What Makes a Great Team Collaboration Software

Published on 31 August, 2017




In 2015, Gallup's Work & Education Poll found that 37% of the U.S workforce have telecommuted to work, and later research estimated that as much as 60% of the workforce would be working form home by 2022. These statistics make it abundently clear that online communication tools are becoming critical to how future businesses operate.

So what makes a great team collaboration software?

 

Integration

While there are a number of interesting team collaboration platforms on the market, most of them tend to be hyper vertical. In other words, they do only one thing - chat. And although this seems like a great idea, it often clutters your work life, since you're still dealing with chat apps on your phone, social media chats, emails and so on. Integration to systems that you're already using makes a team collaboration tool far easier to use, and less of a hassle.

 

Technology

With half of our lives spent on our smartphones, it's crucial that whatever tool you're using for work offers apps and web platforms to operate from. Especially if you're working remotely. 

 

Simplicity

The remote working stats highlighted at the start of this article show an interesting development. With 60% of people potentially working from home, not all of those people are technologically savvy. People working in the media and tech industries tend to be early adopters and pick up ideas such as team collaboration software quickly, but what about the rest? The simple truth is that a great platform makes sense to those are far less familiar with tech.
