How to Collaborate in Real Time with Partners That Don’t Have Real-Time Collaboration Tools

Nov 30, 2015 8:00:00 AM

To succeed in today’s fast-paced business world, organizations need to share information in real-time across internal and external teams.

However, despite their well-documented benefits, surprisingly 55 percent of organizations have yet to deploy any real-time collaboration tools. So right off the bat, because these companies lack UC platforms, organizations that have already deployed UC solutions aren’t able to federate with them.

To overcome these limitations and enable real-time collaboration, end users at companies that don’t use UC tools can make use of secure business messaging services, like NextPlane nCore. Featuring built-in federation functionality, the web-based platform interoperates with all major UC platforms, including the one your organization uses.  

Even though nCore is a complete cloud-based business messaging, with presence, chat, multi-user chat, voice and video calling capabilities, we call it an alternative to UC federation.

Why? Because your users can add nCore users to their UC client’s contact lists to send IM, see presence information, participate in group chats, and place voice and video calls—all as if they were on the same platform.

With nCore, there is no need for you to engage other companies’ IT folks to convince them to deploy an expensive UC solution. You don’t have to wait for them to do so, either.

To enable real-time collaboration, here’s all you need to do:

Spread the word! Let your Line of Business managers know about nCore and how it can solve their external collaboration challenges. Tell them to ask their business counterparts to sign up for the service for free.
