With a market segment value projected to grow to $45 billion this year, workplace collaboration tools are booming. Video conferencing and enterprise chat applications are becoming ubiquitous in the modern office, and remote and distributed workforces will likely become even more plentiful. In fact, according to a Global Workplace Analytics study:
• Remote work has grown by 159% since 2005.
• About 80% to 90% of the U.S. workforce says they would like to telework at least part-time.
• Businesses would save an average of $11,000 per half-time telecommuter each year.
