Organizations Gain Competitive Advantage with Co-Authoring

The challenge today is not simply capturing and storing more information, but using that information more effectively to drive business results.

 

No matter what business you’re in, at the end of the day, you’ve got to land the contract, make the deal, and please the client in order to be profitable. For enterprise organizations, this requires the ability to assemble the right information, efficiently and effectively, and present content in the form of highly polished, high-impact documents.

Co-authoring is a big challenge in industries like Oil and Gas, Life Science, and Insurance. Team members can spend more time managing the parts and pieces than they do actually contributing value to the process. This slows the ability to respond and raises the risk of losing to more agile competitors in the market.

Even organizations with extensive infrastructure find co-authoring can be an Achilles heel. Many content management systems are very good at providing a platform for file sharing, but they are not well-suited for the task of co-authoring. As organizations shift to remote work and virtual collaboration, the need for a new approach is even more pressing.

 

What can you do?

Xait makes co-authoring easy, agile and highly effective. Organizations that leverage team collaboration and co-authoring as an organizational skill will have a distinct competitive advantage. Now you can adopt next-generation content and collaboration tools to do just that. The functionality includes built-in workflow, easy reuse of content, and an enterprise-wide content base that enables a new competitive advantage.

 

What are the results?

Produce more, quicker – High-stakes documents like exploratory proposals, engineering contracts and regulatory submissions can total hundreds of pages. Valuable time is often wasted formatting and numbering, working with graphics, and integrating revisions and versions. We eliminate that complexity with a database-driven approach to content, and built-in workflow. Effective collaborators are more productive. Give them tools to outmaneuver your competitors.

 

Better output, better results – Now more than ever, superior collaboration and teamwork are essential. XaitPorter is a proven platform to enable superior collaboration – with team members able to freely contribute content and ideas whether they work on-site or from home – while relying on a single-source, cloud-based repository where all content is managed. Advanced master data management ties everything together. Ultimately, this brings about better results with fewer mistakes.

 

Boost collaboration, beat the competition – The value of creating a truly collaborative environment should not be underestimated. Researchers have found that companies that actively work to leverage collaboration as an organizational skill are five times more likely to be high performing. We work with some of the most successful organizations in the world today. And now you can adopt an approach to co-authoring that makes a real difference.
