The Best Virtual Spaces For Collaboration

If you’re working remotely, or in an alternate work arrangement the chances are that your team is using some form of video calling or online collaboration tools such as Slack. These 2D tools are not always the best tools for encouraging connections and collaboration between team members.

Collaboration spaces are crucial. The best virtual spaces are those that are akin to the physical office by having meeting rooms, desks and common areas. This allows teams to locate each other quickly. After that, using nudges and live chat as they move through the space, colleagues can engage in natural communication and encounters that resemble those that happen naturally in a real-world office environment.

Kumospace is the virtual workspace can help reduce the necessity of meeting by giving employees the impression that they are “working next to someone”. It also offers a variety of virtual rooms that can be used for collaboration, from sprint planning and 1:1 catch-ups, to sales demos and presentations for projects.

Switchboard is another virtual collaboration tool that elevates the feeling of working in an office to an entirely new level. Its virtual rooms that are collaborative and canvas allows teams to be productive quickly, working together on browser-based applications and documents. After the session is over, everything is saved so that everyone can continue where they started.

Other virtual spaces like Teemyco and Gather help foster teamwork by making it easier for coworkers to see what they are doing in the virtual office. It’s easy to tell if someone is working on a large project, giving a sales demonstration or simply taking a virtual break.
