The Gradual Challenges That The Company Had To Dealt With

  • Their employees are located across the countries and states border, maintaining cross-office communication was one of the complex issues.
  • Due to improper and insufficient collaboration between the two cross-office teams, there was a reduction in productivity.
  • The company’s resources had to travel from one regional office to another state office for handling inter-projects. This added an additional burden to companies where they had to spend 14% on business travel costs. 

The Australian-based telecommunications company had to make immediate decisions to strengthen the internal communications system with transparency in the overall collaboration operations. The company wanted to create a hub of collaboration medium that is accessible to its entire employees across the regions. They choose MirrorFly as their ideal partner to increase collaboration activities since MirrorFly provides enterprise-grade customizable Chat APIs and SDKs.
