7 free remote working tools
anyone can use during lockdown
We’re currently living in uncertain times, and finding ourselves having to change aspects of our lives that have, until now, been our day-to-day routine.
We are needing to adopt new practices in the way we live and work.
We are trying to second guess what we will need to change in the days, weeks and months ahead – and trying to plan accordingly with little sense on how successful we are being.
We are being asked to not panic; be prudent; but still be prepared.
And in the spirit of preparedness, we have complied a nifty little list of tools that you can set up right now (if you haven’t already) to make things that bit easier if you need to work from home.
(They’re also pretty handy for keeping in touch with friends and family too!)
First up, Zoom
If you need an easy way to hold remote meetings, or even check in with the family, then you need to try Zoom.
It’s one of the most popular and powerful meeting and webinar tools on the market, and has a free tier too (as long as you don’t mind breaking your meetings down into 40 minute chunks!)
You can record meetings to the cloud or your PC and you can also set up breakout rooms if team members need their own space.
