As your company grows, you may expand geographically and open additional offices. With physical distance, effective use of communication technology is important for productivity, teamwork, and a shared company culture. Here’s some tips for maintaining communication between multiple offices.
Leverage Cloud Technology
Collaboration between multiple locations can be consistent and accelerated with the use of cloud technology. One of the many benefits is the elimination of tracking different versions when working on a project. Team members can work together on a project with instant updates, access anytime, and on any device.
Establish Employee Chats
Instant messaging or chats make it easy for your workers to communicate, even if they are not located in the same office space. To enable staff to benefit from instant communication throughout the day, consider establishing a dedicated chat channel for specific departments. Your team may find that sending a chat is easier and less formal than writing an email or placing a phone call.
Set up Remote Meetings
Save time and money by leveraging online meeting technology. You can still have the benefits of a face-to-face or team meeting, but using the Internet to connect everyone can be helpful with multiple locations. With the use of webcams, screen sharing, and online meeting software, you can easily host monthly or weekly meetings with staff, customers or partners.
