Spanish American War
Welcome back to the final installment of our mini-series on how Mikogo could have been useful at certain points in history.

Project Management KeyboardToday’s business is increasingly globalised, with companies operating out of multiple offices in different cities or even countries. Remote working has also grown in recent years thanks to the prevalence of mobile devices and the rise of the cloud enabling employees to work as effectively away from the office as they can at the office. This kind of work is well suited to individual employees, but could pose problems for teams that need to work closely together on a project. Project managers need to have oversight of their team at all times and be able to communicate freely with their colleagues; something that might be made difficult by a globally dispersed team.
So what can enterprise cloud collaboration tools do to help?
