Email is for messaging, not collaboration
Email is no longer an effective way of collaborating as a team, it’s impractical and only contributes to an already overloaded inbox; likewise information that is only emailed between individuals then excludes the remainder of the team. Our team collaboration software removes the burden from your inbox and allows you to post relevant communication that can be found by everyone.
Keeping everyone in the loop
Multiple teams, fast growth and external resources can make clear communication and managing day-to-day activities problematic. Workspace activity feeds keep everyone up to date by providing a single summary of what’s happening. Discussions, questions and comments are displayed with quick links, making it easy to view and contribute to them.
Real-time online collaboration
Instant messenger is the perfect tool to ask questions, make arrangements or send updates. Don’t waste your time making phone calls, emailing or setting up meetings; get the information you want immediately.
Organised group feedback
Using the right team collaboration software makes it easy to request and collate group feedback. It provides a quick way of getting a general consensus for making group decisions. Simply create a poll, add multiple-choice answers and ask users to vote. The results are then conveniently displayed as a visual representation for quick reference.
Teams doing great things with Glasscubes
Reduce the time spent in meetings
Face-to-face meetings are time consuming, costly and often unnecessary. Glasscubes gives you an easier way to collaborate by sharing information instantly via the cloud. Everyone can contribute at a time that’s convenient to them, without stepping outside their office or even picking up a phone.
Announcements that are heard
A workspace announcement is a great way to make sure that members are aware of an important update. Unlike an email, your announcement will remain present in a user’s workspace until they acknowledge it, which means nobody has an excuse for not reading what you have to say.
Free conference calling
Set up and make conference calls with no booking, no billing and no fuss. Unlimited conference calls with up to fifty participants per call, for free! You just pay the cost of a local call, which is conveniently added to your regular phone bill.
Ask questions and share knowledge
Colleagues and external team members often have valuable experience or information but don’t have a way to share their knowledge easily. Glasscubes gives you a platform to combine and share team members' knowledge. Over time this will mature in to a valuable “go to” knowledge base that can be searched, making it ideal for employee training, teamwork and succession planning.
Cloud computing and related technologies are becoming increasingly attractive to smaller businesses, and it’s not hard to see why. This trend is simply following in the footsteps of all of the technological advances of the last few decades – designed to, among other things, help smaller businesses compete more effectively with large corporations. And it works.
The Dreaded Group Project – Why Group Work Is No Longer to be Feared
When we think back to our college days, there are a few memories that make most of us cringe. That early morning exam after a late night of partying.… that extra-long reading assignment over Easter break that you knew you weren’t going to read… These memories, and others, come readily to mind, but there is one memory that typically rears its head only when we’re reminded of it: the dreaded group project.
Most of us would really rather not have to have big meetings. However, they are sometimes hard to avoid when you need to discuss something critical, or you need to make an important decision. While meeting together is sometimes essential, it can also be an expensive and time-consuming business.
