After more than two years since the outbreak, we are living in the 'post-pandemic' or 'with Corona' era, and working tools and environments have adapted to hybrid work.

Let's review your technology tools with the following questions and see how we can use our tools more effectively.


Evaluate your collaboration tools from a productive perspective


  • ✨ Do your productivity tools make you more efficient and/or effective?
  • ✨ Is your organization maximizing your productivity tools to their fullest potential (beyond meetings and chat)?  
  • ✨ Does your organization integrate your existing productivity tools with Zoom or Microsoft Teams?
  • ✨ Is collaboration taking place in a rich and integrative capacity in your organization? 
  • ✨ Can your team easily find and access shared files and documents and work collaboratively in real-time? 

How to use collaboration tools effectively with enhanced productivity

If you're looking for ways to enhance your collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams and Zoom and use them for more than just chats and meetings, here are a few ideas to get you started: 

📁 File and document sharing: Make sure everyone has access to the same files and documents by using a shared repository or cloud storage service.

🎛️ Integrations: Connect your collaboration tools with other apps and services to streamline workflows and get more done.
