The team at the center of corporate digital transformation
The digital transformation means that companies’ need to collaborate has grown exponentially. To successfully synchronize, teams are looking for the right solutions to the issues this brings about: Remote work, shared time, teams of varying sizes, collective decision-making, and more.
Although teams already have communication tools, there was nothing to facilitate teamwork. Klaxoon undergirds one of the main pillars of collaboration by putting people back at the center of processes.
