What is Horizon Collaborate?
Collaborate is a multi-functional, interactive software which can revolutionise the way we host conferences, meetings and communication within the workplace.
The platform is a one-stop-shop to Horizon communications, allowing you to streamline your landline, laptop, and mobile together with ease.
Horizon has thought about every aspect of communication for business and put it all under the one app. Just some of the many features available include;
Sync all Horizon phone calls on one online platform
Streamline your communications by syncing various devices to your Horizon account. You are no longer tied down to a landline! You can sync your phone to your Horizon account and you’ll be able to pick up calls from your landline on your selected device.
Group pick up
Never miss a call again! Create a call group and if you are unable to take a call to your direct line, one of your selected colleagues can take it for you. There are various options that allow you to decide when your colleagues will be notified of the call.
Audio & video conferencing
With audio conferencing, you can add up to 50 people to your room at any one time, or for video conferencing, it’s up to 15 people.
Both services give you the power to add, remove and mute selected parties within your room. Which is essential for upholding confidentiality and streamlining communications.
Professional instant messaging
Are you tired of waiting hours to get a response to your emails? Collaborates instant messaging feature allows you to get quick time responses from colleagues without needing to pick up the phone.
On the application, Collaborate gives you the option to screenshare in real-time. This can be a great feature internally. However, it’s important to be aware that you are responsible for the data you share and if you are sharing externally, a great deal of caution will need to be taken to ensure GDPR compliance.

Why choose collaborate?
This one-stop-shop to communication has many benefits, including;
Promote effective communication
Communication is the key to success. This is a statement that has rung true for a number of decades and will continue to be true as long as people are employed by companies.
9/10 employees spend 20% of their time outside the workplace, there are a number of reasons for this, but it can mean that you are inaccessible to both customers and colleagues.
Improves remote working standards for employees
Remote working is at the forefront of the modern workplace. Many businesses have found that when they introduce remote working, there is a surge in productivity, morale and employee wellbeing.
However, only one third of remote workers are provided with collaborative tools that they can use on their mobiles. Which can have the opposite effect and actually reduce productivity, which is one of the main problems that business owners face when it comes to remote working.
Streamlined remote conferencing
Long gone are the days that you had to get everyone in the same room to hold a conference or meeting. Video conferencing isn’t a new thing, but Horizon has made video conferencing accessible from anywhere. You can switch between devices, so if you need to leave the office in the middle of a conference, you can without having to leave the call.
Collaborate is a more efficient solution
We aren’t going to deny it, there is a wealth of collaborative technologies out there. What makes Collaborate different? You get everything on the one application. Many companies have an application for instant messaging, a headset for calls and even another application for conferencing. Constantly jumping between applications can be counterproductive and time-consuming, Collaborate gives you all these features and even more, all streamlined into the one, easy-to-use application. 80% of workers need to work with some sort of virtual team, 40% of these workers feel frustrated by complex communications. Horizon helps solve this issue.
Improved customer experience
Effective and transparent communication between yourself and customers is essential for providing a good customer experience. A study has shown that 86% of customers are willing to pay more for a better customer experience.
A clear line of communication is beneficial for both you and your customers and can allow you to form better relationships.
