Eliminate inefficient ways of working in your day-to-day life with all-in-one tool

Collaborative work management is crucial in today’s work environment. Yet, many organizations and teams struggle to incorporate efficient collaboration into their daily routines. This isn’t from a lack of trying—quite the opposite. Teams are trying too hard, as they are overwhelmed with numerous different collaboration tools. Throw in the fact that teams are becoming more geographically dispersed, and you have a recipe for disaster.

It’s not that anyone on your team doesn’t want to work collaboratively. It’s just when you add in a few time zone differences, factor in that priority list sitting in your inbox, and finally dig into those spreadsheets waiting to be reconciled – well, you get the picture. How can anyone calm the work chaos?

For starters, you need to recognize the high cost of inefficient work collaboration – it costs organizations up to 45 working days a year! Wow, I am shocked at how much time is lost that could be devoted to business agility and responding to new projects.

Also consider the new normal of working with team members around the world. In my opinion, this can make communicating a real nightmare. To make matters worse, 39% of managers lack workload visibility. It’s difficult for anyone to see whether they have the right people in the pipeline to tackle new demand if they can’t clearly see all the moving parts.

An all-in-one work collaborative tool can make a night-and-day difference when it comes to daily efficiency. In fact, 43% of project managers agree that they need an all-in-one tool to get things done. Take it from Rob, who is featured in the below infographic. Many leaders can relate to this story. It tells a visual story of what your day might look if you were to eliminate inefficient ways of working… see how Rob’s day changes with an all-in-one work collaboration tool. No doubt, I think you’ll find that an all-in-one tool that includes document sharing, a view into plans and tasks, and workload management can make a huge difference.
