Use Case: Communication Features

Scenario

Ever had to run a last minute meeting, and you’ve scrambled to get your team together? Someone’s out on the road, another is working from home, and no one seems to be on the same page as you.

Being able to effectively communicate with your team is important for any business to operate seamlessly, whether the team is partially or fully remote. When there’s too much digital clutter you may end up spending more time planning to speak with your team instead of accomplishing the tasks at hand.

Even when you do manage to communicate with your team, doesn’t it seem to be in separate apps or methods? You might have to message a group of managers in one chatroom, but send an invite to a department in a different app just to get a message delivered. Sure there’s always email, but not everyone checks that as frequently as you’d like. The truth is, communicating with your team shouldn’t require you to have ten different tabs open just to set up a meeting. All you’re doing is causing unnecessary delays.

So what can Desktop.com do to fix this?
