Today’s changing global workforce has created a new way to work. Workers, especially millennials, are no longer keen on spending years pursuing long careers in one organization, nor do they want the traditional constrictions of a 9-5 job.

In the same vein, companies that are looking to cut back on the expense of providing workspace for their employees have created Flexible Work Option programs so that employees can work from anywhere, anytime, and have the flexibility for a work/life balance they may otherwise not have.
Such a workforce calls for technological solutions that facilitate mobility, teamwork, and collaboration.
Collaboration tools provide groups of workers a platform to communicate, coordinate, and accomplish their projects and objectives.
