As we march forward in 2020, schedules are becoming busy and workloads are stepping up. For virtual and flexible workers; working from home, serviced offices or coffee shops, there is still a need for administrative assistance and conveniently, there are a plethora of apps that can help.
Here’s a pick of some of the most useful apps available to help with virtual or flexible working.
- Asana and Slack
Asana is a web and mobile app that helps project team members to organise, track and manage their work. It allows you to delegate responsibilities, carry out two-way conversations and keep track of project progress. Asana ensures teams are up to date with project progress at all times.
Like Asana, Slack is a useful app for collaboration between a number of flexible workers who are working on the same project. Slack streamlines your project management by aiding communication, task assignment, and providing a full overview of the status of your project.
- Google Drive
Google Drive is a tool that as a virtual worker, you can’t do without. Save all your work on your Google Drive (if you already have a Gmail account, you already have a Google Drive account) and you’ll be able to access it from anywhere. Work on your Google Drive can be easily shared with team members and clients. Using Google Drive eliminates the risk of losing all your work on a laptop should it be lost, stolen or broken. With all your work saved on the Google cloud, it is 100% safe.
Zoom is a video conferencing app that also allows users to share screens. This is a very useful tool for remote workers who need to ‘virtually meet’ with clients or colleagues or for when there is a need to demonstrate something using a screen. It can also be used for training purposes.
Dropbox is a file hosting service that offers cloud storage and file synchronisation. It allows you to store all your files safely and share them with chosen team members or clients.
- Wi-Fi Map
This app is great for remote workers who work in different locations and want to use free wifi, rather than using up all their data. It contains a map with over 100 million wifi hotspots along with login credentials.
Virtual working can be made easier with a few easy apps such as those outlined above, as well as the use of Virtual Plans which will allow the use of a prestigious mailing address, local telephone number and even access to meeting rooms. Workhub’s range of Virtual Plans are great for Virtual workers who want a Dublin mailing address and access to state of the art meeting rooms on an ad hoc basis.
