Consider the alternative: Users waste time toggling from one app to another (phone, chat, email, etc.), breaking the creative flow, slowing the overall process, and leaving them scrambling to put information into context — time and time again.An integrated platform that facilitates collaboration with workers both inside and outside the organization, on the other hand, breaks down workforce barriers that limit productivity, inhibit teamwork, and tamp down innovation.
