Below are three of the best communication tools to use—all available to download for free and designed for remote access—to make working from home as efficient as possible.
Asana is a digital platform used to help teams organize,track, and manage their projects and tasks. The web and mobile-based app allows teams to input and assign individual tasks under each project, with the option to add deadlines, descriptions, and more.
Slack is a workplace communication tool for professionals to use as an instant messaging platform. It’s a web and mobile application, so you can send updates, ask or respond to questions, or share files from your desktop or on the go. You can organize different topics into “channels,” or separate conversation threads, and add team members based on which channel, or project,they should be in. It cuts down on your email, and gives team members an opportunity for a timely response. Slack also integrates with other project management software you may already use, such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Asana,Zoom, and more.
