The asynchronous communication technique is a physical layer transmission technique which is most widely used for personal computers providing connectivity to printers, modems, fax machines, etc. There need not be any timing relationship between successive characters (or bytes of data). Individual characters may be separated by any arbitrary idle period.
Asynchronous transmission of a series of characters
Redesigning business communication Cathy emails Tom about the contract from a secure email ID which takes her only 5 min Asynchronous Cathy tried to reach Tom for nearly an hour before she gave up. Tom was traveling on business and could not attend the call. Synchronous Research shows that as far as quality of communication is concerned(ie. Whether communication definitely leads to the effective transfer of information) there has been no significant differences between the two forms of communication.
If Cathy needs to explain to Tom why they need to negotiate the contract at a certain value, then she should set up a face-to-face meeting with Tom. But if Tom already has information on the commercial details and she only needs to tell him what would be the final price, she will be better off using asynchronous communication!
User case study A large publishing house deployed the asynchronous voice communication solution from Voice Snap: Aim : To connect their feet on street sales men who travel across states with little or no network coverage but who must report to the central office all their daily sales summary. Challenge : Most of these sales men are obviously never at the same place for a considerable duration of time and do not work the traditional business hours. They also have a diversity of languages which is usually a barrier when they attempt formal business communication reports(this is not their core competency anyway)
