The 4 defining characteristics of effective digital workspaces

Not so long ago, it was believed that for teams to be productive, they required long hours confined in a physical office space with constant face-to-face interaction. To be fair, given the primitive state of digital collaboration tools at the time—which was pretty much limited to emails—there wasn't really a solid alternative to this scheme, so companies worked with what they had. Today, digitalization has made it possible for several people to seamlessly work together while being halfway across the world from each other. Exponential advancements in virtual workspaces have not only enabled teams to work as well as they did when they spent all day in the office, but have also proven that people are actually more productive the less they have to deal with alienating cubicles and two-way trips along traffic-congested highways. Not all digital workspaces have been equally effective, however. Yet decades of iterating and optimizing have finally given us a solid idea of the most important characteristics these spaces must have to reach their full potential. So what are they?

The Business Cloud Integration team specialise in the integration, design, implementation and support of SharePoint Online solutions leveraging the Microsoft Azure and Office 365 full product stack.

We developed Casper365 to delegate the deployment of SharePoint Online sites to the real business users and continue to develop this tool and the templates available to integrate with SharePoint Online, Microsoft Flow, PowerApps and Microsoft Teams deployments. Casper365 is now available for consultants, partners and enterprise clients. 

We started Business Cloud Integration at a time when the contracting market was booming. We simply wanted to provide a better experience for customers by maintaining long lasting relationships, rather than companies working through 3 to 4 contractors until a project was dragged across the line. 

The landscape has changed significantly and the technology too; but our values remain the same.
