The Modern workplace is no longer limited to a confined space, but has evolved to span across buildings, regions and even continents. The need of the hour is to provide a robust, reliable and secure framework for employees to communicate and collaborate with their peers, as well as external contacts.
A key requirement of any collaborative framework is that it should be easy to use, without compromising on Data Security. If the framework becomes needlessly complex on the premise of enforcing security, it becomes cumbersome for an average user to navigate and efficiently utilize the platform.

Through the series of blog posts that are to follow, we will look at the various elements of Zoho Workplace, and how these help boost productivity.
