How To Use Technology To Improve Team Collaboration

Technology has changed every aspect of the way businesses operate. It has improved the way teams communicate and has made team collaboration possible across time and space. In fact, you can now use technology to change the way your employees work together. In this blog, we’ll show you just how you can use technology to improve team collaboration.

Leverage Online Communication Tools

If you want to improve team collaboration,one of the best ways you can achieve this is by leveraging online communication tools, such as Slack and Skype. These tools allow multiple users to stay connected and work together on projects from any location on nearly any connected device.

With Slack, users can send direct messages and share documents and files with a single person or a group of employees. There is also the ability to organize conversations into different channels.

In essence, online communication channels save your employees from having to email colleagues, go from office to office, and leave voicemails every time they complete some element of work and pass it along to other team members. And the best part is you can connect your online communication tools to your ERP system by using Commercient IoT Pulse, which will not only help you to improve team collaboration, but will also help you to automate tasks. Check out all the apps that you connect with your ERP system using IoT Pulse on our integrations page.

Integrate Your Business Applications

Another great way you can improve team collaboration is by integrating your business applications. For example, if you have standalone CRM and ERP systems, by integrating the two using one of our SYNC data integration apps, you can see your ERP data in your CRM, and vice versa.

Commercient SYNC serves to keep you and your employees up-to-date with the changes made to your ERP and CRM system simultaneously, which helps to keep everyone on the same page. This helps to facilitate smooth workplace collaboration, creating a more positive day-to-day experience for your team.

Deploy Project Management Tools

Deploying project management tools can also help improve team collaboration. These tools can be used to enable collaborative working, and help teams reduce time spent on unnecessary administrative tasks.

For instance, tools like Asana allow users to assign and handle tasks effectively in one place removing the need for email communication between team members and creating projects that are easily tracked across your team. It gives everyone on your team visibility into what’s going on each task and gives each of your team members the ability to share attachments, follow conversations, comment on tasks, give feedback and much more. And what’s even better is that if you connect Asana to your ERP system using Commercient IoT Pulse, you’ll be able to automate tasks between your ERP system and Asana.
