We all depend on a multitude of technologies to keep our companies and projects in motion, and lackluster tools almost always equate to compromised productivity. If you ever feel like you’re not doing enough to achieve growth, consider that it might just be what you’re using!
The tools we use to maximize productivity are woven into our professional lives on a day-to-day basis. We’re dependent upon hardware and software, whether they’re used for presentations, instant messaging, video conferencing, file and document sharing, or any other key collaborative process. Despite their importance, we’re prone to take them for granted and forget the degree to which they affect the completion of workplace objectives, both big and small. The one time we’re likely to become more actively aware of these technologies, however, is when they don’t work properly.
When Things Go Wrong
There are two major types of problems you might encounter when utilizing collaboration technology. For one, the tools you’re using might be dysfunctional on a technical level. Poor connection, slow response times, incompatibility, low audio and video quality, and clumsy installation are all examples. However, even if things are working fine in terms of their on-paper function, there are the issues of usability and education to consider. Since so many hardware and software solutions for collaboration are poorly designed in terms of interface or are integrated improperly into the team by the vendor, these problems arise far too often.
