From smoke signals and carrier pigeons to morse code and the telegram, and then the telephone, email and SMS, the evolution of how humans communicate is written in the annals of history.
Since the dawn of time, communication and collaboration have sat at the heart of everything humans do. And although technology has advanced and the means in which we share voice and information has evolved, the reasons for, and the goals of remain the same. Simply put, we rely on communication and collaboration to get things done.
Modern business has experienced some of the most significant forced change in recent memory this past year, and as we look forward into the unknown, the need to empower a modern workplace approach to business has never been more important.
