Key business drivers for collaboration are changing…..

Specifically, within SMBs and midmarket businesses, future collaboration adoption efforts will be driven by demands for decision agility, speed of innovation, customer intimacy and faster time to market.

Early SMBs & midmarket collaboration solution users tell Techaisle that they invested in these solutions because a lack of teamwork was impacting productivity. While the creation of a central information repository was the most important business driver for collaboration solutions adoption to the “first wave” of users, it is not so for the new buyers. New adopters are saying that they are having difficulty coordinating meetings (as a consequence of increased employee mobility, dispersed team members, ad hoc scheduling), and that they need to address slow decision-making within their organizations.
…and Video-enabled collaboration is the new imperative of innovative, high growth businesses

A global Techaisle survey (commissioned by Cisco) of 1269 SMBs and midmarket businesses found that irrespective of the size of business, video-enabled collaboration is necessary for business agility – decision agility, innovation agility.

The survey found that for high-growth, innovative businesses, effective, efficient collaboration is in their organizational DNA and video-enabled collaboration solution is integral to success driving decision agility, participant trust because it leads to faster decision making, improved employee productivity, a more personal interaction experience and better teamwork.
