Are you looking to improve your Mobile Collaboration in 2015? May be you are struggling to keep employees more connected. Possibly you are looking to graduate from basic mobile capabilities like calendaring and email, to more advance ones like file sharing and Web conferencing.
So if you have set your sights on mobile collaboration, then you are in luck because we are about to share with you some potentially impact full insights. Whatever your enterprise goal may be, here are three simple steps you can take to help achieve it.
Talk to your business users:
The prerequisite for improvement in Mobile Collaboration is a clear understanding of your strategy that must include your employee’s wants, readiness, needs and many more. All the tough questions can’t be answered by you yourself. To identify where you need to take your mobile strategy, facilitate an ongoing conversation with your business users or blast out a simple-to-complete internal survey. If you have small business, then do an in-person gut check to see where each employee stands. Just start the conversation and see where it takes you.
Do a trial run of one major program:
Sometimes better improvements are made after a leap of faith. For example you may be using Google Apps for work, as it provides users with custom email accounts, ability to work anywhere from any device, business-grade security and controls, and enabling IT to properly manage all devices and data. Before signing up, do try the program first in trail period. Google Apps is free for 30 days with no credit card or software download required.
Start with just one department:
Nearly half of business users want mobile access to office applications. Therefore, if you don’t have custom applications for your working departments like sales, HR, marketing and finance, then start identifying one department for which you can create or adopt an application. Always try to start with smaller department like HR or finance. Although it may have more complex user needs, but handling a launch may be a better approach then taking on a bigger department right away.
