Collaborative workspaces have been on the rise for the past decade – especially in the last year. Why the sudden surge? All companies, big or small, are embracing collaborative workspaces—and for good reasons. Whether you’re a solo entrepreneur working on launching your company or a university student working on design projects, collaborative spaces offer a wealth of benefits. Devising multiple workspaces will help you stick to deadlines and organize your all work on a single platform.
With Simplified, you can create multiple collaborative workspaces and switch between them within seconds! Read on to know how.
Perks Of Creating Multiple Workspaces
The virtual shared workspace is where and how people at any company can collaborate online. It exists in the software and programs you use to communicate and work daily. From office favorites like Slack to user-friendly design software like Simplified, your brand has increasing number of ways to collaborate and work together. Shared workspace can:
Promote Company Culture
Many designers communicate with each other over social media platforms. But they rarely work together that way. While marketing teams use social media to promote your company to the rest of the world, you need a way to collaborate on creatives internally.
Lacking a single place to store documents and conversations is a roadblock to a streamlined workflow. Transferring company docs via email or chat is a bad idea. As it’s one of the primary ways information gets lost.
