Current Solutions vs. The Need ► The Current State of Collaboration

Working with Others

We work with others to get things done.

How many people do you communicate with regularly? Do you have regular contact with customers, suppliers and work associates in and out of your company? Do you attend meetings as a member of committees, project teams, advisory boards, your own staff?

Most of us have dozens of people and groups that we collaborate with regularly.

Current Solutions vs. The Need ► The Current State of Collaboration

Collaboration Difficulties

We hold more live meetings than we need to.

We really don’t need to pull people away from their jobs for live meetings all the time. We could handle most things off-line, but there’s no good way to do that.

Working with groups using email is more than a pain. Maintaining distribution lists is a fruitless struggle.

So we’re always on the phone or our Blackberries… and that’s often just to schedule our live meetings.

It’s even more complicated and inconvenient if you need to include people who work in different time zones or outside of your company.

Current Solutions vs. The Need ► The Current State of Collaboration

What can we do now?

  • We have “send and pray” email with its problems:

    • Unreliable. Confidential information exposed to online predators who are constantly trolling for valuable information. Distribution lists that are impossible to keep current. Spam. Cluttered inboxes and confusion over which file is the right one to use.

  • We have a gazillion collaboration tools, but none that are easy to use, protect our privacy, or help us keep agendas moving effectively between meetings.

Current Solutions vs. The Need ► The Answer Collaboration

What is the answer?

ProductiveTeams eMeetings offers an elegant solution—private online group discussions that members can join in at whatever time is best for each group member.

Best-Time Collaboration™ ― the best way to sustain team momentum between real-time meetings.

How does Best-Time Collaboration work? ► The TeamLink Center

How does Best-Time Collaboration work?

The ProductiveTeams TeamLink Center™

Created in just a few minutes at ProductiveTeams.com, a TeamLink Center is an independent operations center.

It’s like having your own virtual conference center. You get all of the technical, administrative, and security services needed to support all the ProductiveTeams eMeetings™ you need.

There is no upfront cost. No software to buy and nothing to download or install on your computer.

There is a modest monthly fee per user.

How does Best-Time Collaboration work? ► The TeamLink Center

How does Best-Time Collaboration work?

Set up as many private ProductiveTeams eMeetings as you need for each of your key working relationships.

Invite only the people who should be in each one. Your information stays safe because only those you invite have access to each eMeeting.

There are no distribution lists to maintain because everything stays in your TeamLink Center database. Nothing is sent out. People sign in to communicate.

Work easily and productively with more people than you thought possible—no matter where you or they happen to be.

How does Best-Time Collaboration work? ► PT eMeetings Center

ProductiveTeams eMeetings…(1/3)

Geography is not a factor. Team members can be drawn from within or outside your organization, locally or from across the world.

There is no demand on your company’s technical resources.

Every PT eMeeting™ is always open and available, so those invited can each participate at each their personal Best-Time™ convenience.

Safely include “outsiders”—consultants, partners, contractors, vendors, customers—knowing that each person you invite only has access to (or even awareness of) the specific eMeetings to which you invite them.

How does Best-Time Collaboration work? ► PT eMeetings Center

  • ProductiveTeams eMeetings…(2/3)

  • You will recognize the familiar email style, but PT eMeetings are the polar opposite of email:

  • Your information is not scattered to computers all over. All eMeeting content is safely under your control.

  • Each message and file is known to be the latest version.

  • The sender retains control of messages and files after they are sent. You know who received your information and when. You can even edit your message or file after it has been sent. And that can be disabled for audit trail needs.

  • Authorized users always have access to the messages and files whenever they wish from wherever they are.

How does Best-Time Collaboration work? ► PT eMeetings Center

  • ProductiveTeams eMeetings…(3/3)

  • Information stays organized. No inbox clutter.

  • Real-time, too: Instant messenger type notifications when new content is posted to any of your eMeetings. Plus daily email notification if new content is added.

  • No spam, no spyware, no distribution lists.

  • Secure your communications via encrypted SSL connections.

  • A personalized eMeetings Inbox for every user. Move from one eMeeting to another by simply clicking its name.

How does Best-Time Collaboration work? ► Types of eMeetings

eMeeting types to meet all of your needs

  • More available or coming soon…

  • Polling

  • Newsletter

  • Project Management

  • Executive Overview

  • Moderated

  • Classroom

Soon these eMeeting types will be menu-selectable. You will still be able to customize their permission settings.

Invite Assigned Positions to eMeetings

With ProductiveTeams eMeetings you can assign users to positions in the TeamLink Center Directory. Then you can invite positions (instead of specific users) to eMeetings.

Why would I do that?

A position in the directory reflects a person’s responsibilities, title(s), or how that person is associated with your organization and largely determines the eMeetings that person needs to be in.

For example, if you are the Director of Sales, consider all the meetings you attend. You lead some, you participate in some, and you need to know what goes on in others. The number of collaborations that require your attention can be surprisingly high.

Introducing One-Step Access Management™

Introducing One-Step Access Management ™

What could not be done before is now easy

Now the single simple act of changing an assignment in the directory instantly updates user access to every eMeeting that is affected by that change.

As people come and go, as they change responsibilities, as new team combinations are created….nobody has to ploddingly open every eMeeting affected by every change every time while hoping that every needed change was remembered and correctly applied. That is and always has been impractical to do. That is why we’ve never had this capability before.

Delegate…

You can delegate directory maintenance to “branch administrators.” So even the simple task of updating the user directory can be handled by those who have the information in each department or leadership group.

Soon you’ll be able to let selected users or portions of your directory pay their own user fees and even track departmental responsibility.

Your TeamLink Center User Directory ► Setting up the Directory ► Questions to ask yourself

Setting Up Your TeamLink Center Directory

  • What should be considered? Who will be participating?

  • 1. Do I want everyone to have access to everything?

    • If so, one position in the directory can be assigned to everyone.

    • For example, families can stay in contact, plan events, etc. They usually need only simple directory setups.

    • Even with a simple directory, you can still create private eMeetings for selected individuals.

    • As your needs change, you can easily make changes to your directory and those changes will automatically be reflected in your eMeetings as appropriate.


Finally an elegant tool that let s us keep momentum going between our live meetings

Your TeamLink Center User Directory ► Setting up the Directory ► Questions to ask yourself

  • 2. Or, like most, do I want to control access?

    • Will you include customers, vendors, students, consultants or any other “outside” users in your eMeetings?

    • Will your group have access to shared information but not know who else has access it? For example, to give clients access to product literature, to report problems, etc.—while keeping your client list confidential.

    • Do your teams work on proprietary company projects?

    • Do you need distance-learning classrooms?

    • Do people come and go or change assignments?

    • Then you’ll want at least some structure to your directory so it will be easy to manage eMeetings access. You may want the TLC Directory to match your organization chart.

Summary ► Unique Capabilities Directory ► Questions to ask yourself

SUMMARY: capabilities not available anywhere else

  • Quickly and conveniently create private collaboration forums for all the groups you work with, regardless of size, covering all topics and areas of interest.

  • Safely include “outsider” users.

  • As people come and go or change assignments, a simple change in your TeamLink Center directory instantly and automatically updates eMeetings access. This makes it practical to have as many eMeetings as you want.

  • Get real-time benefits with Best-Time convenience. You are notified immediately when new content is added to any of your eMeetings.

  • No up-front cost, no technical requirements, no software or equipment to buy or maintain, and no worries about server management.
