Enhancing Internal and External Collaboration
Enterprise collaboration solutions have grown to become a pillar of business communications and collaboration. Today, intelligent Unified Communications platforms are spanning the silos of video, voice, presence, email, BYOD, mobility, and more. Interconnectivity amongst these technologies generates efficiencies and increases productivity, boosting innovation in companies around the globe.
The growth of the cloud has increased access to workplace collaboration tools, making them even more accessible without the management requirements of on-premises equipment. As part of our Enterprise Collaboration Solutions, our knowledgeable IT Consultants can integrate these business systems, processes, devices, and people – further enhancing productivity.
Many organizations are extending access to their enterprise collaboration systems to include external associates – such as partners, clients, and stakeholders. Enlarging this circle of connectivity can increase your competitive advantage, streamline processes, and drive innovation for both internal and external participants.

Unified Video and Voice Communications are two essential pillars of Yorktel’s Enterprise Collaboration Solutions. The ability to see and hear remote team members “face-to-face” empowers teams with more “real” interactions.
Thanks to this personal interface, team members are more engaged, less liable to multitask, and ultimately develop closer relationships with each other — keeping dispersed teams aligned, more agile, and more productive.

Huddle Rooms are the new favorite space for today’s workforce, who value the privacy afforded by a quiet enclosed area equipped with the latest enterprise collaboration systems. Their small footprint and freedom from distractions make Huddle Rooms an enticing bonus in attracting and retaining top talent.
Companies committed to success for the long haul must be intentional about creating places where employees can easily collaborate. And that means rethinking the conference room and creating spaces like huddle rooms.” (Source)
