Collaborating used to mean scheduling a meeting or e-mailing a document for review. Desktop sharing, instant messaging and video chat enable on-demand collaboration instantly across the organization, no matter where your employees are.
The phrase “two heads are better than one” has been around for hundreds of years. It makes sense; two people will be able to bring different perspectives to solve the problem. But what if those two heads are hundreds of miles apart and have data to share? What if there are a dozen heads, each with a piece of a puzzle that need to be combined in a logical format to create a solution?
Unified Communication systems, both on-premise and cloud, offer an array of solutions to the dilemma above. Users all over the world can come together on a conference call, share desktops and collaborate real time. Individuals can assume control with a click and take over as a presenter and all the while, instant messaging can be used to converse.
