The IT challenge for small startups
In this age of startups, most small-sized operations cannot afford dedicated office IT platforms, so by default they adopt the other extreme – no integrated IT system whatsoever. Coworkers typically use their personal email IDs and social networks to collaborate with each other. This complete absence of a system causes a number of problems.
For example, if you have 3 employees collaborating on a project, files would constantly need to be sent back and forth, updates would be delivered via several different email threads or even across platforms (email, whatsapp, Facebook etc) , and documents would be overwritten, re-edited and saved multiple times. All this creates confusion. Ultimately time and productivity is lost, important information is crowded out, and miscommunication occurs. The end result: delays, errors and overall inefficiency.
