As everyone returns to work, firmly clutching their New Year's resolutions, many are crying out for a better way of working.

327 million workers have already escaped the old methods of:

  • Dull audio conferences (1D)
  • Endless WebEx screensharing (2D)

And are returning instead to Visual Communication without the 'logistical hassle of travelling,' 3D Communication lives are progressing at a fast pace!

Communication is moving up a notch once again so here's a look at where the forerunners have headed:

4D - Any device Visual Communication - Skype for Business, (soon to be absorbed into Teams), is the market leader and growing every day.

However, the likes of Arup and other adventurous front-runners have already moved to 4D Communication:

  • They rely on knowledge sharing - it's ingrained into their business practices
  • Being able to communicate with suppliers, contractors, partners and customers effectively and efficiently
  • Running at high levels of productivity and reaching key business decisions quickly is crucial

We see 4D communication as having only 2 inherent weaknesses, and are looking instead to:

  • 5D - allowing visual communication across any platform
  • 6D -  integrating 5D communication to common workflows and systems to increase productivity

Any platform 5d c.pngArup are at 5D and if I were a betting man are most likely planning the next level of communication leap to 6D. For those of you looking for a positive resolution this year, who are currently on 1D or 2D communication; you need to get your skates on, aiming for 5D to catch up isn't a bad goal if you would like to achieve:

  • A quantum leap in productivity 
  • Faster input into key decisions from key people
  • Making better business decisions much faster, together
