Using Collaborative Technology to Boost Productivity

The Workplace Transformation

The workplace is always changing, and the same can be said for the way we communicate with one another.  The shift is being made from formal scheduled meetings over to informal, on-the-fly meetings.  We also see that the spaces in which meetings are held are changing from large conference rooms to huddle rooms, break-out spaces, and smaller conference rooms which allow for a more rich collaboration experience.
