Why??
  • Why use these tools?
    • Because it keeps information in one place.
    • Communication is scattered during projects
    • More people are telecommuting
    • It’s a way to work with colleagues in other offices
    • They’re easy to use (and mostly free)
  • Most importantly
    • Your patrons are using them!

communication without shared tools
Communication Without Shared Tools

And now,everyone knows little bits and pieces

and no one knows everything.

keeping everyone in the loop
Keeping Everyone in the Loop
  • Shared tools allow you and your colleagues to work more productively and efficiently, never excluding someone who needs to be in the loop.
