What is Collaboration Tools Software?
Collaboration software is designed to help groups work collectively on projects or on-going tasks. These apps allow for instant electronic communication and the centralization of group data such as client information, files, images and other interactive media. Collaboration software keeps decentralized team members in constant contact, removing the need for proximity in order to effectively share and collaborate on work and remain updated on issues.
Collaboration tools are action-oriented and aim to unite teams and solve problems. These applications enable teams to communicate in real time, keep track of tasks, give feedback and monitor progress and success. They are designed to increase efficiency and improve communication. Most applications can also be used to generate reports based on key performance metrics and identify areas where collaboration may need to be improved.
Various forms of electronic communication are facilitated by collaboration tools, these include video demoing, web conferencing, VoIPs, email, instant messaging, text chat, and social networking. Aside from these real time communication tools, other electronic methods of communication enabled by these apps include wikis, knowledge bases, bookmarks, discussion boards, image galleries, status boards, activity feeds, blogs, crowd rating and voting, note leaving and commenting.
Collaboration tools are often used to facilitate project management goals such as meeting deadlines, problem solving, assigning tasks and organizing meetings. This is achieved through scheduling software, task management tools and feedback tools. User profiles are another common feature of collaboration software. Many offer searchable databases that provide information on both clients and co-workers such as interaction history, task progress and personal data.
Collaboration tools often integrate with project management software and are used by contractors, clients, employees, managers and project teams alike. Teams of all sizes can benefit from these tools. They are particularly useful to large and dispersed teams, reducing costs associated with travel or the manual processing of content to share.
