One platform, many processes

Find a solution, or your team will

CIOs and IT Managers know they need to respond to the team’s growing need to collaborate. If the IT Department doesn’t find a solution, the team will.

A standard, approved and shared service

External collaboration needs to be viewed as any other solution used by the IT Department. A single, standard service deployed across the organisation.

Meeting the needs of every department

External collaboration comes in many, unstructured forms - flexible enough to meet the needs of every department, whilst providing oversight for IT to monitor usage and cross-charge appropriately.
