Managing a major business project is one of the most overwhelming tasks in the working world. In your company, no doubt you've found yourself overly stressed trying to keep all the plates spinning for a successful project outcome. The problem is that with so many departments, employees and project layers to manage, it's easy for something to go wrong.
You may already have experienced nightmares about losing control of all the project details, especially if still using outdated communications equipment. Using landline phones, for instance, can't connect you on a universal level to communicate with employees during project phases.
Unified communications technology changes this, so you can collaborate on the go to stay in the competitive game.
Increase Mobility Inexpensively
As WallStreet.com notes, using unified communications technologies like VoIP and similar hosted phone systems reduces travel expenses exponentially. Consider how much it costs in gas and time to have all of your employees constantly driving to the office for meetings.
Some of your workers may live far away and have to travel often for business events. Or, you might allow others to work from home.
Using a unified communications solution lets your staff easily call in for digital teleconferencing for meaningful, real-time collaboration — from anywhere. And despite being long distance, the call won't cost a fortune like it would through an ordinary landline service.
Enhance Your Productivity
With unified communications, you can establish clear milestones that each team needs to meet, so there are no surprises during a project's final deadline.
Since you can call in from anywhere for collaborations, productivity will go through the roof. A vital team member is perhaps visiting another country and can still call in to pass on their valuable input.
Managing Smaller Project Components
With a large project, it's easy to only see the big picture and overlook some of the minor components needing more discussion. With a unified communications system, you can teleconference as long as it's needed to discuss smaller details — and access relevant data at your fingertips. Unified communications platforms make it easier to manage all aspects of your project and respond to problems with quick adjustments.
Bringing More Accountability to a Project
Using a unified way to communicate helps bring accountability to everyone working on a project. Since you'll be able to contact everyone involved and discuss their roles, you're basically delivering better management overall. Increased communication eliminates making assumptions about what everyone is doing and gives you a heads-up on team attitudes and work performance.
Most importantly, improved communication guarantees happier customers, who rely on superior teamwork from your staff.
