What is contextual collaboration software?
Contextual collaboration software is a type of software that facilitates group collaboration through a variety of interactive applications in a single interface. Such resources create the feeling that remotely located employees are 'working in the same room'.
Contextual collaboration involves a high level of presence technology or tools that facilitate user interaction.
Common contextual elements of collaboration include resources that function like standard instant messaging (IM) systems, allowing users to work on common goals through real-time chat. Some contextual collaboration tools provide additional information, such as: B. Scheduled chat times or notes from previous meetings. Digital video is an important resource for contextual collaboration.
Shared or shared access to relevant project files and data is another important element of contextual collaboration. When a group can review resources together, collective decisions are easier to make.
Contextual collaboration enables file sharing and viewing so that group members can access the same information and work from the same knowledge base. This means that group members can easily access these resources through real-time communication.
