Work collaboration

It’s understandable that everyone has their own way of doing things and their own work personality. Some listen to music, chat with colleagues and enjoy the general buzz and hum that a working environment provides. Others are solo workers. They head into unused meeting spaces and wear noise cancelling headphones solely to block out the noise around them. Neither way is wrong. It’s when there is also a collision in styles of executing and delivering tasks that there becomes a problem.

Collaboration at work doesn’t mean that people with the same working styles must work together. In fact, Belbin’s theory states that several differing styles of worker are needed to form a constructive team. There is, however, a requirement that strong communication within that team is present to articulate responsibilities clearly, be assured of progress and provide guidance when needed.

Verto unites teams

Join forces by using a cloud-based work collaboration platform to not only house all project documents and workspaces in a configurable way to suit the work, or the team involved, but one that also connects and amalgamates team members for a collaborative effort from start to finish.

No one is left wondering whether activities have been completed, as everyone is able to view and update progress. There is no unnecessary doubling up of work, as it’s clear who’s working on what, at all times. Most importantly, as everyone is attuned to the same system, the data is accurate, provides solid benchmarking and can be reported on fast, and with ease.

Collaborative working enabled by Verto

Sharing is caring

Being part of a collaborative team means that competitive behaviour is left behind. The reluctance to share information and ideas stifles progress and increases divisions within an organisation. So Verto helps to support innovation, openness, transparency, accountability and ultimately, growth for a team.

With the carefully constructed set of tools that Verto offers, a siloed mentality is not able to become the prominent way of working so will be pushed out of existence. For example:

  • Within Verto One, notifications alert people when a piece of work is allocated to them. Many tasks can be completed within Verto if using integrations, such as Office 365 tools. And once complete, the whole team will be updated, progress can be plotted, and reports will be updated.
  • Verto One also has a robust document storage system with a few ways of accessing documents. Cards within the Kanban-style boards hold as much information and store as many documents as needed. There is also the master file storage section that holds everything inputted and created within Verto. Every change made to any of the documents is also logged using the version history feature so you’ll never lose a thing.
  • Verto chat is an instant message function that all your project team can access. Minimise email traffic and keep quick messages within the team by using the function. The companion app keeps you up to date with messages and notifications when not at your desk.
  • Dashboard functionality is always working away in the background. So, at any point if you need to see the state of play, you can access your own dashboard to understand exactly what is happening across the whole workspace. You can access information on any risks that might be looming ahead of them becoming issues using this tool, or map risks and issues separately if they need to be specifically highlighted.
