Circuit Comments

Re-wiring My Working Habit

Positive Comment by ucambassador
about Circuit Nov 2016

I have been using Circuit for over two years now and can honestly say it has transformed my working practices for good. This natural social collaboration tool helps me to stay current across multiple, on-going conversations by aggregating people, HD video, high-quality voice, persistent messaging, and screen/file sharing together into a single unified view. No separate apps, no separate windows or tabs, which means I remain focused on the important tasks in hand. Daily distractions have dramatically fallen.
 
During this two year period, have experienced that my ad hoc collaborations have increased by 17%, thus resulting in less scheduled meetings and also a reduction in the average meeting duration by 18 minutes (per session). However, the most beneficial element to me is the dramatic fall in the volume of internal emails I receive week-by-week has decreased by 37%.
