Fortunately, technological innovations such as collaboration tools are shaping the remote working industry by helping employees and employers communicate, share resources, and manage remote workers. With the right collaboration tools, remote workers can cooperate efficiently to achieve the same objectives.

  • Slack- Team Communication

    Slack helps teams centralize communication among members by discarding the use of private email inboxes. Users can create both public and private channels for instant messaging. The channels can be based on projects, topics, or teams. In these channels, you can send texts, share files, and also create pins for access to all channel members.

    New members can also follow threads without reading side chats and also use the search feature to go through previous chats or find information. The software also integrates with other common work tools such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Zoom, and social media apps.

  • Zoom-Video Conferencing

    Zoom allows all teams to enjoy clear video calls. The tool is accessible to users on both desktops and mobile phones. Video conferencing is excellent because it allows you to have face-face-meetings to discuss issues, hangout virtually, and provide support.

Zoom also allows you to share your screen with other employees for support or teaching purposes.

  • Trello- Project Management Software

You can click on any card, add comments and files, and also tick off tasks. Members can also access messages and respond in real-time to help you track projects. You can also switch up the cards to prioritize tasks.

All the records seal passwords and other private data to protect employee details. The app also supports automatic payroll and invoicing based on accurate working hours.

  • GitHub- Software Development Tool

    GitHub is excellent for software development teams. The platform allows members to share ideas and build better software. With this tool, developers can track code, updates, and keep records of all changes made during the development process until full launch. What’s more, other people can also access the files and download them and make improvements to them.

  • Dashlane- Password Manager

    Without being able to directly turn to a colleague, sharing passwords becomes another challenge for remote workers.
