With four offices along the West Coast, Simplexity knows about the power of collaboration. It’s common for our teams to be distributed across two or more sites, requiring extra attention to communication. We work together using a suite of online tools, such as Confluence and Jira team collaboration software, Smartsheet for shared BOM and Gantt chart management, and shared file repositories. Videoconferencing and screensharing is an essential part of daily work.
The systems and tools we have in place to collaborate between our offices extends to collaboration with our clients as well. By default, we give client teams access to the project Confluence page, which acts as up-to-date documentation for requirements, specifications, meeting notes, and shared files. Due to the multi-site nature of our work, weekly client meetings and design reviews often involve videoconferencing.
