Simplicity of Communication

Your collaboration solution needs to be useful and, crucially, usable. Look for a solution that is simple and intuitive, without the need for training, which your team won't want to attend anyway. Aside from not needing to dedicate additional IT resources towards training, this has the added benefit of increasing adoption and satisfaction with the new solutions. Also, it's tempting to evaluate collaboration tools based on feature lists – and assume that a longer feature list means a better product – but thinking about features in this way is ill-advised. Instead, you need a solution that offers a feature set that will actually benefit your team, as opposed to lots of features that sound good but add no value.

Enterprise professionals are often on the move, working on the next big sale or strategizing new partnership negotiations, so they are aware of the challenges that working remotely poses for productivity. Enterprise professionals also need to stay on top of their work in the interim, whether that's from a hotel room, train station or airport. A major factor to being productive on the road is communication and collaboration.

There's no magic bullet, but the essentials are to make sure to have the right tools at your disposal while on the move to communicate with your teams in ways that fit your needs, as well as being flexible, clear and direct in your communication (especially when collaboration is asynchronous rather than real-time, as is often the case across multiple time zones). Because reliability and availability are essential for a worker on the move, here's an outline of five ways to stay productive while working remotely from web collaboration experts LoopUp.
