Employees work hard to create, distribute and share compelling content across teams. However, an article in Business 2 Community noted that “91% of B2B marketers use the content they produce, but 65% of the content created goes unused.” This happens because information is scattered across repositories, which makes it increasingly difficult for internal teams to find the information they need to do their jobs. If companies don’t have a system in place for sorting content and extracting knowledge, valuable information can be wasted or lost. To solve this issue, companies need to implement a central location for sorting information and help to optimize existing content in the future.
The way we work today is experiencing a transformation -- moving from a traditional office environment to a virtual one. A large number of employees have started working remotely, using online tools to connect and collaborate. For companies that have adopted a flexible work environment, it's important to implement the most effective technology tools to maximize productivity. An article in the Boston Business Journal shared five tips to improve collaboration among remote workers. The article emphasized the importance of “investing in tools that work the way your teams do.” It’s crucial to not only choose tools that help teams collaborate, but are also easy teach, learn and use. The article also noted that it’s important to establish clear guidelines so teams understand what’s expected and can perform to their best ability.

Companies, both large and small are constantly collecting and generating more and more data, but don’t have sufficient solutions to management it. Its important to look ahead and put solutions in place to ensure company success.
