You and email have been together for so many years, it’s hard to imagine breaking up. Perhaps you don’t have to break up, instead you should start seeing other communication tools.
Collaboration software has matured to the point where it can no longer be ignored. Small and large companies alike are moving toward web-based collaboration software and finding that their dependance on email is lessening and that the tools provided with collaboration software (like SharePoint) is allowing them to be more productive and better communicators.
How does collaboration software such as SharePoint and Huddle help me and why would I want to leave my email?
For example, it’s really not about leaving email behind, but rather using more efficient methods of communication. Collaboration software has tools built-in, making communication with teams far more effective than email alone. For example:
SharePoint offers these 6 communication tools:
- Document Libraries with version control
- Lists for storing up-to-date information
- Discussion Boards
- Micro Blogs
- Wiki Pages
These tools can boost your communication to a level of efficiency beyond your current email capabilities.
