Don't Just Communicate - Collaborate

Posted by Phil Bowers, Senior Marketing Manager on Nov 20, 2017

This model was based on a few key stakeholders making decisions and relaying those decisions to employees through internal communication programs such as email or print newsletters, memos or staff meetings. Businesses did not have tools to allow them to maximize their time and employee contributions by collaborating efficiently and productively. Traditionally, the only communication options most businesses had were phone calls and in-person meetings, the first of which creates a strange dynamic that ignores non-verbal communications, the latter of which limits efficiency and productivity at the expense of a meeting.
