Building a team - where can you scrimp and where should you splurge? 
Strong teams are the key to success in any sector. Whether managing a band of IT buffs, a unit of financial whizzes, a cluster of creative designers or any other collaborative venture involving more than one individual, building up a strong team should be at the top of your priority list. To help you get the absolute most out of your team, we’ve put together a guide on areas where you should splurge, and areas where it’s OK to scrimp.


Communication – No matter how tight your budget, never cut corners when it comes to communication. All team members should have easy and instant access to every one of their fellow colleagues. Often teams aren’t always in the same physical vicinity which calls for remote collaboration tools such as ShowMyPC. Using the intelligent software, teams can engage, discuss, share and chat from anywhere in the world.

Support – Teams should always be given ample support. As well as access to the right resources, software and equipment needed to carry out tasks you should also have other less tangible systems in place. This includes stress management training, the opportunity to give feedback/make suggestions and the general peace of mind that if they need any form of assistance they can turn to their manager for support.


‘Fluff’ training – Corporate training and development has generated serious buzz and while some courses are incredibly useful, others are simply unnecessary. Before enrolling staff in courses, be absolutely certain that ROI is going to make the investment worth your while.

Over hiring – It can be tempting to over hire when initiating the team building process but at the end of the day, too many cooks in the kitchen can hinder productivity. Instead, ensure that every member of the team has a clear cut role and is able to bring valuable skills to the table. If you do feel the need to expand your workforce in the future, you can always take on one extra employee at a time or consider enlisting the help of a temporary freelancer. If you choose the latter, remote PC sharing software such as ShowMyPC is a great way to streamline the communications process.

On-the-job perks – It’s important to reward your team for their hard work but not at the expense of your business. If you’re just starting out then smaller, scaled rewards will do the trick. As your business grows, you can start to offer better rewards and on-the-job perks.

Now you know where to scrimp and where to splurge you can start building a better team, today!

Five cost effective ways to collaborate internationally 
With the rise of the internet has come the opportunity for companies to expand operations to international shores. This means that today, a plethora of businesses operate in countries across the globe. Londoners communicate with Sydney-siders, New Yorkers attend business meetings with Cape Town dwellers, Canadians take part in conference calls with Chinese colleagues and so on.

Of course, collaboration between international employees can be both difficult and expensive. To cut expenses, save time and increase efficiency we’ve come up with five cost effective ways to enhance your international collaboration efforts.

Send regular companywide updates
Creating a sense of company-wide collaboration is an essential part of building a strong team, even if members are in different geographic locations. One inexpensive yet effective way to do this is to compose and send regular companywide updates that keep every employee in the loop. A kind of corporate newsletter to announce new developments, recognise high performers and generally create a stronger international community of workers.

Invest in remote desktop sharing and meeting services
For enterprises manned by an international workforce, investing in remote desktop sharing and meeting services software is a hugely effective way to boost collaboration strategies. Instead of relying on group emails and conference calls, employees will be able to remotely share and access the desktops of their colleagues in an instant. They’ll also be able to use meeting services to attend virtual conferences with employees on the other side of the world.

Ensure contact details are readily available
Another way to create a strong international collaboration strategy is to ensure that all employees have access to the contact details of their colleagues. Direct email and phone lines will make it far easier and faster for them to ask questions, answer questions, and check facts. Company wide intranet services and employee databases already make this simple.

Launch a company intranet
It may require an initial investment of time and money but launching a company intranet can seriously augment international collaboration. It will give every employee access to a wide range of information, at their fingertips.

Armed with these five simple tips, you should be able to create a cost effective international collaboration strategy.

The Future of Screen Sharing 
Computers have unquestionably infiltrated every aspect of our daily lives. From business and banking to entertainment and travel, they’ve become central to the world as we know it. As computer technology has advanced, so too have the tools that complement it. In particular, desktop sharing has become one of the most popular ways for computer users to remotely communicate with each other. So what’s on the horizon for desktop sharing? Read on for our predictions of what’s to come…

Infiltration of all sectors

In the future expect to see desktop sharing emerge as a must have tool for businesses and service providers operating in all market sectors. As well as its current applications for corporate sectors such as business, banking, taxation and law, desktop sharing tools will also be adopted by a myriad of other markets such as healthcare, retail, science and more.

Collaboration in the workplace

Building better teams is an integral part of business growth and success. Rather than rely on group emails, presentations and conference calls for inter-team communication, desktop sharing will emerge as an efficient and effective tool for fostering excellent teamwork. The ability for employees to view and share remote desktops in just seconds will save time, boost productivity and encourage innovation.

Desktop sharing on-the-go

Could desktop sharing soon be a feature seen on the smartphones of everyday citizens? According to insider chatter, the answer is yes! Apple has recently been granted a patent which would see FaceTime double as a collaborative productivity tool where users can share screens while conducting a two-way video conversation. Furthermore, leading remote desktop support and meeting providers such as ShowMyPC are already offering Android and iPhone support across their range of packages.

Better services for users

Today, people expect more and more from technological services. Desktop sharing providers that can’t keep up with the demands of customers risk losing business at a rapid rate. To retain customers, expect to see providers rolling out better deals for customers across the board. Already, this can be seen in in services such as ShowMyPC which offer users unlimited hosting for private PCs, premium meeting support and a free helpdesk system.

With plenty of exciting new developments on the horizon, the future of desktop sharing is looking bright.
