Economic Impact Of Efficient Workplace Communication

By Shivin Gupta 8th March 2019

Ever wondered why some businesses advance rapidly even in today’s world?

Healthy communication is the reason for success.

In the last two years, explosive innovation in workplace communications technology with endless features are changing the way we communicate, collaborate and share information bringing significant efficiency gains in all activities. Due to changes in employee’s needs, organizations should provide an environment that is stimulating and satisfying much more than just physiological and safety needs.

Business communication is a very crucial element in successful business organization and while any form of teamwork can improve quality and speed, organized workplace collaboration will heighten your overall productivity even more.

According to a survey in 2k18, efficient workplace communication cut down the costs by 48 %!

  • Improved collaboration and information sharing and more efficient meetings saved users’ time (Up to 3.2 hours/user/week).
  • On-premise support costs were reduced by 65% in one of the use cases.
  • Moving to cloud-based collaboration tools eliminated 20 hours of downtime.
  • An additional 93 trips per year were replaced with the online meeting because of better adoption and usability of the collaboration tools.

Reduced Collaboration Solution Costs

The interviews and survey revealed that companies can reduce or eliminate many cost types associated with their previous collaboration solutions by moving to self-hosted (On-premises hardware and maintenance) reducing IT support effort and telephony charges (Mobile and long distance).

  • Reduce telecom and hardware costs by 16%
  • IT support costs for collaboration solutions fell by 14%

The nature of teamwork today is incredibly diverse. Teams come in all different shapes and sizes. Teams can have two people or two thousand. Projects can last for two days or two years. Team members can be local or spread across the globe, it can include vendors and contractors along with full-time employees. Fugu is designed to be a universal toolkit for teamwork to give you the right tools for the right task, along with common services to help you seamlessly work across applications.

Employee-centric workspace

While most organizations still need to have separate space for independent or “quiet work,” it should be understood how much a workspace increases the opportunity for connections between people.

Effective communication is pivotal in increasing productivity because it directly influences the behavior of the staff and the way they perform. Efficient communication which includes clear instructions, fast message delivery, and proper explanation, is the key factor to solid cooperation between managers and employees. It plays an eminent role in getting things done which ultimately increases the department’s productivity.

Fugu is a tool built for this purpose!

  • Organize your conversations
  • Share files and messages
  • Express emotions
  • Rich push-notifications

Communication-privacy trade-off

Open-plan office layout is commonly assumed to facilitate communication and interaction between co-workers, promoting workplace satisfaction and teamwork effectiveness. On the other hand, open-plan layouts are widely acknowledged to be more disruptive due to uncontrollable noise and loss of privacy.

Enclosed private offices clearly outperformed open-plan layouts in most aspects, particularly in acoustics, privacy and the proxemics issues. Benefits of enhanced ease of interaction were smaller than the penalties of increased noise level and decreased privacy resulting from open-plan office configuration.

The point that presents itself here is no matter the office layout, an individual has to give one of the aspects up to enjoy the privilege of another. However, Fugu is specially designed to overcome this scenario with its secure workspace feature with username restriction and admin transparency.

All for one, one for all

Since marking attendance through pen and paper manually has become obsolete, most organizations prefer the means of biometrics or face-recognition for keeping a track of their employees. Even this high-tech solution is rendered useless if a company consists of a large number of employees. Standing in long queues isn’t exactly what makes people jump with joy.

Fugu, on the other hand, offers its users a personalized attendance bot for the same saving them all the hassle based on a smart location-based algorithm. It doesn’t end here because neither does any good company’s aim to achieve employee satisfaction. It consists of numerous other bots designed for a specific purpose like apply leaves and conduct meetings just to name a few.

Platform Syncing

Most companies would want their employees to work on a platform based on the type of work assigned to them so it would be expected from them to have adaptability for various operating systems. No one would want to see their data vanish when they migrate to a different platform.

Fugu is designed to overcome this problem as all the media and conversation data personal to an individual would be synced across all the platforms.
