What if we told you there was a way to improve your employees’ productivity rates and daily workflows? If that sounds like something of interest to you, keep reading, because when implemented and used successfully, collaboration software can yield tremendous benefits to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
While in the past, group collaboration software was a tool primarily used by large businesses and corporate enterprises, SMBs are finding team collaboration software and strategies to be a cost-effective way to better align employee and business goals, streamline processes, and eliminate inefficiencies. Every business’ specific collaboration needs are different – for example, in some businesses, each person has a defined role and a project goes sequentially through each person until it is complete, whereas, in other business environments, collaboration is about being able to work on a document simultaneously (even when you are hundreds or thousands of miles apart). Collaborative software tools, such as SharePoint, have the ability to help manage and improve data flow and improve information sharing, thereby maximizing efficiency.
There is an increasing number of online collaboration software tools on the market today, and depending on your specific needs (e.g., communication, project management, or document sharing and collaboration), some may be better suited for your business than others. However, at ATB we believe that for many businesses Microsoft’s SharePoint is a great file sharing and collaboration resource with millions of users worldwide.
What’s more, the team at ATB can help you identify your specific needs and then customize SharePoint and its data flow by integrating it with various other tools and systems currently being used by your organization. This further enhances your employees’ ability to work more cohesively and often eliminates duplicative work across multiple platforms. But don’t just take our word for it – let ATB’s team of IT professionals provide you with a complimentary consultation to determine how collaborative software can work best for your business.
