Top Tech Tools for Seamless Collaboration

Whether you’re six feet or 600 miles away from your closest colleague, investing in quality tech for frictionless employee communication is essential to productivity and collaboration efforts. And luckily, there are countless options available — ranging in quality and cost — to help keep your company and employees connected.

Save yourself some research time and start with our list of top tech tool favourites.

Communication Tech

For a reliable business communication platform with features for messaging, video, and phone, look to RingCentral. It offers the functionality of other communication apps — like Slack, Zoom, and email — under the roof of one convenient tool.

Additional features include:

● Integrations with other productivity tools like G Suite, Office 365, and more

● 24/7 support

● Up to 24-hour meeting duration

● Unlimited users

Video Conferencing Tech

You’re frozen. Can you hear me? I can hear you. Is my video on?

If this sounds like the start of every virtual meeting at your company, then it’s time to upgrade your tech ASAP.

Take unique departmental needs into consideration when researching video conferencing solutions. For sales teams who are constantly taking calls, use a complete video conferencing kit. Those who travel frequently will also find bluetooth headsets valuable.

For content creators in marketing, look to high-quality 4K webcams and ring lights to support live streaming and recording. Also, remember that employees are likely sharing their home office space with kids, pets, and partners throughout the day, so noise canceling headsets are a must.

On-site Security Tech

Even with less traffic in your brick-and-mortar store or office, security systems are recommended. With 4K ultra HD and colour night vision video, you’ll never miss a detail of what happens in-store when you’re away. You can even connect it to your smart devices and set up a live stream through Alexa or Google Assistant.

For those storing more confidential documents in a home office, consider adding home security cameras for an added layer of protection. You can also go with a product like the Google Nest Cam complete with a built-in speaker, mic, and motion sensor alerts you can receive on a mobile device when not at home.
