Over 3.2 million Americans work from home, and more than 25% of US employees work remotely at least part of the time. This number is only expected to climb, with more employers embracing the increased productivity, recruitment, and flexibility remote work offers.
Collaboration technology helps businesses achieve these benefits by:
- Enabling team collaboration and document sharing
- Providing face-to-face interactions via video conferencing
- Driving a connected, mobile workforce using the cloud
