With team members often spread across the globe it can be a real challenge for modern-day companies to manage the reality of a global workforce working together as one. It’s essential that teams are all working on the same spreadsheets, email accounts and chat tools at the same time otherwise inefficiencies are inevitable. Thankfully, help is at hand in the form of iPad collaboration apps.
With businesses spread far and wide nowadays, a lot of iPad collaboration software has cropped up, designed to help manage the logistics and work on projects with others wherever you are. Some cloud-based collaboration applications have iPad apps, while others that don’t have web clients that work well on iOS.
I’ve learned two primary things in the brief year I’ve owned an iPad 2; an iPad isn’t really a good substitute for a computer in everyday work, and iPad’s are brilliant supplements to everyday work. There is much I do on the computer that is significantly more time consuming with the iPad (if it can be done with it at all), but because of the plethora of specially designed productivity tools and business oriented applications, it’s perfect for taking into a meeting, having on my lap at a conference, or even presenting from (when that necessity arises).
Sketchshare is one of those apps that strives to make the iPad a perfect companion and supplement for your “full-time” computer. It’s designed to do one thing well, collaborative sketching, with added features that make it attractive for a variety of different work and business environments.
