1. An Online Whiteboard
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, many businesses, teams, organizations and private projects were “moved” online. And, as we all know, online gatherings and discussions of problems are not really the same as the one we had before. However, the entire world started focusing on creating solutions, and one of the most convenient solutions is the online whiteboard.
No matter what it is that you want to present as a problem or a solution, an online whiteboard will make it easier to do so. Sometimes you have to visually explain or describe a certain problem, and previously we could do this with hand gestures, but now that we’re all stuck at home and we have to explain things and communicate through the internet, an online whiteboard makes it so much easier.
What’s even better is that these applications advanced quite a lot during the past few months, so now any member of your call or virtual meeting can take control of the online whiteboard whenever they want to present something themselves.
2. Voice Calls on a Reliable Platform
Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom and any other platform that’s commercially used nowadays for meetings and other similar activities will drastically improve your team’s performance. Texting is just way too complicated when you have a lot to say to your teammates. Consider implementing any of these in your workflow and you’ll for sure see a lot of productivity increase, especially if you are the type of business that depends on regular and honest communication between your and the rest of the team.
3. Task Assignment Workplace
Asana, Monday and all the other similar virtual task assignment boards will make sure that none of your team members forgets about a certain task or a goal. But, that’s not all. They can update the progress of these tasks and be open about their meet of deadlines in realtime, allowing the rest of the team members to organize better and adjust their expectations. This is an absolute must-have for any business operating during the covid-19 pandemic.
4. Google Docs
Google Docs allows group access to spreadsheets, text documents and a lot more, and it’s so easy to use. We suggest it as a great solution for any business who works with any type of virtual documents. This is powered by Google so you won’t have any issues with compatibility or availability. As long as you are using Google Chrome you are able to use this service as well. Google Docs makes everything so much easier because every member can see the files updated in real-time.
5. Cloud Storage Platforms
Last but not least, if you are a smaller business and this pandemic caught you completely off-guard and you don’t have any servers available for document or data storage, cloud storage platforms such as Google Chrome, Git Hub, Unity Collaboration, One Drive and tons of others will help you out for just a small symbolic price.
