The Future of Collaboration: Embedded Collaboration

Despite living and working through the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic for the past 2 years, employers are continually having to adjust to meet the challenges of working from home. And so, to improve workplace collaboration, communication, and productivity for remote teams the search is on for newer and better productivity software.

Here are 3 reasons why employers should consider implementing embedded collaboration into their organizations:

1. Collaboration that scales across applications, departments, and organizations:

The collaboration challenges presented by COVID-19 combined with the pressures of workplace digitalization have led to a host of factors that need to be solved; excessive context switching, limited connectivity across all domains, non-transparent processes, lack of organizational telemetry, and so on. The solutions that exist in the market today, are both fragmented and siloed.

However, TRIYO works across silos, embedding collaboration between applications to unify multiple workstreams at scale.

2. Communication That’s Structured and Transparent:

According to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, one of the largest potential disadvantages facing companies with dedicated work from home policies is the difficulty of maintaining contact and open communication with staff.

Imagine communicating on tasks within the application or file where the work needs to be done, by embedding comments or instructions, setting deadlines, reminders, creating teams, assigning roles, monitoring progress and approvals.

By embedding collaboration in the tools that are used to do the actual work, TRIYO integrates communication within the task itself. This in turn creates structure and transparency with no behavioural change from your end.

3. Maximum Productivity with minimal disruptions and context switching:

Research suggests that on average, it takes 16 minutes to re-focus on a task after switching context. Teams can certainly work better and more efficiently when there’s less context switching through embedded collaboration.

What if you could access all the communication, files, and associated applications related to a task or project in one place?  Well, that would significantly reduce the amount of time taken to toggle between emails, chats, various software applications, and files to figure out what needs to be done, who needs to do it, what is the latest file version, and when is it due before the task was even undertaken.

With products such as TRIYO that embed collaboration directly into workplace toolkits, namely MS Teams, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, using APIs, to enable extraction of work and user telemetric data, teams not only improve their productivity, managers can also make well-informed, data-driven decisions that increase the organization’s efficiency and profitability as a whole.
