Note From Julie: Technology Plays a Vital Role in Collaboration

May 18, 2018 | Communication, Technology

Admins use numerous types of technology to do their jobs efficiently and effectively every day – from coordinating meetings to managing expense reports. But did you know that technology can also play a crucial role in collaboration?

With so many teams now working together virtually, learning how to use web and video conferencing tools helps everyone connect more authentically. When you can see someone’s body language, you get more information on what’s being communicated beyond their words and tone.

Cloud-based, file-sharing tools, like Dropbox or Sharepoint, and project management tools, such as Teamwork or Basecamp, are becoming increasingly important in keeping everyone connected to the most current information. As assistants, it’s our job to learn as much as we can about these tools so we can effectively collaborate with the rest of the team, too.

This week, I share several tips for finding the right technology to support your virtual team. And we’re explaining more about how technology can improve collaboration with your executive, colleagues, and more on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages.

Which types of technology or software are you using to effectively collaborate on your teams? Share them with us at

Supporting your administrative success,

Julie Perrine
