Building rapport in a remote world

As teams become more distributed, communication gets more complicated. Here’s where we dig into the latest conferencing innovations and collaboration strategies to help you get the most from your mobile team.

Supporting the future of collaboration

Last week we looked at some strategies for organizing effective meetings for members of distributed and international teams. In light of a recent study from Ovum and join.me by LogMeIn that surveyed nearly 4,000 professionals about how they collaborate, it looks like we aren’t the only ones with meetings on our minds.

According to a recent MobileMarketing article by Tim Maytom, the future of messaging has already arrived, and it’s all about over-the-top (OTT) apps.
