Communication and collaboration are major pillars of an effectively and efficiently operating organization.
Today, your employees wish to work in their particular mode. They are more and more demanding with regard to their employers. The 9 to 5 no longer exists. No matter when and where they are, they want to be able to access their work tools. They live in a world without strict barriers between professional and private life.
The arrival of the new generation of workers, the so-called generations x, y and z, accelerates this phenomenon even more. This new workforce is permanently connected, hooked to their cell phone and permanently exchanging information through social media.
Your mission is to choose the right tools, i.e. the tools that respond to their wishes and that will allow them to be more productive. The choice is essential but the adoption is of prime importance! In order to be effective, they need to feel familiar to your employees and they must be easy to learn. Simple and intuitive.
You can only win!
If users are happy, they will be more productive. If they can smoothly communicate and work together, your time-to-market will be shorter. If they gain time, your efficiency will be higher.

Unified communication tools
Once registered in your Active Directory, your users must be able to communicate together and with the outside world through a series of integrated channels: e-mail, instant messaging, landline and mobile telephony and videoconferencing.

Enterprise Social Networks
By analogy with general public social media such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, companies and public institutions can offer their employees social platforms for internal use within their organization.
These enterprise networks allow you to rapidly and efficiently find the right person, updated information or a specific document by appealing to the community of employees. One of the main advantages of these platforms, is the way in which they stimulate the sharing of knowledge and how they accelerate innovation within the organization.
