Business Collaboration Tools For Competitive Differentiation During COVID-19 Uncertainties
Parimal 19 Jun 2020

Software Development

With the world shifting more and more into the digital realm due to the current COVID-19 driven situation, the technology is being leveraged by businesses to connect the employees and teams along distributed and virtualized work locations. Traditional work models are no longer agile enough to function in the evolving coronavirus situation. Video conferencing and real-time collaboration platforms are widely used that provide the right tools and right information at the right time to the employees and customers, all the while balancing privacy and operational risks.

The new work models fostering human-machine interactions remotely are being adopted by businesses big and small for competitive differentiation and business value. The collaboration tools used by workforces facilitate a dynamic environment, unbounded by the physical distance or time zones.

Intelligent automation technologies

A broad range of intelligent automaton techniques has become available that are redefining how we get the work done. The digital workplace involves the use of emerging online meeting technologies, ranging from HR and payroll management to enterprise social media tools and core business applications. However, any collaboration tool must underpin the appropriate checks and controls to secure sensitive business data and organizational assets with appropriate management procedures and governance structures.

Virtual bars are offering wine tasting, live music, home brewing masterclasses, and a lot more to the customers. They can enjoy the beer and socialize with others safely from their home, without contacting anybody physically and hence effectively eliminating any chances of receiving viral infection. The customers are treated to a vibrant environment which is great for every occasion, be it the first date or an after work drink. You can have access to private space in the bar with your favorite music playing, and the bar dancers performing live for you. You can enjoy a lot of fun and feel like being outside with your friends even during the turbulent times of coronavirus. The virtual bar can be accessed from anywhere in the world and connects you with friends and strangers via video chat.

Virtual bars

Businesses across healthcare, IT, online learning, hospitality and other sectors are embracing the new work from home culture at a rapid pace. Virtual bar experiences such as BrewDog are being created by top alcohol brands as a way to bring people together and socialize amidst COVID-19 lockdown and regulated physical distancing measures. Online bars provide a platform to the struggling and out-of-work hospitality pros to do what they love doing – serving the customers their favorite drink, safely and remotely. Bartenders can work at the virtual bars like they used to do on a physical one. They can host a virtual happy hour for the customers who can share their stories on Instagram Live as well. When the restrictions are loosened and one visits a physical bar, they are like to miss their virtual bar experience, and may rather prefer it over visiting a bra physically as it saves time and fatigue of going a bar.

Stay fit and inspired

When it comes to fitness, online yoga classes with live streaming videos for every level ensure that you stay fit and inspired for your day’s work. Thanks to the development in video streaming technology, yoga practitioners are now shifting their yoga studio to digital classes. They can stand upside down in the privacy of their own homes. You can practice yoga at your own convenient time and space, without arriving at a studio at a fixed time. You need to worry about missing office events due to yoga classes, and can also retain your practice session. When you are traveling, you can just view your yoga video on your mobile or laptop, and start practicing in your hotel room. You can also grow your practice in the comfort of your home.

Many of the coronavirus-era programs are focused on wellness. Mindfulness meditation webinars deserve special mention here. Mindfulness brings employees together and encourages them to trust and support one-another. A daily dose of mindfulness boosts attention and encourages employees to perform better. Mindfulness business training webinars are being adopted by the companies as part of their organizational culture to extoll its benefits in enhancing the employees’ motivation, satisfaction level and productivity.

Let your employees do the work the way they prefer

Your organizational culture drives both your success and failure. In the emerging fluid situation due to COVID-19, the businesses that do not leverage the collaboration techniques are bound to leg behind. The key is to understand how your employees prefer to work and devise a change management plan that can help you stay ahead in the game.
