At VirtualSpace, our main goal is to help teams stay focused and work together better. We want to make it easier for teams to work without switching across different tools and apps.
We all know that using lots of different tools can slow us down. A study in 2022 shows that each person had to switch around 350 times between 22 different apps and websites. On an average day, this meant that one employee had to keep changing between apps more than 3,600 times. That's a whole lot of switching!
But there's good news – we have a solution to this! This week, we're excited to introduce some new upgrades to VirtualSpace. These upgrades will help teams switch between tasks less often and get more done.
We're also making VirtualSpace work even better with our Chat Features. This means teams can work smoothly and not waste time switching between them.
