Email is great for communication, but not collaboration…

Leave a comment


Historically email has been the easiest way to make contact in any business relationship – short, conversations with your project team members, or quick messages to people you’re communicating with across different locations.

Email is an effective means for communication, but when it comes to collaborating with your team on projects and getting work done, it’s a major hindrance to your team’s productivity.

Obviously, email is not all bad. It’s really effective at quickly and effortlessly communicating with others, when it comes to productively working together with your team, it fails to help you get the job done. According to an article published by Microsoft, of the email you receive:

  • 50% can be deleted or filed
  • 30% can be delegated of completed in less than two minutes
  • 20% can be deferred to your Task List or Calendar to complete later

What if you used a project collaboration tool that could assist with this automatically?
