IT teams and Internal Comms don’t always see eye-to-eye. But that’s often because IT and IC don’t speak the same work language. Technical jargon often goes way over our heads, and IT doesn’t really understand internal communications strategies. We’re here to help change that. Use our guide to evaluating internal communication technology providers to get started.
