With the advent of technology, it is getting only easier for teams to collaborate without needing to meet face to face. With the world craving for flexibility, it is no wonder that virtual working has taken shape and is getting more popular day by day. Virtual teams can be more cohesive, effective and engaging.
Research shows that virtual team members are more productive and motivated than those sitting in an office space. According to a report by Aon Consulting working with a virtual team improved employee productivity by up to 43%.
Keeping this in mind, it is important to adopt the right collaboration tool and environment, in order to continue a productive working relationship with your virtual teams and avoid malfunctions.

Benefits of working with a Virtual Team
Hire for Quality
With Virtual teams, organisations are no longer restricted to geographical boundaries, and can hire talent with the right expertise and quality as per the organisations requirement. This can be especially beneficial when a company may need to have its presence in a particular country without necessarily needing a physical presence in the same location.
By having the team in a virtual location, the company saves cost on any office infrastructure, supplies, travel expense etc
Fewer Unnecessary Meetings
Working with virtual teams, rids the organisation from having impromptu face to face meetings that are often not productive and can end up wasting time. Instead, collaborating and planning a meeting over a space like Ideolve can help in setting the Agenda for a meeting at a scheduled and convenient time.
