Tools to Working from home in Sri Lanka.


image

Working from home is getting more important in these days due to lockdowns in many countries. Following free and paid tools helps you to manage your work efficiently at home.

Skype

We all know Skype for conference calls, instant messaging with clients or chat rooms. But if you haven’t been using it for business, you may have missed out on some new functionalities. Record Skype calls to capture key decisions, and use live subtitles to read the words spoken. Easily share presentations, images, or anything on your screen during a call with integrated screen sharing. Access one skype account across multiple devices—even Alexa!

Slack

Slack is the communication tool that brings remote teams together. The platform organizes conversations into channels, which team members can join and leave, as needed, so nobody receives messages or notifications irrelevant to them. Conversations can also be had in threads, which keep messages outside of the main channel so chats don’t get in the way of main topics and projects.

Key features

• Instant messaging: Live communication between every team member for seamless collaboration.

• Statuses: Users can set availability statuses to focus on individual tasks as needed.

• File sharing: Drag-and-drop file sharing for PDFs, images, videos and other common files types.

• Voice & video calls: Voice and video calls directly from within Slack.

• Screen sharing: Allows team members to show their work to others in real-time for stronger collaboration.

Zoom

Zoom is a suite of video conferencing and communication tools designed for remote teams, virtual businesses conferences, webinars and other corporate purposes. We use Zoom for our virtual meetings, which we can use to run video and voice calls, but it’s capable of much more than this.

· Webinars: You can also use Zoom to host webinars.
