Descripción

Did you know that in Spain almost 2.56 million people always work from home? Since 2020, teleworking has become an option for more and more companies and workers around the world.  Working from home offers greater convenience and a better work-life balance. This has led to companies having to provide their employees with the necessary tools to fulfil their obligations, including the need to use digital platforms that allow them to communicate, collaborate and manage their time and tasks.

Below, we are going to explain in a simple way some tools that you can start using in your day-to-day work:

  1. Communication tools: these are platforms that allow workers to have a real-time conversation with each other telematically. This dialogue can be through messaging, voice call or video call.

  • Slack: is a messaging application that allows written conversations between colleagues. It is used to create different channels or groups where professionals join together and exchange opinions or information in real time. It also has a mobile application so you can stay connected anytime, anywhere.

  • Microsoft Teams: also a messaging application that allows you to connect colleagues and divide them into teams. 

The special feature of Microsoft Teams compared to Slack is that it has a calendar where you can call meetings with other users and make voice or video calls over the internet. And, like Slack, it has a mobile app.

  1. Project management tools:

These are platforms that allow co-workers and other professionals involved in a project to plan, organise and monitor tasks and activities.

  • Trello: is a tool that allows team members to manage a project and control the workloads and tasks performed on it.

It consists of creating a series of cards that, depending on the situation or the process of elaboration in which they are, they move from To Do, In Process or Done. It allows tasks to be distributed to team members and comments to be assigned.

  • Asana: is a work management software that allows different projects to be created and in which tasks and comments can be added so that team members can have all the necessary information on the guidelines to be followed.

  • Jira: is a project, task and issue management application with which any type of team, large or small, can coordinate to accomplish tasks.

 

  1. Task and time management tools:

These are digital solutions that allow the organisation of the tasks to be carried out by the members of a team in order to improve their productivity and achieve the project's objectives.

  • Todoist: is an application that allows you to create lists of the different tasks to be carried out, as well as to organise them in order of priority so that you know at all times what you have to do.

  • Toggl: allows teams to plan so that all team members know what tasks they have to do and can manage them according to a set timeline.  

 

In short, these tools enable efficient communication, real-time collaboration and access to shared resources, facilitating productivity and flexibility in remote working. Want to get the most out of teleworking? Start using these tools and improve your productivity!
