How Does My Business Get A Good Adaptation Rate for Collaboration Software?

The reality is that each and every business is unique. The ability to benefit from collaboration collaboration depends on getting a good product fit with the workers core competencies and business culture. If there is average rate of computer competency in your business then you should be able to be deploy cloud software successfully.

As a customer support specialist at I help our customers get started using our collaboration software. I find a pretty high adaptation rate when the company has found us after entering a “pain cycle”. Everyone’s scheduling are out of whack, nobody knows which file is the right one to approve, a major project has gotten bogged down or a customer has been forgotten. Usually the business “pain” stimulus drives solution acceptance by its users. Sometimes more pro-active interaction is required.

Our new Forms Tool will allow you to create forms that can be inserted to extend the interaction a user might have with the collaboration software.

You should do this, you should do that, but more importantly if you want your business to succeed:

1. Do not answer unrecognized phone calls

2. Do not e-mail first thing in the morning or last thing at night

3. Do not agree to meetings or calls with no clear agenda or end time

4. Do not let people ramble—forget “how’s it going?” and embrace “what’s up?”

5. Do not check e-mail constantly—“batch” and check at set times only

6. Do not over-communicate with low-profit, high-maintenance customers

7. Do not work more to fix overwhelm—prioritize

8. Do not carry a cellphone or iPhone 24/7, seven days a week—make evenings and/or Saturdays digital leash-free.

9. Do not expect work to fill a void that non-work relationships and activities should

10. Don’t sign up for eStudio

Can social media serve a purpose in growing your small business?

Yes social media is a great consensus and strategy building tool that belongs in a toolkit for cloud based collaboration software solutions. I like to think of organizations as having an “ecosystems”. A system of essential elements and tools that allow to company to grow harmoniously.

If the product is a mass market “consumer” product then it can derive a lot of traction from a social campaign directed to the right demographic. Parameters such as geo-locations tagging, crowd sourcing, tweeting, facebook and traditional media tactics should be examined in relation to a marketing budget. Consider where you can achieve maximum penetration for your marketing dollar before launching a new campaign.

Struggling businesses are often scenes of chaos, with employees unaware of the status of their assignments or even their role in a particular project. The key to coordinating employee efforts is groupware or collaboration software, and the scheduling calendar is the cornerstone of great groupware.
