Tolko’s sales department needed to keep track of available lumber for sale from various manufacturing facilities throughout Canada. The sales team was using several whiteboards to share information and track sales. An impending office move required the sales team to look for an alternative solution that would be able to store the sales tracking information.
After trying another solution unsuccessfully, the sales team came across EditGrid and determined it met their collaboration needs. By using EditGrid, each member of the sales team now easily updates an online spreadsheet that all members of the team can access.
By utilizing a collaborative tool such as EditGrid, Tolko’s sales team no longer wastes time trying to keep a whiteboard updated. Each team member can easily access the online spreadsheet directly from their desktop, and all have access to the same information in real time.
