all projects, while others require some customization. As such, it is advisable to choose the solution that meets your main objectives in terms of collaboration:
- Continuous improvement;
- Development of innovation;
- Organisational Productivity.
