Shun e-mails in your business to work more efficiently

What are the alternatives?

Frustrated by the time wasted sorting emails and the distraction they permanently cause, some large and mid-sized companies have decided to avoid email systems. They want to communicate differently using models  based on social networks. This is their strategy!

"Oh, you want to eradicate emails? Well, good luck," says an analyst at Ovum, a UK consulting firm.

In a recent study, the American firm McKinsey reported that a person working in an office spent an average of 28% of their weekly working time reading, writing and sorting hundreds of weekly emails.

"Regardless of time and place, the emails have reached a pinnacle in communication, ", said AFP Dieter Kempf, president of the Federation of German high-tech when attending Cebit. The world largest IT and computer exhibition held every year in Hannover (Germany).

He also admits that this doesn't prevent many users to complain daily about email permanent invasion. Kempf also says "I think we can learn a lot from the technology used by social networks to build new  of communication basis within the company". We could be inspired by Facebook or Twitter, to allow employees share their ideas and documents or ask questions. Thus avoiding the need to send multiple messages with too many collaborators. .

This is what some companies want to achieve. Create a "Zero Email" environment using an internal platform similar to social networks. Business owners talk about "cleaning up" their company emails system. Comparing the approach to measures like "reducing environmental pollution after the industrial revolution."

"We are on track to become email FREE by the beginning of year 2014. Our organizations will not rely  on email for communication purposes anymore " say some of them.

With "already over 10,000 active members" on already operational platforms  such as SCompIT, "the most involved users don't use internal emails anymore." Achieving their goals just became more enjoyable and  more effective.

These business owners testify that such a new communication method has increased business productivity by up to 20%.

They are not alone pursuing this objective. Various companies like Lanvin, Deloitte and Intel, have also decided to establish a "one day per week without e-mail" policy.

Some already started this adventure alone. Of one of the pioneers of the movement is Luis Suarez. He was primarily responsible for promoting the "Enterprise 2.0" within IBM. And it has been five years since he last used an email system.

"Email is not cooperative, open or transparent enough anymore". People have developed "a lot of bad habits," explained Suarez a few days ago. He also admits that it takes a long "education cycle" to change his collaborators working habits.

In addition, some people say that the limits of this experience are already visible. "This can't be done at the domestic level (of a company) because you can change the behavior of employees. But what can you do to change your suppliers and external contacts communication habits?"
