Thanks to the evolution of new technologies and the access to Internet, physical distance is no longer a problem to perform your working tasks.
Teleworking has meant a revolution for companies, who can count with a great team deployed anywhere in the world, without having to worry about working space.
If you’re one of them, you likely already understand how having the right tools for the job can increase productivity and get the most out of the arrangement.
1. Screen-Sharing App
Some of the best ideas come from employees working on documents together. However, that can be challenging when one employee is across town or even across an ocean. With a screen-sharing app like Join, you can share a screen with as many co-workers as you need. And, if you’re the boss, screen sharing lets you essentially do the equivalent of stopping by employees’ cubicles to check in on their progress.
2. Turn Receipts Into Data
If you can convince your boss to let you work from home, it’s likely you can finesse your way into using an expense- and document-tracking service that actually caters to the telecommute crowd. Shoeboxed is just that tool, giving remote employees the ability to stuff a prepaid envelope with all their paper clutter and drop it in the mailbox. Documents are then scanned and sent to a secure location on the web (where Accounting can easily access them).
3. Track Your Time
When your team works remotely, you need to have a certain time control to know how much time they dedicate to their working days. Toggl is the tool for doing just that. The simplest time tracker to help you get things done.
