One of the 7 types of virtual teams can be suitable for you, however, which platform can provide the best?
Personal Software Is Not Good Enough
Generally, to communicate with fellow teams in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) with a scale of 30-250 employees and corporates with several divisions, they use WhatsApp as a communication platform.
According to a white paper by Google,
“There are 30% of frontline workers use messaging apps such as WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger up to six times a day for work-related reasons, but 68% of them said they would stop if given approved internal communication tools”
The data above shows that some workers feel uncomfortable using personal software as work tools. One of the main reasons is they are worried about sending the wrong group chat. This of course makes them embarrassed. Or even worse, they could have submitted the wrong document.
Another big problem is that the WhatsApp account is linked to the phone number. So once a worker changes their number, it is likely that the new owner of the old number will receive a message from the company that is confidential.
Moreover, the backup system requires large storage space, which is potentially not compatible with your memory phone. In this case, your device may lag and you may not have enough time to recover your files.
So, it seems you need professional software with a large storage capacity for your business. And of course, it has to be safe.
