The Technology Behind
Breakthrough Solutioning 
 

Breakthrough Solutioning is perfect for the technology driving today’s hybrid work environment. With 20 years of experience as a remote company, we have deep knowledge of the collaboration platforms needed to engage employees in events from anywhere.

While we prefer Microsoft Teams because of its security and functionality, we can also support teams working in platforms such as Miro, Mural, Session Lab, Zoom, WebEx and others. 

In addition, we use video and screen share technologies to emulate face-to-face, in-person experiences for more effective interviews and focus groups. These technologies also provide opportunities for live, in-line collaboration on documents.  

Meanwhile, in-line chat enables discussions and the use of side-bars for breakout sessions. In-line whiteboards allow groups to present or confirm concepts, arrange and prioritize ideas, and visually engage participants. 

The result is a powerful event that delivers “in-real-life” experiences, build consensus and yield results. 

We love our clients.
