Visual collaboration is changing the way we work and is now essential to every organisation, enabling them to ensure the rapid flow of business ideas, understanding, knowledge and expertise. Today’s reality is that traditional in-person meetings are time-consuming, expensive, and fast becoming environmentally unacceptable. Visual collaboration tools free your organisation to bring together colleagues, suppliers and partners to resolve issues, engage with customers and to help create opportunities.
Collaboration drives greater operational transparency, streamlined work processes, and stronger interpersonal relationships: people become true colleagues, rather than merely dispersed co-workers. Ultimately, this opens the door to better business: improved efficiency; innovation; growth; service agility; change management; and profitability.
But finding better ways to enable high-quality collaboration and a new culture of collaborative working is becoming critical.
As McKinsey and Company’s report ‘The 21st Century Organisation’ observes, “Raising the productivity of employees whose jobs can’t be automated is the next great performance challenge – and the stakes are high.”
Collaboration-enabling technologies have advanced rapidly, and visual collaboration takes this to a new level. It offers limitless potential for unifying globally dispersed colleagues, experts, partners, suppliers and customers. It enables every organisation to reinvent how, when, where and with whom their employees work face-to-face. In doing so, it makes global sharing and scaling of thinking, knowledge and resources a day-to-day reality.
