Ideas don’t happen in a vacuum. Often they are the result of collaboration, infused with the energy that comes from teams talking and working together. But getting a team on the same page can be difficult for federal agencies challenged by geographic division, multiple time zones, and remote and hybrid work. Secure online whiteboarding and real-time situational awareness offer an innovative solution that’s the next best thing to being in the same room.
According to a Federal News Network survey from 2022, approximately 60 percent of the more than two million federal employees and four million contractors in active government service work in a hybrid environment, and 33 percent work entirely remotely. Though the pivot to get there (in the midst of a pandemic) was challenging, agencies have embraced this new normal. The push now is to identify an optimized, best-practice way for teams to collaborate securely in real time.
Bluescape has emerged as the innovative answer. The platform can be used by any team needing a modern collaboration solution, regardless of the mission.
