Transform the Way You Work with Collaboration Portals

Transform the Way You Work with Collaboration Portals

When COVID-19 broke out, many countries across the globe announced lockdowns to curb the virus, resulting in a massive shift to remote working and schooling. This, in turn, led to a huge uptick in the usage of team collaboration tools; for example, Microsoft Teams experienced a 40% increase in demand.

In fact, the team collaboration tools market is expected to register a CAGR of 18% over the forecast period of 2021-2026, according to a Research and Markets report.

Content and collaboration solutions – such as enterprise collaboration portals – are strongly influenced by digital workplace needs such as real-time collaboration, tracking, and sharing and are key to enhancing organizations’ productivity and streamlining processes in real-time.

Clearly, the adoption of collaboration and information management tools is even more important now for businesses to differentiate themselves and better compete in the market.

Employee Collaboration Portals in a Post-COVID World


As a virtual and global workforce becomes more common even for smaller enterprises, effective internal portals and intranets will be crucial for providing a centralized access point to business operations, processes, and people. For the distributed post-COVID workforce, employee portals will continue to play a vital role in internal communications, as well as employee engagement, satisfaction, productivity, and safety.

Trianz’ new platform, Pulse, is an employee portal solution that offers all the above. As a next-generation digital workplace, it delivers a personalized experience while enabling business continuity and valuable business outcomes with far-reaching impact.

  • View their calendars and access calls directly

  • Centralize and share documents

  • Get alerts

Transform Your Portal to Meet Your Users’ Needs


The true test of an effective collaboration portal is to see if an enterprise’s employees, customers, suppliers, and/or business partners begin and end their day with it.

This can be a reality if your portal provides access to people and expertise through collaboration; enables key business processes and access to the right information; is integrated with everything the user needs; is personalized for each user; and is easy and quick to navigate and use.
