    Slack is my work friend along with few other apps. Effective collaboration is beyond apps. It's about lean scalable processes. You can read about the way we manage a distributed team in 3 countries and 4 different time zones: On top of it: we rely on our flagship product: Veamly centralizes your work in one desktop app and brings all your collaboration apps in one main feed of conversations with a unified search. You can check it out here: hope it helps :))

    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space 🧠

    It's like if every Trello card had a Google Doc. You can collaborate in real time on documents that are linked together and can be visualized as a list, kanban board, or a mind map. You can also @-mention your teammates and chat in comments.

    Cloud video conferencing and simple online meetings - best in class for audio and video calls. Very minimal to no choppy-ness and awesome features to share screen, grant remote control and recording functionalities. Super easy to access, log in and share a dial in link. I'm an advocate.

    Probably JIRA. You could manage ur task, log work,... too much features to track remote team.

    We use JIRA, hip-chat (now owned by Slack), and other Atlassian apps for product and engineering. For other collaboration, we use mainly google suite of products.

    Remote work is tough, we all know that. Lito helps my team to bring back these water cooler conversation, overcome loneliness, and inefficient communication as a remote team. We stopped messaging and started talking with each other again. It's free for up to 3 users.

    Notion Beta

    Notion is amazing for any teams, but especially remote teams. It really has everything you need - a place to collaborate on docs, share tasks, store databases, etc. There are pre-set templates so creating any of these from scratch is a breeze. It's also very easy to communicate in the app about specific things, rather than talking in Slack and referring to links.

    Twist 1.0

    More productive messaging for teams

    Kinda surprised nobody add this tool. Specially for remote folks, nothing is better than asynchronous discussions. Twist is great to help you with that! The same way I could have add Basecamp for example. But there is something more about it from my POV. Sadly I didn't had the opportunity to use it much yet, but its highly recommended!

    We've been using this with a small team and it's worked well to keep us calmer, against the likes of Slack. If you work more constructively in threads and asynchronous messaging, this is a gem!

    This lets you organize things with your teammates. Trello is like the Instagram of task management apps or the digital equivalent of Post-It Notes and bulletin boards.

    I use this with my marketing manager to navigate between our work - I create content and she manages marketing, so it's great to have a shared place to show her what I'm working on and when I'm done, she can take it and run with it! It's also free, and I ended up using it for a bunch of personal stuff and other work tasks as well.

    To collaborate with your team you need a robust communication tool that would allow team members to communicate both online and offline. I came across this cloud-based tool which would allow you to chat with your remote team members very easily. You can also send email, share documents, assign To-Do's to your team through one single platform. It handles your information with care and it gives access anywhere and at any time. It is very efficient and easy to use.

    We use this both for our community and our internal communications. It's great because we have everything on one server, and Discord also comes with voice chat so that makes our morning daily meetings much easier. Everyone just tunes into the voice channel when they're ready and that's it.
