Is your company investing in technology to make you feel more productive?

When asked whether their company was investing in tools that made them feel more productive, almost two-thirds of the respondents to the survey for our Workplace Productivity and Communications Technology Report indicated that they indeed felt that way.

This is a bit of a conundrum.  On the one hand, essentially two-thirds of the respondents felt that their companies were making investments.  But a whopping one-third did not agree.  Clearly, these survey respondents are not happy campers, and they realize that their company could do more to make them feel (and actually be) more productive.  

We see this as a clear call for companies to invest - NOW - in better communications technology to address today's complex and multi-faceted communications environment to support integrated communications including telephony, email, texting, on-line collaboration.

Comments from the survey:
  • "I would like my organisation to embrace more adhoc and video conferencing solutions."
  • "The mode of communication needs to be matched to the task. E.g. Chat is good for quick answers, but not good for complex conversations."
