Tech Tuesday: Top collaboration tools for remote teams


The remote work revolution is upon us. Studies touting increased productivity and employee engagement are fueling a surge in remote work arrangements.

This shift isn’t just about empowering employees; it brings significant cost savings for companies too. For designers and developers, remote work is becoming the norm, according to the InVision Blog. This trend highlights the need for fostering a collaborative spirit despite physical distance. Companies must go beyond seeking experienced and self-motivated professionals.

Today’s remote teams require tech-savvy individuals who understand the importance of collaboration in a virtual environment. By building teams with both technical expertise and a collaborative spirit, companies can not only survive but flourish in the ever-changing world of remote work.

In today’s edition of tech Tuesday, we look at our selection of collaboration tools fuel productivity in a scattered workforce.

Dashboards and real-time data-based insights allow teams to make informed business decisions, quickly adapt to change and strategically prioritise workload. With increased visibility and establishing one source of truth, teams can effectively communicate and boost collaboration to drive business impact.
