What Is Digital Collaboration?
Similar to many other companies, your employees might be trapped in silos, separated by department, geography, or their use of different tools.
When they are disconnected, your employees might be misaligned, disengaged, and less able to collaborate, get things done, share knowledge, and combine their ideas with others. This negatively impacts your organization’s ability to innovate and reach your performance goals.
Digital collaboration transforms your company into a unified successful business force by connecting your people, information, digital tools, and company communications in one convenient place.
The technologies available today have already started to change the way companies work and organize themselves. Work is becoming modular and skills more accessible.

How Is Digital Collaboration Different from Other Communication Tools?
1990s: Traditional intranets go unused
Traditional intranet and extranet portals focus on sharing static content with employees and customers.
Unfortunately, these do nothing to connect and engage your communities or to help teams work together, share knowledge and interact.
2000s: New tools, new silos, and tool overload
Enterprise social networks (ESNs), project management, and team communication tools introduced new collaboration methods into the enterprise.
Great for small teams, they failed to deliver on the company-wide scale however, while the multiplicity of tools, created new information silos and new problems.
2010s: Digital collaboration
Today’s digital collaboration software programs package all the innovative capabilities from the 2000s into one platform, closely integrated with your business applications.
The resulting digital workplace leads to engaged, productive employees and an innovative, enduring company culture.
