Digital is an increasingly important part of our daily lives. Its use within companies is ubiquitous, and the digital workplace is just another chapter in this story.
The adoption of digital in processes, tools and at the heart of the company’s business has an immediate impact on the way organizations and employees work. More than ever, it appears that digital transformation is an essential step for any economic player wishing to ensure its sustainability and remain competitive.
The digital workplace, which has only recently appeared on the collaborative landscape, offers everyone a virtual office, synonymous with the ability to work from anywhere and on all types of digital media, with flexibility and agility.
The digital workplace: a fully digital work environment
In a workplace shaken up as of late by so many recent innovations, the reality behind the term digital workplace is perfectly tangible because it’s—no more and no less—a digital version of your physical work environment.
Just like in an office where you have all your files and tools at hand, digital workplace solutions provide a workspace that brings together all the tools, applications and documents you need every day to complete your assignments.
You’ll find everything you need to:
- share and store documents
- monitor and coordinate projects
- work on office documents (alone or with others)
- communicate via instant messaging
- exchange in videoconference
- interface with tens / hundreds of third-party collaborative tools
The digital workplace allows employees to work wherever they are. This is a definite asset, while teleworking has acquired in recent months the status of a “valid,” efficient way of working and seems destined to become more widespread / sustainable.
So, let’s look at the main digital workplace solutions on the market that will allow you to work more collaboratively, more efficiently, and with more agility.
