The flexibility to outsource problems and in turn accept work within their practice allows the person maximize their output.In order to work there needs to be inherent flexibility and a willingness to be cooperative.
The tools of collaboration are:
- Video conferencing such as zoom
- Application sharing such as office 365 suite
- Document management and storage such as Dropbox and Adobe services
- Blogging and social media pages which ideas can be exchanged
Inherent skills used by the business are mandatory when it comes to the above. The communicative skills required allow the sharing of information.
In my own main business, I have a backbone cloud shared accounting with MYOB essentials. This allows me to share reports and data with the client in real time. I am more a collaborator in their business now more than ever. It seems also that cloud-based message systems are being used more and more by clients as real-time is where the clients want results. Being familiar with the systems allows me to operate with ease!
