What is remote collaboration?
Remote collaboration is the process by which geographic distance is removed as a deterrent to teamwork. It facilitates communication, collaboration and productivity among a dispersed team of employees, wherever they are, to achieve a common goal. Remote collaboration tools can help bring even far-flung employees together.
What are the business benefits of remote collaboration?
With a well-defined remote collaboration strategy and the tools to implement that strategy, organizations can:
- Enhance enterprise collaboration, using modern collaboration platforms to reimagine workflows and help employees connect to people and data across geographies.
- Redefine work by shifting from a business-centric to an employee-centric “anywhere anytime, any device” model—while keeping the enterprise compliant and secure.
- Foster teamwork among and increase the productivity of remote employees, via tools such as teleconferencing, video conferencing, file sharing, cross-channel messaging and unified workspace software. Collaboration software is the foundation for remote worker productivity.
- Bring together collaboration platforms and systems like Microsoft Teams, Amazon Chime, Cisco Webex, Amazon WorkDocs and more, eliminating management hassles across discrete tools.
