Poor communication is the scourge of many workplaces. In fact, according to David Grossman’s report “The Cost of Poor Communications” inadequate communication costs companies with 100,000 or more employees $62 million per year, while companies with 100 or less staffers are losing out on average $420,000 per year. Cumulatively, communication barriers lead to $26,041 in productivity loses per employee. Yet while ineffective communication plagues companies big and small, many continue to rely on Skype, email, and other tools that simply aren’t up to task.

Unsurprisingly, Carleton University researchers found out that people spent roughly 17 hours per week reading work emails in the office and at home!

The development of customized software like Bitrix24, with tools designed to aid collaboration, makes it easier for businesses to take advantage of the collaborative project management processes.
