Digital collaboration: driving international success

Team work makes the dream work and being able to collaborate digitally is fundamental.

As companies look to invest in digital transformation plans, one consistent objective of the action is to increase efficiency and streamline activities. The act of improving collaboration is at the very core of a digital transformation plan, which helps to align companies by implementing the latest technologies in order to boost their productivity to the highest possible levels. Many tools, such as Enterprise Content Management and Document Management Solutions, encourage collaborative behaviour and businesses would be foolish to ignore the potential benefits of doing so.

Collaboration is the concept of businesses working together, calling upon professionals from different departments or offices to unite and put their minds into one to focus on a task or project. By doing so, companies can find a range of benefits for their firm and reap the rewards whilst also benefiting all of those involved. With so much to gain from pursuing a more active collaboration model, companies must consider the role that digital optimisation solutions can play in ensuring that such a policy can be deployed effectively. If planned and executed well, it can be a surefire way to motivate staff and improve results.

When distance can prove difficult, solutions that form part of a digital transformation plan can provide an answer. With a shared online workspace, professionals can communicate instantly via messaging platforms or even via discussion forums which encourage various members of the team to get involved and pitch their thoughts, ideas and opinions. Regardless of whether every colleague involved is in the same office, department or even country, such tools make working together on a project simple and also help to ensure the most powerful results possible.

Combining in this way leads to a clear and direct impact for the company, who benefits from a more creative workforce that works more efficiently and as a result cuts costs. Beyond that though, staff are more motivated when working on collaborative projects and feel happier in the long-term, particularly amongst the younger generation of the workforce. As such, productivity increases even further and management can ensure that everyone throughout the organisation is satisfied with the working environment. 

This is a fundamental reason why a decision to invest in collaboration offers a clear return on investment for any firm. With both short-term and long-term results which provide sufficient incentive, it would be wise for management to consider a digital transformation plan sooner rather than later. If companies do implement such a plan, they can maximise their ability to reap the benefits and attract the brightest talent before their competitors can.

    Create shared workspaces

    Shared workspaces eases processes and strengthens integration, particularly in companies with offices in different locations working on one unified project. As such, it is just one way that Enterprise Content Management and similar tools can work to make the world a smaller place and make it easier for a company to find success.

    One of the most impressive findings from a 16-year study by Idea Champions was that only 3% of workers create their best ideas whilst in the office. By being able to collaborate, these ideas can easily be shared from wherever a professional has an idea.
