Top 8 Tech That Businesses Are Using for Remote Work

As we venture into the digital future, more organisations are happy to keep their teams working remotely. 

While this may seem like an easy shift, it does require certain resources to make it sustainable. Fortunately, there are plenty of tools and software available to facilitate a smooth remote work experience. 

Let’s take a look at some of them: 

Video Conferencing Tools 

Video Conferencing Tools

Tools such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams are indispensable nowadays. They help establish continuous communication between employers and remote workers. 

These tools also connect your remote workers with their office counterparts if you’re adopting a hybrid work setup

Overall, video conferencing tools make face-to-face communication possible, which leads to successful interactions between employees, team members, and clients. 

Collaboration Platforms 

Collaboration Platforms

Aside from communication tools, you also need to invest in a collaboration platform such as Slack or Microsoft Teams. These provide your remote workers with different ways to coordinate when it comes to certain tasks. 

For instance, Slack allows you to create multiple channels, depending on how many projects or teams you have. 

This way, collaboration becomes easier since everyone is on the same page. Literally. 

Remote Access Tools 

Remote Access Tools

WFH is akin to working from anywhere. Hence, it’s important for your employees to have remote access tools. 

Simply put, they should be able to access the business’ IT systems in case they need certain files and tools. 

Project Management Tools 

Project Management Tools

Encourage your remote workers to stay on top of every project with project management tools. 

You can start by providing tools such as Asana, for instance. This software has a range of functions and features that allow your remote workers to track, assign, and monitor tasks. 

Moreover, you can also connect it to other tools (or more) to help your team keep everything running. 

Scheduling Tools 

Scheduling Tools

Many companies closed up their offices and shifted to remote work. However, quite a few still require an office space from time to time. 

Fortunately, having an office scheduling tool can facilitate this. 

If you need to book an office sporadically, some new tools allow you to book an office space or meeting room sporadically. Just provide your required date and voila, the space is yours for that particular time. 

Security Solutions

Security Solutions

Remote work and data security should go hand in hand. When you’re running a remote company, you should have the tools in place to keep your information and operations secure. 

Since your employees are working remotely, there are extra risks that accompany allowing access to different IP addresses. 

Enter digital security tools. 

Firewalls and antivirus software, as well as VPN’s, will help you protect your data. Thus, don’t forget to ask your IT department to set up secure data and privacy settings before enabling access. 

If you have the resources, you can also provide individual work devices to your remote workers for additional privacy and security. 

Monitoring Tools

Monitoring Tools

If you feel the need to track your workers’ progress, you can install monitoring tools to keep track of their activities. 

Most, if not all, of the tools, record mouse clicks as well as keystrokes from the employee’s device. 

They also provide reports on which websites were visited and activities that were carried out during the workday. 

Remote Staff, for instance, has its own remote work monitoring carrying out all the aforementioned functions…and then some. *wink*wink*
