The digitalization of enterprises and the era of remote working have ushered in the need to bring remote teams together virtually, more than ever. With employees working from home for an indefinite time due to the pandemic, enabling collaboration and communication without hindrance to productivity is crucial for business continuity as well as employee engagement.
