Want to know the secret to growing successful remote content teams? Good document collaboration tools.

Choosing the right one makes it easy to create and work on projects with others in real time. It will also help with document organization, providing a repository to create an accessible central knowledge base.

Let's explore the best document collaboration tools, dive into their pros and cons, and highlight the features you should look for.

The importance of virtual document collaboration (post-pandemic)

Remote work saw a boom during the pandemic when many professionals transitioned to working from home. But, despite offices reopening, remote work isn’t going anywhere. In fact, 85% of those who worked remotely say they want hybrid work moving forward.

Another survey of 9,000 workers reached the same conclusion. In a post-pandemic setting, 83% agreed the hybrid work model would be optimal.

The takeaway? Virtual collaboration is here to stay. However, the right tools make all the difference between how successful your hybrid (or fully remote) work endeavor is.

Besides facilitating real-time teamwork, document collaboration tools improve team productivity by:

  • Serving as dedicated virtual workspaces to coordinate all content production efforts
  • Providing a central repository for accessing all ready-to-use, referenceable content
  • Giving overviews of the pipeline, who’s working on what, and project progress
Need to Know: GatherContent allows you to get everyone on the same page with cloud-based, real-time content collaboration.

Features that enhance virtual content collaboration

What should you look for as you select a collaboration platform for your team? A tool that goes beyond just online document creation, editing, and comments. A tool with the following collaboration features:

  • Ease of use so adopting the tool is a breeze
  • Activity log to see what’s happening on a given project at a given time
  • Pipeline overview for a complete picture of which projects are in the works
  • Multiple integrations to automate processes and reduce manual work from your plate
  • Central repository to find any necessary content from a single, up-to-date content library
  • Autosave, which allows you to focus on content production while the tool handles all the nitty-gritty details
  • Customizable templates to ensure consistency across your content production efforts
  • Notifications for alerting teammates when their attention is required so nothing falls through the cracks
  • Commenting and user tagging to coordinate writing content, editing, sharing insights, and so on

Jump-start project management quickly with content templates (such as templates for blog posts, social media content, case studies, and more).

GatherContent Content Templates
Customizable templates keep content formats and styles consistent across contributors

Essentially, these templates help maintain consistency in content and messaging. But they can assist with more. For example, when using these templates, you can easily onboard new hires, contributors, and freelancers.

Use the embed feature to include in-line instructions and checklists, such as notes on the style guide. This reduces the need for heavy edits while making it easy for content creators to do their job.

Embedded Style Guidelines in GatherContent
Embedded style guidelines in GatherContent templates keep your content on-brand

With your project-based templates ready, easily assign tasks to different team members by tagging them.

Assigned Content in GatherContent

My Assignments in GatherContent
Assignees can view all tasks they’re responsible for in GatherContent

You can easily add comments and tag users within each document.

Furthermore, you can change the document’s due date and status based on your content workflow. For instance, your workflow might include steps such as "draft," "in review," "final edits," and "ready to publish."

Changing the status gives you a bird’s-eye view of each project’s status in the workflow as well as a complete overview.

Project Status Tracker in GatherContent
Tracking project status allows you to keep on top of every piece of content and identify production issues early

‍By adding due dates, assignees can stick with the production schedule. You can see an overview of the pipeline in calendar format, too.

7 alternative document collaboration tools

1. Google Docs

Google Docs is another easy-to-use document collaboration software. It comes with templates and blank documents to help you get started.

Easily collaborate on document editing with Gdocs using tags and comments (comment history available in a tab in each document). Work on each document in any of the three modes: Editing, Suggesting, and Viewing.

Alter these permissions for team members as needed. For example, give only viewing access to one and editing access to another. All this is possible with shareable links that Google Docs creates when you share documents and folders.

Similarly, you can share folders—not just documents—with Microsoft 365. Within documents, co-authors can collaborate by making real-time edits, leaving comments, and tagging users.

  • Doesn’t offer as many integrations as other tools
  • Some features such as user permissioning, SAML single-sign-on, and unlimited version history are only available on the Enterprise plan

💰 Pricing: The Team plan is $10 per user per month, and there's also an Enterprise plan with custom pricing.

💰 Pricing: Starts at $10 per user per month (three users minimum) for the Business Starter plan.

7. Bit.ai

Last but not least, there's Bit.ai, the new kid on the block compared to the other tools on our list. But, although it's not as well-known, this tool is a powerful one. In fact, it claims to be "the world's most powerful workplace and document collaboration platform."
