6 Best Collaboration Tools for Your Digital Team

In today's work environment, team dynamics have changed quite significantly. Companies now work both in-house and virtually. With the evolution of global teams, it has become important for companies to use collaboration tools so that they can communicate effectively with their remote workers. 

Skype (News - Alert)

This is one of the most commonly used instant messaging and audio/video calling apps that is used by companies today to communicate with their employees. Skype is not only a quick and reliable application, it also allows multiple team members to exchange ideas or have online meetings through conference calls. You can even give presentations online or conduct online training session through the help of the screen sharing feature offered by Skype. While the majority of Skype's features are completely free, you can also use the app as a VOIP phone by paying a very nominal amount to make local and international calls. 

Dropbox (News - Alert)

This is a powerful tool that provides 2GB of free space to individual users and 1 terabyte of space to business users. You can upload files, videos, and images, and share these documents with your team members in any part of the world. Dropbox is more or less a virtual hard drive, and the best part is that you can share files with project members and managers without filling up any space in your personal computer. 


This is one of the oldest and most popular work-management platforms used by companies today. Asana enables companies to assign tasks, track employee progress, set up deadlines, upload task-related documentation and more. Asana is a great tool to organize company tasks project-by-project and then through subtasks. Team members can add tags, post comments to update status related to a specific task, and put in any information that is deemed relevant to their work. This is a great tool for collaborating with both in-house and remote workers. 


Simpplr is an employee intranet software that connects employees in different parts of the world with each other. Companies can customize Simpplr by using its various digital solutions. They can connect and communicate with employees, personalize their experience, and use the content management system as well.


TeamViewer is another excellent collaborative software that allows companies to communicate with remote workers, share desktop, conduct online meetings and web conferencing, and exchange files between different work computers. It is compatible with most operating systems and is an excellent software to use for companies who need remote control of computers and collaboration with global team members and clients. 


This is an excellent time tracking software that allows companies to track employee work performance through activity reports and screenshots. Not only does it make things easier for managers to monitor remote workers, but it also provides remote employees with an easy way to claim and invoice their employer for the hours worked. Easy invoicing and automated payments make this an easy-to-use and reliable tool that makes payroll management much easier for HR. 

All of the above tools are a great way to keep your digital team focused, collaborating, and more efficient.
