Companies who understand the value of truly human communications, in concert with data, are making it easier and more fun for teams to build things together. They are tapping innovation everywhere, acting on “spurts” of insight, and doing so in such an efficient way that they can get ten times more done during a work day than ever before so they can also live their lives both inside and outside the workplace.
By providing teams with applications they actually like, applications that are social, mobile, visual, intuitive and fun, these emerging companies who are investing in ensuring their people are happy, productive, competitive outside, and collaborative inside.
These companies are embedding the ability to talk with a colleague, share screens, and simply “touch” to join a video conference inside the applications that already drive their business.

Imagine employees working throughout the day – regardless of where they are – on a browser-based communications platform enabled with messaging and social messaging applications that eliminate the need for old-fashioned desktop phones or even new-fashioned unified communication software that has to be deployed and maintained by IT.

Ultimately, the enterprise is able to see how individuals and teams are connecting with each other and how their communications behaviors are driving outcomes, and can then continually improve the “alchemy” of bonding business process and workflow with human communications.
