Powering Hybrid Work
The tech industry has changed substantially over the past two years, but one trend has staying power: hybrid work. Employees have grown accustomed to working from anywhere. First it was their homes but now the definition of “the office” has expanded to once again include the campus or small branches as well as the road, a new country or even a new state. With so many employees on the move and mixing and matching their working locations, companies need collaboration tools more than ever to keep business moving.

Many companies and employees alike are having a hard time getting their hands on collaboration and videoconferencing hardware, so online collaboration tools are winning the day. Users only need a laptop with a built-in camera to communicate, work and share alongside their teams. Leading collaboration players such as Microsoft with Teams, Zoom, and Cisco with Webex emerged as the frontrunners in this space two years ago, but Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and videoconferencing specialists quickly came to play with their own offerings packed with capabilities to help keep teams connected at a time when hybrid work is king.
