Companies that communicate with individuals in different parts of the world have long sought to come up with new strategies to bridge the divide. People are temporarily transferring their workplace virtually nowadays, thanks to lockdowns and people working from home, and they are looking for ways to stay connected. We’re sharing our top applications for staying connected and productive even when you’re physically separated:

Zoom: for group or one-on-one video and phone calls and webinars!

Zoom has played a critical role in our organization, from one-on-one meetings to all-staff meetings to webinars. It’s simple to set up and can even record.

Every expanding organization should use communications to not just achieve its objectives, but also to meet its ever-changing needs. Zoom’s ease of use and simplicity, as well as its tiered pricing and use plans, make it easier for small-business teams to manage their time, increase productivity, and scale their businesses.

Here are the reasons why small businesses choose Zoom to help them manage everything while expanding their client base, revenue, and organization.

  1. Plans that are simple and economical
  2. A smooth transition from text to video
  3. Zoom Rooms’ user-friendliness
  4. The porting of the Zoom Phone went without a hitch.
  5. User-friendly interface
  6. Remote control and screen sharing
  7. Quality of the call and video
  8. Bringing employees together
  9. A highly effective administrative dashboard
  10. User management that is “child’s play”

Slack : a team communication and chat platform.

Slack is a messaging app for teams that is especially useful for employees who work from multiple places. You can divide your themes by organizing your messages into channels and determining which team members are allowed to join. Individuals can also communicate one-on-one for more private exchanges.

5 WAYS TO IMPROVE COMMUNICATION IN YOUR BUSINESS WITH SLACK

  1. Make a channel for blog posts about social media promotion.
  2. Slack and Google Drive integration
  3. Use the Open API to your advantage.
  4. Create a Referral System
  5. Advanced Slack credits

Google Drive : (which includes Google Sheets, Docs, and Slides) is a cloud-based storage, file-sharing, and collaboration platform.

You can make some folders private or available just to specific individuals, or you can make them public.

You and other team members can also work on the same file at the same time using Google Sheets, Documents, and Slides. Editors can watch changes take place in real-time and leave comments on individual lines or cells.

This means you can try Drive before committing to a financial commitment, which I’ll go through later in this book

  1. User-friendly interface
  2. Compatible with Microsoft Office
  3. Use a custom link to share your stuff.
  4. Keep films, PDFs, presentations, and images on your computer.
  5. SSL encryption
  6. You have a lot of possibilities with apps and templates.

Google Calendar : a great tool for keeping track of activities and meetings.

Google Calendar allows you to schedule meetings ahead of time and receive reminders for them (you can get alerts 30 minutes before your meeting days in advance).

You can also schedule meetings to occur on a regular basis. Some departments in our organization, for example, meet weekly, while others meet monthly.
