Teleworking became the escape for many companies during this troubled period.
Telecommuting offers a multitude of benefits, such as lower employee turnover, reduced overhead and improved productivity.
However, the implementation of an active teleworking program is not without its challenges. In fact, organizations that make the most of telework are typically those that take advantage of technological developments to keep remote workers productive and connected. If you are looking for these solutions, here are 5 apps that can help you during your telecommuting period.
TeamViewer is one of the highest-rated desktop sharing applications on the market. It allows an individual to access another person's computer remotely, greatly facilitating technical support for customers and employees. As a bonus, the application includes a permanent remote access option, so that a password is not required to solve future problems.
In addition, TeamViewer helps facilitate communication between employees. In addition to allowing companies to track worker progress, the application also allows access to files and applications and even holds online meetings. You can make a sales presentation for the entire company without leaving the comfort of your own home office. Finally, TeamViewer allows you to participate in meetings using various types of smartphones, so you don't have to worry about missing an important conversation while traveling.
Trello is an easy way to organize tasks between teams. This organization is done through cards (like post-its). Each card allows you to include attachments, checklist, delivery dates and questionnaires on decisions that have to be made. To help beginners, Trello has launched a remote work guide.
It is easy to coordinate video calls, or just voice, for teams. The non-paid version allows calls up to 40 minutes and the advantage over tools like Facebook, Skype or WhatsApp is that the free version allows calls with 100 people. Another point in favor is the fact that you can send files and manage to coordinate a meeting with the possibility of moderating turning on and off microphones and cameras of the team members.
