3 Advantages of Collaborating Online

Whether a project team works out of the same building or from various locations, arranging a meeting for sharing ideas, developing a plan and making decisions presents numerous challenges. Missed appointments, unanswered phone calls and email messages as well as a lack of a centralized source for accessing and sharing documents often impair the process. Managing the collaboration process is actually a simple task using online tools including web conferencing, project management, instant messaging and mind mapping tools for brainstorming. Following are some of the key advantages of collaborating online with the latest technological innovations.

Efficiency

Team members are able to connect instantly with the right person, saving time and costs while simplifying ongoing tasks. The elimination of travel provides increased work time for team members to accomplish planned goals. Greater focus and interaction through online collaboration eliminates most distractions improving meeting quality and decision-making ability. A steady and organized workflow is easy to maintain by instantly uploading documents, making changes and notifying team members of the finished product for their review.

Easy Access

As long as team members have an Internet connection, they have the ability to work remotely from any location at any time to assemble the best project team available. Documents are located through one central source and organized to meet the needs of all projects members whether on the road, at the office or home. Documents are presented and shared for live collaboration at a common meeting place. For instant access, the vast array of mobile as well as desktop devices makes using collaboration tools easy.

Project Management

Project management requires frequent communication between team members for tracking resources, coordinating schedules and managing tasks. Collaboration tools for managing these resources include tracking and reporting of activities for greater productivity during crunch time with a large or diverse group. Generating detailed reports for all associated activities within a project is quick and easy leaving more time to focus on the big picture.
