Streamlining team communication

Team work is a foundation for success that transcends any realm of our lives. By working together, more informed and considerate decisions can be made to resolve issues and achieve goals. Effectively communicating with team members is essential to building a great rapport in which the synthesis of people’s brilliance and brainstorming can optimize the impact of collaborative decision making.

In order for work teams to improve their results, Icon.me is launching Canvas. The app allows team members to build a network of colleagues for respective projects in order to share ideas and inspiration. Doing so allows teams to keep a pulse on any new developments as well as to be exposed to new ideas that can reshape their perspectives and contributions.

By organizing member submitted content into a magazine like feed, taking in new links or posts from team mates can happen in near real time. This means that no idea goes unheard or unconsidered. By keeping people dialed in minute-by-minute, time can be better spent on the most current and pressing developments throughout a project.

Canvas can even be added as a Google Chrome extension so that helpful links or relevant comments can be submitted as they’re taken in. The accessibility of Canvas via Chrome allows users to contribute ideas without risking forgetting them in between team meetings. Canvas’ app is available via the iTunes and Google Play stores, meaning that Apple and Android users alike can share without having barriers placed between them from different operating systems.
