A Look at Workstream Collaboration Applications in the Digital Workplace Today
Exploring the love-hate relationship employees have with collaboration applications
Small, mid-sized, and large organizations are deploying new workstream collaboration application software—with investments in these systems projected to total $4.8 billion by 2023, doubling the $2.7 billion spent in 2018 (Gartner). Yet, buzz about distractions, productivity interruptions, and unhealthy impacts to the workplace continue to swirl. Many employees experience love-hate feelings toward workstream collaboration applications. This can lead to increased IT support tickets and/or decisions to opt-out of usage all together. Whereas, IT teams face additional challenges in deploying these applications in a seamless and widespread way.
Unify Square research reveals love-hate findings and shares insights around the most utilized features across workstream collaboration applications, usage trends, and how they are impacting productivity, employee behavior, collaboration security, and more.

Respondents worked at organizations with at least 1,000 employees, over a range of industries, including enterprise technology, consumer technology, consumer packaged goods, education and healthcare.
