Benefits of Real-Time Collaboration

  • Clear Communication, Less Confusion – Because the diagram is shared everyone can see the changes made by each other in real-time. This visual communication is very powerful because it leaves little room for confusion. As anyone can instantly spot the modifications they can easily object to changes they don’t like, it leads to much better communication and interaction in meetings.
  • Saves Time – Real-time collaboration saves your time in so many different ways. You can cut down the time spent on meetings because of visual communication. No need to go back and forth to meet clients because most things can be done online in a much more efficient manner. You can even save time spend on email communications because no need to have long email conversations, just share a diagram and work on it in real-time.
  • Increase Productivity – It helps people working from home and working from remote locations to be more productive. Since everything is done online its just a matter of connecting to the Internet or the Intranet.
  • Saves Money – A combination of all the factors mentioned above lead to a considerable amount of savings. Increased productivity is saved time and money.
  • It’s fun – Seriously, you will love it once you try it. There is something addictive about drawing and modifying a diagram together. We do this in our meetings everyday and absolutely love it.
