Building partnership with your external business partners

Working together with business partners is a regular part of work. Here are useful tips on how to use LINE WORKS to work with your business partners like a team—from communication and invitation to events to sharing data! Just keep these in mind.

  • Connect to the LINE account of a member of other company
  • Create a group with a business partner who uses LINE WORKS
  • Share data with partners
  • Compile opinions of partners quickly

1. Connect to the LINE account of a member of other company

If you were thinking about using your personal messenger account to contact a business partner, there is no need. Work with your partners by connecting to their LINE accounts. This way, you can not only keep your personal life away from work, but also safely manage the work history as all conversations are stored in LINE WORKS.

2. Create a group with a business partner who uses LINE WORKS

Is your business partner also using LINE WORKS? If so, you can great an external group to work even closely with the partner. You can upload key information that everyone should know in ‘Note’, share the progress of a project in ‘Event’, and manage shared data together by uploading them in ‘Folder’.

3. Share data with partners through Drive

Using Drive is also another way to collaborate with members of other companies. Create a folder, and share the folder through a link to share files. Your partner can also freely download files from Drive like Webhard.
(Drive is only available in Basic and Premium plans.)

4. Create a survey to compile opinions of partners quickly

Do you still wait until the next meeting to hear opinions from partners or clients? Stop wasting time by creating a survey for external use, and share it via LINE WORKS or LINE. You can use templates that you previously used to save time, and see the survey results in real time for quick compilation of opinions.
