Posted in Collaboration Tools, Project/Task Management by tiajones on September 29, 2008

Sure, collaboration software makes life so much easier for the task manager, but what does the worker bee stand to benefit from adopting new methods of conjointly accomplishing goals. Here are some high beaming features that are sure to win over even the most skeptical of teammates.

Collaboration software is not a hard sell provided your team is fully geared towards optimization. That is to say, collaboration software is an absolute no-brainer provided your team wishes to improve in every aspect possible from efficiently delegating tasks to sharing information to communicating ideas in real time. The concept of a shared online workspace renders file sharing centralized in a forum easily navigated and accessed by your teammates.

Because of recent innovations in collaboration software, project management is a breeze; however, what is beneficial to the group leader is also beneficial to the group itself. Here are some selling points your team should consider when making the jump from the old school methodology to the new school technology:

• Collaboration software is template driven and thereby eliminates the need for special certifications and extensive IT knowledge. Collaboration software is more attuned towards the business minded and not so much the tech heads.

• Workspaces are set up within minutes rather than months of implementing strict policies, which serve only as a way of gradually conditioning certain desired behaviors from your team members. With collaboration software, you can quickly establish that precious infrastructure necessary to spur your team into full stride towards that goal mark without the grueling grace period and learning curve.

• The shared online workspace also encourages the entire team to contribute, because each task and communicated idea is represented visually with a file icon and author information, a tally of one’s productivity is easily kept therefore stimulating some healthy competition amongst your team members. Who can be the most productive?

• Information is easily accessible by all including any and all conversations communicated through the collaboration software. The pressures of faulty human memory are relieved.

Collaboration software also allows mobile access from web enabled phones for on-the-go productivity and interaction.

These reasons alone should convince even the most stubborn of ‘Doubting Thomas’s’ to make that jump into the 21st century and utilize the advancements in information technology to boost their work efficiency.
