There’s nothing quite like a brainstorming session to spark creativity, sketch out ideas, and map a project. But remote working has left our meeting rooms gathering dust and dried out our whiteboard pens.
The good news is that collaboration software tools can do all the face-to-face stuff – and more. It's all about finding the right match. Whether you're in it for a quick sprint or long-term journey, have money to spend or are on a tight budget, there’s a cloud collaboration tool for you.
If your team's all about brainstorming, consider diving into the world of virtual whiteboards.
These platforms give your team the freedom to fill up blank canvases or templates using virtual sticky notes or sketches. They're perfect for ensuring every team member gets heard, breaking down barriers that can sometimes hold back your quieter voices.
A 'live' version lets you see real-time changes and contributions for smooth collaboration. Features like video conferencing and instant chat can also bring that meeting room vibe and enhance teamwork. Remember to choose a virtual whiteboard that lets you easily share your creations on your collaboration platform, or save them as files like PowerPoint , so you can build on your ideas later.
