Organisations in the supply chain - meaning nearly all organisations these days - are realising that collaboration is inevitable in these times. Practically every organisation is somehow part of a value chain, allowing online collaboration with partners to cut costs.

Collaboration being inevitable in these fast times is something nearly all managers realise. Nearly all organisations act in one or several chains and therefore enter into partnerships: for some because it happens to be convenient, for others because it is strategic and therefore structured. Both cases entail frequent online cooperating. There is a great term for this: online collaboration.
Have you noticed that employees sometimes spend more time travelling to and from a meeting than they do in the actual meeting itself? That’s a shame, because they could have accomplished a lot of work during that time they wasted on travelling. Have you ever thought about video conferencing? It not only saves you a lot of time, it also delivers significant savings in travel expenses.
To many organisations videoconferences offer an excellent opportunity to hold meetings at a distance and to collaborate with team members, partners or clients. For a conference involving video you no longer need to leave the door or be present at a set location: via your laptop or tablet you can participate from any desired location with an internet connection. A meeting at a distance is most effective when both image and sound are high quality.
