Communication with your clients is crucial for your business, so you should always try to optimize it and get all the advantages of an efficient collaboration. Here are some more tips for better results of the projects that involve a high degree of client collaboration:

1. Use structured collaboration

As far as business collaboration goes, I opt for structured collaboration. Wikis are great, but not when your team members have different roles. Some might be reviewers, others managers or even authors.

When using an online document collaboration tool with your clients, make sure it allows role-based collaboration. Maybe you don’t want the client to be able to modify everything you’ve written. Or maybe you do! But, to avoid document collaboration errors, you need that option. Not all collaborators are created equal.

2. Make sure you use a secure collaboration system

Whether you have a project with only two contributors, or an entire group working for a complex task, make sure your client collaboration software is a secure one, allowing you to focus only on the results, not on the “leakages”. This is even more important if you also have remote collaboration needs and you require a reliable system to cover them.

3. Consider a web-based collaboration tool

I’m sure you already know the advantages of working in the cloud, so you should put an online collaboration solution on your list of options. The easiest way to see if it is suitable or not for your business is to first try a free web-based collaboration tool.
