Emerging digital workspace solutions are vital tools for an industry with a distributed workforce.
The use of collaboration technology such as videoconferencing is becoming increasingly widespread across a variety of industries, and for good reason. Bandwidth speeds easily accommodate video without the latency issues, employers have greater incentive to provide a flexible work environment to attract and retain top workers, and more companies deploy geographically distributed workforces, creating an additional barrier to management and culture-building.
Collaboration technology, when positioned correctly and embraced by employees, increases productivity. One company, for example, adopted collaboration tools and reduced wasted time by as much as 30 percent, according to a study by management consulting firm McKinsey.
