Collaborative Communications: Setting the Foundation for Digital Transformation

As today's competitive business environments push workforces into overdrive, many enterprises are seeking ways of streamlining workflows while optimizing productivity, business agility, and speed. For many organizations, this means embarking on digital transformation initiatives and outfitting the workforce with collaboration tools to help employees get the job done.

In this webinar, Zeus Kerravala, principal at ZK Research, will discuss trends and recent research in this area, sharing findings that include:

  • 80% of workers feel team messaging and collaboration increases productivity and work efficiency
  • 83% feel traditional UC integrated into office productivity tools like Microsoft Office and Google G Suite would be valuable
  • 73% are very interested in having all their communications tools on one platform

Jason Kasch, CIO of Structural Group, will join the conversation, sharing his enterprise's digital transformation story and discussing pain points it addressed along the way. Structural Group recognized the need to deploy flexible, mobile-first collaboration and communications solutions in order to enhance customer engagement and productivity for its distributed mobile workforce, including implementation of user-friendly cloud business communications. Jason will share how employees across the company's 22 locations have become more collaborative and productive than ever before.
