As many of us have now become more used to the idea of working from home I wanted to take some time to go over some of the many benefits utilizing Team on the run remotely can provide. At it’s heart, team on the run is a communication solution designed to be flexible and built to work under a multitude of circumstances. Today I will be going over a few key ways to take advantage of the team on the run application while working remotely.
You can see more here where I have outlined the benefits of using Push-to-Talk (PTT) calls instead of video conferencing software to have more efficient group meetings. On top of meetings, team on the run PTT offers up a unique way to categorize departments in your organization in the form of “channels.” These channels are a quick and easy way to allow your team members to have instant meetings by just hopping into a respective channel when a situation arises where it’s more relevant to discuss verbally than through messaging. This allows users to collaborate more quickly when away from the office and since team on the run offers a multitude of feature rich communication avenues, you can go straight from having a messaging conversation with a group to a PTT Channel with just one-click, giving you the feel of walking up to someone’s desk and heading into the conference room to meet on topics.
Just because the office may not be an option currently does not mean you will not have access to all your colleagues. With our corporate directory you will have the power to reach out to any employee and department needed with precision and ease, just like in person. You can even search by department and click on a person’s “details” to make sure you have exactly the person you need to speak to in a timely fashion. A lot of times when you work from home you lose a % of simplicity but with team on the run we strive to keep that level of simplicity wherever you are.
