In this era of economy activity, a lot of industries are tend to use technology to their advantage. Because in a study it shows it can improve your company activities by 20 % to 30 %. In a competitive industry like today it seems like a must have. Business in this era use advanced tools such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence to boost its internal productivity and to make their client or potential finacial supporter more interested in the business you’re doing.

In Today’s workforce is more flexibel. That because sometimes company hired a remote freelancer to work alongside their employee. The result is a quick feedback, project that finished on time, and on budget. New collaborative tools are helping businesses not only capture that data but to analyze it and find patterns and results that can be acted upon.

So, What are the tools for Collaborative Technology ? This list is the most used tools in the industry.

  1. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

Virtual Reality is computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way by a person using special electronic equipment, such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors.

Sometimes or most of the time virtual reality is associated with video games or science fiction. Virtual Reality isn’t always games and science fiction. In the business industry, there are real enterprise applications for both virtual reality and augmented reality, and businesses are investing heavily in the new technologies.

Goldman Sachs Global Investment Research expects virtual reality and augmented reality to have an enterprise and public sector market size of $16.1 Billion by 2025 :

Virtual companies such as RealSense, AltspaceVR, and DORA all offer their immersive experience for the boardroom.

Augmented Reality is different from their counterpart. Augmented Reality is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information. For example, a customer want to buy a watch from their home, but they can’t try it on their wrist. They can use Augmented Reality as an alternative to see if its good fit for them or not. This technology allow bussiness and their customer to have a great collaboration, communication, and customization. In other field their start seeing the potential of the Augmented Reality. Such as architecture that coul allow the client to see their mockups in real time and not on a 2D screen.

  1. Data Collaboration

Analyzing multiple independent datasets to gain the combined insight. It produces the same output as stitching the datasets together, without the data privacy, trust and implementation barriers.

Data collaboration can be used internally to combine soloed datasets, and externally to work with other parties without sharing sensitive data. It enables users to co-operate with colleagues and partners in a trusted environment.

Data collaboration has become imperative because it allows companies to blend multiple sources of data to help teams reach meaningful conclusions. According to a Harvard Business Review study, 46% of organizations are now trying to blend between five and fourteen sources of data for analysis. Evaluating multiple sources of data helps companies to see the full picture, and to build an analytic dataset to answer specific questions about their business quickly.

  1. Collaboration with Aritficial Intellegence bot

A survey from Digital Pulse found that one of the biggest frustrations consumers have with online services is the inability to get immediate answers to simple questions with 40% of consumers citing this problem:

When a customer doesn’t get a fast response or service quickly a customer leave the site to search of a greater business they can trust.That where the A.I Bot come in.

Artificial intelligence bots interact with your prospective customers and immediately provide them with the information they need. Both Facebook and Microsoft made major investments in artificial intelligence bots — sometimes called chatbots — in 2016. Other industries, such as retail, are expected to follow as the technology evolves.

The Digital Pulse survey also found that 68% of respondents believed 24-hour availability was the top benefit of artificial intelligence bots. These bots give consumers more choices when it comes to accessing information — 18% of respondents avoid calling helplines because of the fear of encountering automated menus. The survey found that chatbots ranked as the 2nd most preferred channel of communication for consumers, behind face-to-face contact but ahead of email.

Businesses are using bots to quicken the pace of communication. If you missed a meeting, you could ask a bot for a summary instead of sending your co-worker an email. This enhances collaboration and saves businesses time and money.

So what is the postive thing about Collaborative technology ?

(+) Unleash the full power of enterprise talent

Effective collaboration technologies support not only how people work today, but how they will need to work in the future. Increasingly, companies are embracing new operating models, in which multiple organizations — the company, its vendors, its outsourcers, its partners and others — work together toward unified goals. Such an operating model will be successful only if people from the different organizations collaborate effectively.

 (+) Investing in the Future  

If an company is investing a Technology they one step ahead, That because they can get their work faster and more precise. So that why collaborative technology is mandatory in every industries if they dont want to lose to their rival companies.
