The Future of Collaboration is Today!

It’s no secret that times have changed. And nowhere has the business world been more disrupted than in the workplace. According to a global survey conducted by Global Workplace Analytics, 89% of workers are now working remotely. Researchers predict that 25-30% of the workforce will be working from home multiple days a week by the end of 2021. 

To succeed today and in the future will require the ability to turn the remote workplace into a strength, and leverage virtual team collaboration and document management as distinctive competitive advantages.


Document Co-Authoring works to leverage virtual teams and document management as a competitive advantage.


One important place to start is with document co-authoring. That is the subject of a new white paper from Xait, Co-Authoring: The Future of Collaboration.


The Co-Authoring Advantage

Enterprise organizations in industries like Oil and Gas, Pharmaceutical and Life Science, and Insurance all work with a great amount of data. But the challenge is not just collecting the data; but also the ability to output that information in the form of highly polished documents. The high-stakes documents are absolutely essential to land and facilitate multi-million dollar deals.

For many organizations, the co-authoring process is fraught with re-work, redundancy and inefficiency, and it can be difficult to compete as a result. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Creating a professional business document can – and should – be an organizational skill that sets the organization apart from its competition.

Document co-authoring is a standardized and structured approach that streamlines the process and helps organizations react more quickly and effectively to opportunities in the market. Real-time authoring allows team members to work concurrently no matter where they are located – onsite, at home, or on the go. A ‘lego block’ approach to document construction brings complete and updated content to the fingertips of authors and stakeholders when they need it. And the ability to restrict or allow access to sensitive data dynamically allows co-authoring to continue with agility and efficiency without compromising security and privacy.


A Different Approach

Co-authoring is a different approach that is essential today. Here are three best practices explored in the white paper you should consider today.

Database-Driven Co-Authoring – Unlike file sharing, co-authoring employs a single-source repository where all your content is managed.

Concurrent Co-Authoring – This approach ensures that if a particular section or content is updated or changed, the revisions are included across all of the documents that are in production.

Enterprise-Wide Content Base – A structured approach to technical writing utilizing centralized content that is reflected over the entire organization.


Gain the Advantage

Document co-authoring is essential to gain and maintain a competitive advantage. Now is the time for organizations – both small and medium-sized companies and global corporations – to respond and adapt.
