Telecommunications Collaboration Tools Go Mainstream
Over the past decade, telecommunications collaboration tools have steadily evolved to become the must-have alternative to traditional audio conferencing. Technology advances such as cloud services, ubiquitous network connectivity (Wi-Fi, 3G/4G), mobility and WebRTC (Real-Time Communications) are making telecommunications collaboration tools inexpensive and accessible, moving them closer to widespread adoption.
Today, scalability and affordability have extended telecommunications collaboration beyond the boardroom to meet the demands of a growing mobile workforce. Cloud-based telecommunications collaboration tools have enabled companies to realize the full benefits of video: face-to-face contact, efficient knowledge transfers and a degree of personal interaction that’s proven critical for businesses hoping to gain a competitive advantage. The coexistence of and, increasingly, the transition from expensive, conference room-based telecommunications collaboration hardware to software-based desktop and mobile devices strengthens corporate agility, responsiveness and productivity.
