Collaboration Blog Post Img.jpgThe video-chatting capabilities of Skype for Business, sharing opportunities of WebEx, and simplicity of GoToMeeting are great ways to work collectively in and away from the office, but there are other B2B collaboration platforms you may want to consider.

The market for information sharing/video conferencing software has expanded significantly over the recent years. Since there are so many available options, we picked out 3 collaboration platforms for technology businesses that we found interesting, and different.


1. Google’s Jamboard

This device is a business tool that essentially replaces the traditional whiteboard. The Jamboard is a B2B technological advancement that is sure to change the way people collectively participate in meetings, sales pitches; all while bringing ideas to the table. Jamboard Pic1.jpg

As seen above, it is a touch-enabled screen that connects with just a power cord. This next-gen white board gives you the power to search the web and even take screenshots anywhere, anytime. Jamboard also allows you to bring ideas to the board at your convenience in and outside of the office, making edits and idea creation a breeze. Connect with other Jamboards, use Google cloud services and change the way your organization collaborates.

This collaboration platform for B2B businesses is an upgrade from that whiteboard full of sticky notes. The Jamboard is a step into the future.


2. Wrkbench

When it comes to collaborating wirelessly for business, Wrkbench provides an extremely versatile service. Similar to WebEx and GoToMeeting, you have the ability to share your screen’s content, build ideas together, all within their app-based service.

According to their website you can, “improve, annotate and discuss ideas together within your WrkBench - wherever your team is. And when you’re all together, proprietary mobile-to-mobile collaboration technology means you don’t need data [internet connection] to make progress.”

The Wrkbench you create is a template that you can share and edit with everyone you invite, making it a great collaboration platform for B2B companies. You can organize thoughts or maybe draw up a strategy; with or without internet access. Simply enter an area with internet and the app will update the changes you made. Wrkbench stands alone when it comes to collaboration convenience.

Make your mobile device your traveling board room and create your own Wrkbench for business to business meetings by sharing ideas with your peers. Consider this app as the all-around “ideas pop-up anytime” platform.


3. Highfive

Highfive is a collaboration platform that mashes Wrkbench and Skype for Business into one convenient tool. It acknowledges the importance of video-conferencing while allowing your clients and co-workers to share their content. Highfive makes B2B digital meetings a breeze.

The Highfive platform was created with superior video and audio in mind. Including a camera with a built-in mic and speakers, this digital conferencing company takes B2B collaboration to new heights. After you install the easy-to-assemble the device, use their program to collaborate together; clearly and efficiently. highfive_device_hero.png
