I do. It was a long time ago and the world was quite different.
I also remember the first time anyone explain to me what e-mail was. Now I’ll be honest and admit that this was a very long time ago, which goes some way to explaining my reaction which was
you mean the guy at the other end has got to have a computer too–that’s ridiculous it’ll never catch on.
The world has changed, we all have computers, we all have inboxes (which are full of spam) but would we really want to be without email–I think not.
The point is that before I had e-mail I didn’t know what I was missing, I couldn’t really see the benefits. It was fixing a problem that I didn’t know I had. I didn’t realise the benefits of being able to electronically transmit messages, documents, images, drawings or specifications instantly to anywhere else on the planet completely free of charge because I’ve never been able to do it before!
Sharing documents and managing projects online is much the same. Until you’ve tried it, you don’t realise what you’re missing.
When you communicate by e-mail, wonderful as it is, the very nature “or thread” of the conversation stays buried deep within that e-mail, typically at the bottom of someone’s inbox! Communications between two people may be straightforward but when that e-mail is copied on to three, four or more people multiple versions of documents emerge, different threads, different conversations and different information is communicated.
Managing your documents online centralises that conversation, exposes all the relevant content to the interested parties. In addition you will no longer need to sift through the garbage in your inbox, because the only people who can contribute have been invited by you. In other words no more spam! Communications become open and transparent. Staff become more efficient, mistakes are reduced life becomes easier.
And clients love it.
Invite them to your online collaboration and they will feel involved, appreciated and grateful.
