5 Productivity Apps You Need to Effectively Work Remotely

I bet you would never have imagined you’d be working remotely just a year ago.  Oh, how things change quickly.

But, working remotely is more than just having a “snow day” every day.  Business needs to continue and it needs to continue effectively.

So, how do you know if your team is still productive when you can’t go into their office to chat or have a meeting to discuss projects?

The answer is clear cut; you need to modernize your daily operations by introducing some helpful apps into your everyday work life.

This shift towards working remotely has left the door open for these apps to help improve company productivity and help teams work more effective regardless of where they work from.

If you’re working virtually, consider these apps:

Slack: Slack has become the go-to app for connecting teams that work remotely. The app allows you to create different channels so you can have all your teams organized and the right people working on the right things. Features such as voice chat, group messaging, direct messaging and file sharing will all come in handy when operating your day to day business.

Dropbox: Dropbox is one of the biggest cloud storage apps available today. They give you a lot of flexibility by allowing you to create a remote place to store your files and it provides a reliable alternative to backup your data. You and your team then have access to all the information you need, whether you’re in the office or on the go.

Zoom: Zoom has quickly made videoconferencing available to the masses.  With the large scale usage as a result of the global pandemic, Zoom has provided companies the ability to stay connected, have meetings, and make virtual presentations to potential clients.  Video capabilities, screen sharing and message boards are just a few of the features included in this affordable solution.

Trello: Trello’s “boards” help you organize your projects and help visualize everything that needs to be done to more effectively track and finish tasks. You can assign team members to specific tasks and connect it to other apps like Slack and Google Drive to help keep all the content and information your team needs in one place.

Salesforce: Salesforce is one of the top cloud-based CRM software providers in the international market.  It is designed for service, marketing, and sales. The Salesforce CRM does not require any technical knowledge to set up as well as manage the same. It redefines the way businesses connect with the customers by creating a more meaningful relationship.

Working remotely means that you have to be a lot more organized and be able to coordinate with people all over the world. The apps in this list help you do just that by helping you track your projects and meet with your team.
