Did you know that? On average, employees receive 88 emails per day according to a study by The Radicati Group. These emails come from customers, service providers, partners, newsletters, but also mostly from internal collaborators to follow up on current projects, exchange documents, talk to each other to plan meetings.
So, how can we encourage employees and teamwork in this daily routine? This is the role of collaboration tools. Software and applications are either installed on your computer or accessible directly online. Their mission is to support employees in the implementation of projects. Work more efficiently as a team by synchronizing data (email, calendar, information flows, file modifications, customer databases, etc.) in real time.
