In 2018, 70% of the people around the globe worked remotely at least once a week and it was estimated that 3.9 million Americans worked from home at least half the week. Within the IT industry, it’s a great option for companies to get high-quality development at lower rates, by having teams in a different country.

When we find something that helps us with remote teams communication, we hold on to it because good communication improves understanding; it avoids overlap, reduces the risk of tasks being left unattended to, and helps projects run faster and better.
Here’s a list of what I would call our “essentials” kit; tools that will make your life simpler.
You can read a simple summary of each one of these tools at the original blog post here: Remote Team Communication.
