The success of a business does not rely solely on the operations of just one department. Each team is paramount and essential for driving success, whether that success is revenue, growth, awareness, or outperforming competition. Each team has its own dedicated skills and expertise, and it’s these levels of knowledge that collectively make your business stand out and maintain that success. And it’s when these teams come together and work as one with the core goal of overall success that your company will see that return on investment from hiring these talented individuals.
In a time when technology allows us to connect at all times from practically any device, it’s crucial that your business operations mimic those behaviors that we know of as consumers. Since there’s no “I” in team, your departments need the tools and resources that allow them to work together and collaborate as easily and efficiently as possible. Luckily, within the Zoho CRM suite of applications, there are many products that your teams can integrate into their processes that will make their daily routines easier, but it will contribute to faster projects, more collaboration, and ultimately, happier customers as a result of this streamline. Here are just a few collaboration applications that will simplify your teams’ processes.
The cloud has been one of the best introductions into our work model, as it encourages collaboration in real-time without the need of waiting on one specific individual to share or upload. Zoho WorkDrive uses this technology to bring teams together so they can work on projects together in real-time. Your team members can look at and work on Zoho Writer documents, Zoho Sheet data, and Zoho Show presentations together so that everyone can arrive at deadlines faster and easier. Watch your teammates work in real-time and learn from their own thought processes, share commentary, ask questions, and incorporate design that will bring your ideas to life. You can skip the worries around version control and waiting on stakeholders to add their contributions, make revisions, or add commentary. Bring your business into the next level of collaboration with this easy-to-use and intuitive platform.
Whether your company is in-person, spread across offices all over the world, or even remote, you might find the communication is often sacrificed because of any kind of divide. With our digital capabilities, however, we can now bridge any silo that was once there and connect teams in ways in which they can communicate more openly and share crucial data that might help improve operations. Zoho Flow is an application that can connect other applications that teams are already working with so that information and data can essentially talk with one another and update information accordingly so that all teams are using the same knowledge. With automation capabilities, you can even eliminate steps in processes that might be duplicative or those that don’t need an expert’s hand in. Your teams can come together more naturally with Zoho Flow so that you can effectively eliminate the possibility of overlap.
Whether you’re a new business or a veteran, you need to establish a universal system in which all departments are using the same productivity tools. Whether your teams are primarily internal communicators or more external ones, all departments should be using the same tools to operate their duties. Not only does this unify your company, but consistency and continuity will help bridge any miscommunication or disruption in processes. Zoho Workplace is a tool that does all of this for you in an intuitive way. From email and calendar management to documentation creation and storage to connectivity, Zoho Workplace is the consistent productivity software that will take your workplace to the next level. Access Zoho Workplace from any device at any time, so your teams in different zip codes, those on vacation, or those just running errands on the weekend can access their projects at any time they need to.
It’s no secret that we’re moving faster than ever before – as consumers ourselves, we’ve grown accustomed to this speed, so it’s essential that your business can match this speed to meet you customers’ expectations and beyond. Because of this increased speed and innovation, your teams are working on more projects than ever before, and they need to relay their ideas, progress, and communication as quickly as possible. Phone calls, meetings, and emails no longer cut it for optimum collaboration, and Zoho Connect can expedite this communication for your teams. Get updates with quick chat and communication features, share files and important links for updates, and simply find ways to bring your projects to the finish line faster and more efficiently. This tool can also integrate with tons of other applications with your Zoho CRM suite of products so that you won’t miss a beat with any other project in motion.
Because we’re all moving at the speed of light, we no longer have the luxury of sharing availability with one another via email. Zoho Calendar allows your teams to transparently see when you’re available so they can quickly put time on your calendar to collaborate, update, or share project progress. Add in meeting details, locations, other attendees, and even meeting details if you’re meeting off-site or virtually. Not only does this save time, but Zoho Calendar is intended to respect everyone’s busy schedules and allows for optimum collaboration and teamwork.
A business simply cannot function without the full cooperation and collaboration from all of its teams. Everyone is in this together for the common goal of success for your company, and you can help them achieve this universal goal with these Zoho CRM collaboration products. Not only will these tools save your team members time and energy, but the cross-team collaboration will be increased, and your end product, as a result, will be even better. In turn, this then means higher customer satisfaction rates, greater returns, and even stronger brand loyalty and affinity – all due to team collaboration.
