VIPole for teamwork: techniques and tricks

vipole for teamwork

Imagine a large estate that welcomes dozens of guests. The building has many rooms, some are hidden and only the owner knows how to get there and how to open the door. In one room folks play bridge, the other room is a dancing hall, the third room is for political and philosophical debates, a small room gives privacy for the conversation of the two. This is a natural way of human communication. When you choose one of VIPole solutions for business, you become an owner of a virtual estate, and you create rooms and invite people. Confidential conversations never leave the borders of the estate.

The connected world has given us all the opportunities that we could never imagine before, but as we can be more effective now, we have to show the best of what we can do every day. Communication habits have changed significantly throughout the past decade, and internet communication has become a heavy and sometimes the dominating part of daily interactions. Chats, blogs, social media, messengers – it’s now common to participate in a group chat, that connects the parents of the classmates, in a group chat of your foreign language course or of your local volleyball team. The workplace communications tend to be more conservative, depending on the field. Tech companies and news organizations are among the pioneers who are the first to discover the convenience of messengers for business.

Arrange chat rooms and invite your people

brainstorming

«We are currently developing a new website for our company, and the project involves me as the marketing director, marketing managers, designers and developers of course. We’ve hired a talented freelance designer to create data visualizations, and this girl is in several time zones away from us. However, the distance does not affect her efficiency. I created an encrypted group chat in VIPole for everyone involved in the project and she actively participates in all discussions; we exchange the screenshots of the design, discuss them and arrange weekly brainstorms in a video chat. VIPole is handy, because everything we need  is in one app. »

James F., Marketing director

The rhythm of life of modern companies requires appropriate tools. Business communication should be fast, easy, multiplatform and protected from outsiders. Internal conversations of companies evolved into a set of short messages that require prompt reaction. A communication tool that minimizes rituals in communication and enhances effectiveness is what any team needs. Prefaces are irrelevant when you need just to clarify details. Group chats in VIPole allow to arrange convenient simultaneous work in teams. The employees are not tied to departments, they are tied to projects, which makes communication goal-oriented.

The chats are flexible and can be initiated or wiped away forever anytime. The optimization of communication around projects makes the performance of the whole team smarter. Communication in group chats is generally less formal than traditional communication via e-mail and all team members always feel involved in the projects that they participate in.

The messengers have transformed not only the form of communication; they changed the style and the way of perceiving. They became the technology that is in tune with the spirit of the digital age and the ways of creating and processing information, to which we are accustomed today. Instant messaging allows you to get immediate feedback on every current issue and you may contribute to the discussion anytime you come up with a bright idea.

Make all your calls private

«I especially appreciate multiuser videochats in VIPole, as I am constantly in touch with my team even when I am off the office. Once I was abroad on a business trip and my deputy caught a flu, leaving an unexperienced intern responsible for all the affairs of our department. All of sudden a potential client got in touch with our intern with an urgent order that might become fruitful. Of course, I had to chair the conversation. I assembled a conference in VIPole with the customer, the deputy who worked from home and the intern. We got the deal».

Alexander R., Senior relationship manager

«An independent audit company is assessing the effectiveness of our business now and they have the access to our workflows and contracts. We are always in touch and we need a secure channel to exchange sensitive documents and discuss the details. Initially our company used VIPole for inner conversations only, but now the auditors have switched to VIPole as well.
