Effective communication is a key aspect of any successful organization. Using the right communication tools can not only improve productivity, it can also impact your bottom line. Cloud-based communication tools provide businesses with an easy and affordable way to improve internal and external communication.
Below we've highlighted three ways businesses can use the cloud to enhance their communications:
- Increase employee productivity
The consumerization of IT has let to an uptick in the use of personal devices for business. Employees are increasingly using their mobile devices to email and collaborate with clients and co-workers. Cloud productivity tools, such as Office 365, allow mobile workers to create, store and share documents with each other using a consistent platform across multiple devices.
- Improve organizational visibility in real-time
Cloud-based ERP solutions, such as Dynamics GP, allow you to automate redundant tasks and workflows commonly associated with financial and supply-chain management. Together, Dynamics GP and Office 365 give employees the ability to visualize and interact with data in real-time from virtually anywhere.
- Effectively collaborate with external clients and vendors
Cloud collaboration tools such as Skype for Business and Yammer use VoIP technologies to make it easy for teams to meet remotely, have group discussions,and view or share documents with each other. Extend the conversation beyond the organization by creating customer and vendor groups to improve project collaboration.
Using the cloud as a platform for communication and collaboration allows organizations create a seamless user experience across multiple devices while giving employees universal access to email, file sharing, and VoIP technology - so they can be productive from any where, at any time.
