If Rube Goldberg Designed a Collaboration Ecosystem

by in Best Practices, Changing the Way the World Communicates, Lifesize, Technology

Rube Goldberg machines are cool, at least in theory, but once those deliberately complex contraptions start taking over your office conferencing and collaboration solutions, they turn into more of a hassle and less of a mesmerizing sequence.


 

When it comes to collaboration technology, the easier it is to use, the better. In a recent survey we conducted with Spiceworks, we found that the average IT manager is juggling 4.4 solutions (about 3.4 solutions too many) across three separate providers.  And 56 percent of those IT managers don’t have a clue how much they’re actually spending on all of the different providers in their collaboration ecosystem. Not only does this chaotic approach to communication lead to confusion and frustration for everyone involved, it also eats away a lot more money than you think.
