Team Collaboration Speeds Up Enterprise Outcomes

Mobile messaging—what we refer to as team collaboration—is poised to challenge email as the top communication method in the workplace.

In the digital era's focus on outcomes, email is no longer equipped to handle the immediate needs of the enterprise. Buyers want to be able to communicate quickly for conducting a transaction and at the same time, managers and their team must be able to take action. Team collaboration enables both aspects of customer journeys and promotes more efficient experiences.

Additionally, given the rise of conversational AI, we expect to see team collaboration grow quickly as a category.

Your Guide to Modern Communications and Collaboration

At the heart of the digital workplace is how people communicate with each other and how they work together to solve business problems. Unified communications and collaboration (UCC) is a market and set of technologies that has emerged from unified communications (UC) to incorporate real-time and asynchronous collaboration capabilities into one suite.

The UCC market is starting to make people a priority and putting them at the center of the UCC, which Aragon calls people-centric collaboration— at its core, it means being able to seamlessly switch to the right method of interacting with others.

This eBook will delve into the modern UCC platform and the key components of people-centric collaboration.
