Seven Solutions to Boost Your Business Communications

Seven Solutions to Boost Your Business Communications

Communication is a key business need, and as such, there are a variety of solutions devoted to improving your business’ communications strategy in some way, shape, or form. Here, we’ll go over these solutions, and discuss why they aren’t really “options,” but actually requirements for today’s business.

1. Video Conferencing

While it’s hard to beat face-to-face conversation when you’re trying to communicate, video conferencing provides what is possibly the next best thing. Video conferencing solutions enable you to hold meetings with groups that could very well be separated by vast distances, without sacrificing too many of the communicative benefits of a face-to-face, in-person meeting. As a result, collaboration is more convenient via the increased accessibility to the rest of a team.

2. Chat Platforms

For those conversations that need little more than a sentence or two to complete, a chat platform is an excellent tool for business users to leverage. Not only do these platforms offer an efficient means of collaboration, they also maintain a record of what has been discussed and what progress has been made on a project. Teammates can share ideas and inspiration as they strike, advancing towards their final goal more effectively.

3. Voice over Internet Protocol

Voice over Internet Protocol, often referred to as VoIP, has proven to be an extremely cost-effective communication tool for businesses to use. As it runs off of your existing Internet connection, you can eliminate the added cost of traditional telephony, only needing to pay a relatively nominal fee for the minor equipment needed. Furthermore, VoIP is very easily scalable, featuring more or less plug-in-and-play functionality. In short, VoIP allows you to provide your employees with a necessary communication tool, without breaking the bank.

4. Mobile Devices/Bring Your Own Device

Mobile devices have been a somewhat controversial topic in the workplace, especially since smartphones turned what was once a simple means of communication into a phone, a web browser, and a comprehensive entertainment suite in one compact package. However, with the right preparations, mobile devices can prove to be a huge benefit to a business’ operations. After all, if configured to be sufficiently secure, a mobile device could allow an employee to maintain their productivity from effectively everywhere.

Bring Your Own Device (or BYOD) strategies can compound this benefit by eliminating the need to procure mobile devices as well and allow an employee to work with a device that they are comfortable with - more likely than not improving their productivity.

5. Intranet

Maintaining a company intranet - effectively, a centralized portal for employees to access files they need - makes it easier for all employees to remain productive. This includes those utilizing BYOD or who work remotely. An Intranet solution is a solid means of uniting your workforce toward a single goal.

6. Cloud Services

Most cloud services today have some aspect of collaborative capabilities baked in. What this means is that multiple members of your organization can work together on a document, regardless of where they are, with everyone’s updates reflected for everyone. The primary benefit to this is that collaboration isn’t something that everyone involved needs to assemble for, which allows progress to be made more quickly.

7. Unified Communications

One of the best tools for a business’ communication needs is a unified communications platform. This platform enables your employees to keep each other apprised of progress toward goals, as well as promotes collaboration between them. Offering a variety of communication methods via a single platform, unified communication solutions are a great tool for the business that takes its internal interactions seriously.
