The applications, systems and tools used in these communications are often isolated from each other. Not only does this fact lead to an enormous workload for communicators trying to keep all channels up-to-date and informed, it also means that employees must invest a lot of time into searching for single pieces of information which they need for fulfilling their tasks.
The resulting loads of objectives, tasks, information repositories and applications threaten to drown any information worker, making it almost impossible for them to find, process and distribute the information necessary for team members, external contacts and the organization as a whole in order to work efficiently and successfully.
Modern collaboration solutions address these diverse challenges of our information-centered age. They facilitate and accelerate cooperation between different inhouse departments and across entire enterprises as well as the distribution of information towards external target groups like partners, media or the general public.
"Being left completely to our own devices, it would have been almost impossible to get such an ambitious project like the citizen portal AixPort up and running. In the close and professional cooperation with our project partners, together we were able to create a comprehensive, successful and state-of-the-art solution.“
Peter Niehues, Project Manager at regio iT aachen
