Seamless collaboration to help you work smarter

As modern workplaces continue to evolve, the workers of today expect flexibility, ideally mixing working from home with the more traditional approach of working from the office.

This hybrid approach makes it an imperative for business leaders to ensure that collaboration and communication are an integrated part of everyday work for everyone, in any location, on any device.

Data#3 provides a range of modern, cloud-based collaboration solutions – video conferencing, shared collaboration spaces, virtual whiteboards and instant messaging. We can tailor a solution to suit your needs with a goal of improving individual and team productivity, to boost performance across your business. We also offer a range of workshops, programs and training to ensure successful user adoption and the highest return for your investment.

“Through the correct use and adoption of collaboration platforms, it is not uncommon for employees to be able to save 5–10% of their time.”1

The dramatic impact that businesses experience when deploying a unified collaboration solution is truly transformative; positively impacting employee satisfaction, improving productivitybolstering security and – in some cases – returning some serious ROI.

To help your business understand the wider benefits, there’s a number of different ways we can help, ranging from Planning Workshops through to solution demonstrations and Teams Rooms pilot installations and trials.

Collaboration platforms

Empower your teams to come together across organisational and geographical boundaries on easily accessible and intuitive collaboration platforms delivered by world-leading technology partners you can trust.

Microsoft Teams

Bring together chat, video calling, file storage and sharing, and integrated apps in one central hub and support everyone to get work done, regardless of geographies.

Microsoft Teams is just one part of the Microsoft 365 suite – so it’s already in the toolkit of most organisations, but not always fully utilised – and it integrates seamlessly with your Office applications, email, calendars and SharePoint.

Cisco Webex

A complete, cloud-based collaboration solution designed for simplicity, Webex brings people together into ‘spaces’ – virtual rooms that contain messages, meetings, contacts, documents and real-time whiteboarding.

Free to download, easy to implement and quick to deliver – see how easy it is to love how you work.

Collaboration technologies

Consider the ease of joining a video meeting with one click, inviting others in an instant, capturing thoughts on a team board, and seamlessly sharing content. Ultramodern meeting devices that battle eye strain, video fatigue and external noise will transform the humble meeting room into a video-enabled collaboration space that spans and unites a hybrid workforce.

Smart Boards

Utilise an all-in-one digital whiteboard, ideal for co-creation between employees in both physical rooms and virtual spaces.

Meeting Rooms

Kit out your meeting spaces with everything you need to run focused, seamless video meetings for employees in the office and at home.

Personal Devices

The same personal video and headphone devices that combat video fatigue and external noise in the office are perfect for the home office.
