Incredible Collaboration Tools for Remote Teams

Before the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the world, remote work was on a slow but steady rise. In January 2020, about 7 million people in the United States were working from home. Thanks to coronavirus, that number has now exploded. Companies are allowing people to work from home during this pandemic.

Working remotely is the future. Whether working from home or anywhere around the world, working remotely is appealing to many people. It eliminates commutes and adds flexibility to schedule.

Many freelancers, entrepreneurs, and start-ups have figured this out—but now, even larger corporations have followed suit. Doing business around the globe, and managing a virtual team, spread all over the world, has never been easier. For instance, with the right collaboration tools, doing business in China while in the US is incredibly easy.

Below are the best online collaboration tools for remote teams.

1. Zoom

Zoom is an incredible video conferencing software that allows people to work remotely and meet their colleagues face to face. There are many video conferencing apps, but none comes close to zoom. It works consistently without shaky video or buffering. Zoom rooms allow up to 1000 participants at any one time.

2. Slack

Slack is probably the best communication app for remote teams. It is a great place where employees can get immediate feedback and connect with team members, both in groups, and one-on-one. Slack's main advantage is that it integrates many services such as Zoom, Dropbox, Salesforce, and Google (News - Alert) Drive.


Trello is a great platform that makes it easy for teams to organize and manage their projects. It is a virtual collaboration platform that organizes your projects into cards, lists, and boards. This way, you know what is being worked on, the progress of a project and who’s working on what.

4. Asana

Asana is another collaborative tool that helps remote teams to stay organized. It is a task management tool with a user-friendly dashboard. With Asana, you can assign tasks, comment on task threads, and set deadlines. It enables team members to see their tasks. That enhances efficient team management and accountability.

5. Ryver

Ryver allows you to create as many teams as possible in a single app. With Ryver, you don’t have to keep switching between different apps for group messaging, video calls, task management, and voice calls—it has everything. Ryver also integrates other services such as Dropbox, Asana, Mailchimp, Evernote (News - Alert), and Google Mail.

6. Dropbox

Dropbox is a great tool for file storage and sharing. It allows teams to work remotely to track down work, collaborate designs, and presentations, among other things. Dropbox (News - Alert) is a modern workspace, where you can store all your work-related files in one place.

7. GoToMeeting

It is not easy to host meetings when working remotely. GoToMeeting allows you to launch meetings through emails, other collaboration tools, and IM. It integrates well with other project management tools, making it easy and convenient to launch online meetings.

Remote team collaboration can work and work effectively. But it requires planning, preparation, and the right tools. Collaboration tools allow teams to work efficiently, making it easier to achieve business goals.
