Workplace Communication is vastly different than it was years ago – let alone, decades. The days of faxes and paper memos are long over. Today, technologically connected office spaces are central to how we function.
There’s almost always constant feedback and availability, and as such office communication technology has been both applauded and frowned upon. Either way, you perceive it, when used correctly, it’s an essential part of effective communication within the workplace.
We hope you’ll read on as iStratus explores how it brings you into a technological world and improves communication today, we certainly hope it is something iStratus will continue to evolve for the future.
Communication Technology: The Face of Change
In days gone by, when employees departed the office, they were no longer connected to the business for a certain period of time. Nowadays, however, thanks to communication technology our location is irrelevant and connectivity have fundamentally changed on demand.
Like all modern-day technology, iStratus aims to improve communication, regardless of the distance between employers, employees, or workplaces.
Communication across distances, for the immediate formulation of new ideas, document editing, and file-sharing abilities, effectively allows businesses to utilize new digital solutions in the workplace. The opportunities provided by technology are endless, with the rise of instant messaging and video conferencing; we can “drop” files for instantaneous delivery and collaboration.
Furthermore, flexibility is spawned by this connectivity as people now work from home.
These changes have no doubt had an impact on how communication at work functions, for better or worse, iStratus aims to increase effective workplace communication, with ease.
Connecting Employees Globally
Useful communication is paramount to the success of organizations. No matter how workplace communication is executed, there is a key element to effective communication regardless of the medium.
With iStratus the clarity of the content is everything. We provide an organizational tool for efficiency, rather than wasting time communicating unnecessary information.
Connecting people regardless of the location immediately also decreases the chances of miscommunication that could become costly in terms of money and time.
Keeping Conversations = Clear Team Objectives
Chat logs, Checklists, or To Do’s that can be referenced at later dates provide meaningful documentation to operational teams. With notes from meetings, teams can scroll up to have direct access to the content addressed to meet objectives within the workplace, from perhaps days before.
The key is:
- Segmenting information into categories so that conversations or content doesn’t become buried.
- Maintaining distinct guidelines for discussion when using these tools.
Managing Projects, Communicating with Simplicity
Depending on how you prefer to utilize iStratus, it can become a central hub of project activity that everyone can reference from wherever they may be.
iStratus ensures it easier than ever to:
- Track projects.
- Overview deadlines or what is or coming up on the agenda in the future.
- Document any important comments and identified issues, effortlessly accessible in one place.
iStratus is a functional tool to meet the demands of your company or job requirements.
Effective communication is central. Any project will feel inefficient if the process and flow of objectives are not established and communicated clearly and simply with your team.
Communication technology like ours also improves workplace productivity by simplifying time-consuming tasks. For example, using iStratus for document management/storage replaces the need for manual file retrieval, data entry, or filing.
The key to productivity is to know when and how technology should be used and when.
Bottom line: Having immediate access to mass amounts of data in the cloud on-demand means we can be more productive, than ever before as a functioning society for the human race.
“Time Track” – Stay Organized
For business management, the seamlessness of online productivity, time tracking, and collaboration options available are invaluable.
iStratus allows organizations to communicate progress, projects, and the time allotted for task completion.
If employees are not on track, it becomes immediately apparent. Thus, the opportunity arises for a timely solution-based approach – and there will be no more surprises following project completion, as every piece along the way has already been collected, recorded, and addressed with efficiency and collaboration.
“Business success requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you’re not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were.”
~ David Rockefeller
