Internal communications technology inside many small businesses is limited to old-fashioned email, which is unfortunate because of the wide variety of more modern digital communications tools. Over reliance on legacy communication systems can drain productivity and feel out of sync to tech-savvy workers. They also tend to foster bureaucracy and top-down management. Small businesses need simple, flexible multimedia communications tools that are more in line with how employees receive information at home. The best communications platforms will align with how employees are used to communicating already, making them intuitive and relevant.
- With so many professionals growing up to be tech-savvy, building communication tools for the business place is now becoming very important.
- Despite the technological breakthroughs in communication for businesses, many still hang onto legacy, archaic communication systems.
- Companies are beginning to realize that modern day communication is connection oriented and not top-down bureaucratic styles as in conventional communication tools.
