Hoping to attract customers to its new marketing collaboration tools, Volerro today launched a free interactive tool called ReVu.Me that allows business teams to discuss and annotate print documents, videos, photos and more in real time in the cloud.

ReVu.Me is available to anyone as a stand-alone service. It is also integrated into Volerro's marketing collaboration suite, which has attracted 1,100 paying customers during the beta phase, the company claims. The collaboration suite also was formally launched today.

Together, they offer a broad set of low-cost document management capabilities for smaller companies that have outgrown Basecamp, but lack the financial cost and technical complexity of SharePoint.

Collaboration Isn't Just for Knowledge Workers

Any discussion about collaboration that focuses entirely on the "knowledge worker" risks leaving a lot of employees out of the conversation. 

The Yin and Yang of Collaboration: Engagement and Analytics

Let's face it: Getting people's attention, getting time on their calendar, getting them on the phone, getting people to collaborate on anything is like herding cats. Competing demands personally and professionally, increasing amount of information in an increasing variety of forms from an increasing number of channels -- that’s why the future of collaboration will focus on engagement and the underlying analytics that drive human behavior, productivity, efficiencies, satisfaction, revenue opportunities or other metrics impacting your organization.

A Primer on CMO, CIO Collaboration

A Primer on CMO, CIO CollaborationThe lines between the CIO and CMO are blurring as the two roles become increasingly intertwined, led by marketing’s move to focus more around technology and great digital experiences. From quickly creating websites for different campaigns to managing customer analytics and back-end data, today’s marketers have a required skillset that often overlaps with that of the CIO, who has traditionally managed and maintained a company’s IT infrastructure. For that reason, CMOs are becoming integral decision makers when it comes to buying and operating a company’s technology assets.

Working Seamlessly Together: Collaboration Lessons from Email

Working Seamlessly Together: Collaboration Lessons from EmailA couple of months ago, I shared a vision where all information was at our fingertips. It's a nice vision for the future of work but we have a more immediate problem:

How do I collaborate with Jed in Toledo?

There have been a lot of solutions proposed. Historically they have involved software solutions that require me to work on a document on my computer, upload it to a collaboration system and wait for Jed. He will then add comments, upload a new version or do both.

The likely answer if Jed and I don’t work for the same company is that we'll use email. After all this time, email is still the most used collaboration tool. Maybe instead of declaring email as dead, we should examine why email works and apply that to our efforts to improve collaboration.

Making BYOD Work: Are New Technologies the Solution?

mobile device.jpg

It's no secret that bringing your own device to work – colloquially known as BYOD – is on the rise, with employees increasingly preferring to work on their own familiar devices than those provided by their loving employers. A Forrester study commissioned by Cisco and released last September found that employees access a variety of work-related mobile applications on their personal smartphones and tablets, including email, calendar, web browsers and company portals. 

This trend has its benefits, to be sure, but there’s also a slightly sinister side to it that has companies scrambling for solutions.

The Future of Collaboration Lies in Human Resources' Hands

The Future of Collaboration Lies in Human Resources' HandsHere we are, 2014 and still wondering what the future of collaboration is -- as if we didn't know already.

Despite all efforts to trump it or get rid of it altogether in favor of other noble concepts like cooperation, the hard truth is that collaboration has always been here. And it will continue to be here for many years to come. It's a human trait. It's our capability of getting work done together. Effectively.

It's a Big World: Collaboration Tools Need Global Reach

global collaboration.jpg

Our most used communication and collaboration apps have little understanding of today’s multilingual, multicultural, multinational businesses. They don’t reflect the nature of the modern workforce or the nature of globalization.

Internationalism in software is equated with localization, end of story. So what can we do about it?

'Just Say No' to Native Social Features

Native Social Features, the Gateway Drug to Enterprise Information SilosThe gateway drug to enterprise information silos

We were all warned about the danger of gateway drugs. Just one moment of indiscretion using Bad Thing X would undoubtedly lead you into a lifetime of abuse of Bad Thing Y, which would eventually ruin your life. After that, you might start skipping school, join a rock band, get a tattoo or drive off in a Volkswagen Beetle for the summer with no distinct purpose.

The same rule applies in enterprise software, where lightweight native social features inside purpose-built business applications are Bad Thing X. Today, there is a real problem threatening companies attempting to become a truly social business: lightweight social features baked into purpose-built software are the gateway drug to collaboration failure.

Managing Work-Life Balance in an Always On Enterprise

Managing Work-Life Balance in an With the amazing technological advances of the past two decades, pervasive connectivity has become commonplace for the majority of employees. Thinking back even just 20 years ago, who could have imagined the access to information we carry around every day in our pockets and purses?

The Future of Collaboration is Right Under Our Noses

under my nose.jpg

What's the future of collaboration, exactly? More to the point, what's the future of collaboration in the enterprise?

You might be tempted to think there are no easy answers, but on the contrary, it might be closer to the truth to say the answers are right in front of us. It might be a hoary old cliché, but the future really is -- wait for it -- here today. In consumer products. The consumerization of IT is far from over, and there's a few key currents in consumer usage patterns that we really should pay attention to.

CMSWire Tweet Jam: The Future of Collaboration #SocBizChat

Collaboration comes up frequently in discussions of workplace productivity, but are we all on the same page on what it means? Have the tools introduced in the digital workplace aid collaboration or complicate it? What next steps do businesses need to take to move forward with collaboration? Find out tomorrow during our Future of Collaboration Tweet Jam!

Separating Collaboration from the Collaboration Tools

Separating Collaboration from the Collaboration ToolsSearch for the term “collaboration” in Google or Bing and you get more than 90 million hits. Wikipedia lists more than 120 software products claiming to support collaboration in one way or another. Have we become collaboration, or more specifically, collaboration technology obsessed?

Collaboration has been around for millennia. Webster tells us that to collaborate is merely to “to work with another person or group in order to achieve or do something.” What could be simpler or more straightforward than that? Why should it be so much in today’s spotlight?

On the surface it seems we’re making collaboration into something very complex and tightly bound up with the latest technology trends. Our view of what collaboration should be and how we should enable and support it appears to be increasingly shaped by the technology tools available to us.
