The Benefits of Global Digital Collaboration

The digital era is not pushing us apart, but rather pulling us closer together. We experience this to some degree every day. We communicate quickly and easily with friends and family on the other side of the globe. We purchase needed items in an instant and even receive personalized responses from our favorite brands. On the personal level, the digital age is beginning to feel more engaging than in-person engagement, in many ways.

In the context of business, however, and especially with the advent of remote work, going digital can feel distancing. Remote work is increasingly popular, and much of our collaboration on projects occurs in a digital space. Some businesses are still digging their heels in against the transition. In the gestalt, however, this approach to collaboration will only benefit companies as business continues to evolve in the digital space.

How will global companies benefit as we complete the transition into a wholly digital way of doing business? Let’s take a look.

Less Travel

Yes, granted. Many executives may have enjoyed the perk of travel to visit clients or international branches. From the business office’s perspective, however, travel has always been a stress on the coffers. Extensive travel, too, may provide face-to-face interactions that are essential to doing good business and collaborating, but can also stress employees as well. With the expansive features and viability of video conference tools today, businesses can get the benefits of those in-person interactions without the overhead and strain of travel.
