From R&D to Market: Enhancing Collaboration between Engineering and Product Teams with SmartSuite
Collaboration between Engineering and Product teams is crucial for bringing products from R&D to market. These teams must work together closely to ensure that products meet customer needs and are produced efficiently. However, collaboration can be a challenge, especially when teams work remotely or across different time zones.
