As we covered in the first post of our three-part blog series related to a recent digital workplace research report, the majority of workers today spend at least an hour a day toggling between different communications apps – a serious drain on productivity that is only threatening to get worse.
What’s the solution to this workplace chaos?
One Enterprise Communication Solution
The sheer number of communications apps is at the heart of the issue. Half of workers today use more than four communications apps, so it’s no surprise they’re feeling overwhelmed. According to the majority of workers, the solution is a single platform that unifies all communications capabilities.
A single platform provides workers with a centralized hub for collaboration and communication, eliminating the need for toggling between separate apps. But that’s not the only reason workers want one platform to rule them all.
A Single Cloud Communications Platform Solves Workplace Chaos
The benefits of a unified communications approach are myriad, but a few in particular are most appealing to workers. Workers believe a single cloud communications platform enhances efficiency, improves productivity, and reduces stress. That translates to more effective and satisfied employees.
Top Benefits of a Unified Communications Approach
