Collaboration is an essential part of any successful business. Teams who work together effectively tend to come up with better solutions faster than employees who work alone. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to make collaboration happen, especially when employees are spread out between different offices and even working remotely from home.

The good news is that there are a number of collaboration tools that can make the process easier. Here are some of them:

Notion

Notion is a fantastic team management software that is perfect for small teams who need to maintain contact so that they share important files, discuss ongoing projects and keep a record of new ideas and inspirations. It can even be used as a to-do list for individual users.

Evernote Business

Evernote Business enables employees to take important notes at meeting and events and then share them with other members of the team, who can collaborate by adding their own ideas too. It is, perhaps, best used by creative teams who need to share ideas in real-time.

Testing Management Tools

Testing management tools which allow multiple users to access the same data, reports, and resources, are perfect for tech businesses who need to test software quickly so that it can be brought to market before the competition catches up. The more individuals able to work on the project, and the easier it is for updates to be distributed to all, the smoother things will go.

Video Conferencing Apps

Video conferencing apps like Skype can be used by businesses of all shapes and sizes to connect employees all over the world at the click of a button, They are particularly useful for big multinational companies with offices all over the globe and companies who use remote workers, but they are a handy tool for anyone.

Slack

Slack is quite possibly the biggest and best team communication tools available right now. It utilizes messaging app technology to allow teams to communicate effectively in real-time, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that it can also be used to share documents via Google Drive or Dropbox, for greater levels of collaboration, and best of all, cleaner inboxes.

Deekit

Online whiteboards are even better than their real world counterparts, and Deekit is currently one of the best. It is particularly good for sharing complex ideas with lots of people at once. You can use tools for planning, templates for laying information out, create technical documents and much more besides.

Google Drive

Google Drive is perhaps a simple tool, but it is also one of the most effective for sharing documents between individuals, and it is one of the cheapest too. You can store countless documents on there in an instant and restrict access to only the people you want to see them, which means that you don’t have to worry about scanning documents, sending emails or visiting colleagues when you have better things to do.

Equipped with the right tools, you should have no problem increasing the levels of collaboration between your teams, and doing so in the most productive way possible.
