1.) Slack – Best business chat tool out there.
2.) Trello – Most simple kanban tool I know. All others focus too much on developers IMO. Trello is for the business user.
3.) Lito – for voice communication. Helps us to feel closer and brought back these water cooler conversations. Free for up to 3 users.
4.) Box – for file management. Best price. Dropbox is so expensive.
5.) G-Suite – Shared calendar and Docs. If you do not use G-Drive it's simply free.
Hope that helps.
@iulimel25 G-Suite to work collaboratively on Docs, Sheets, Slide; Google Drive/Dropbox for file-sharing; Google Calendar as a scheduler; Basecamp for activity tracking/to-do lists; Zoom.us for conference calls; Slack for team communication are some of the tools that I use for remote-working.
@iulimel25@tejaskinger Huge fan of Basecamp for us as we've moved away from Slack. Is there a reason why you prefer using Google Drive/Dropbox for file-sharing or Google Calendar as a scheduler given Basecamp's all in one system?
@iulimel25@udayrsingh No particular reason. We use G-Suite and Gmail for work, so I guess it just made sense to with Google Drive, apart from it being a frictionless method.
Our internal security settings however sometimes makes it difficult for people outside of our G-Suite network to view files when we share files with them over Google Drive, that's when I use DropBox.

@iulimel25 We have a team in the UK and one in Poland, so we use a lot of tools for easy collaboration. We developed a product called Yack.net which allows for easy video meetings, because it transcribes our calls and makes them replay-able and searchable which certainly helps with finding what was said and when. We also use the GSuite as everyone can collaborate easily. Everyone has a Google account (Business) so Drive is very handy. Finally we use JIRA to make sure our developers are working on the correct projects, and managers can see how everyones time is spent each day.
@iulimel25 Lead Honestly (https://leadhonestly.com) is my go to for team management, specifically as a leader. It helps facilitate all of our 1-on-1 meetings, provides a pulse of how the team is doing, and tracks action items we need to do.
@troopmessenger most important aspect of making remote work is having a trusting relationship between employees and their manager. Communication is key to your success. Not having a clear communication between you and your team can greatly affect your progress, even more so if you are managing a remote one.

@iulimel25 Zig is built for flexible teams. We're opening up more beta slots soon - you can sign up right here Product Hunt! It's designed for digital creative work- DCC and interactive. You can set schedules, track progress, manage teams, message, and even work with freelancers or other companies. We built it around team flexibility first. We'll also be integrating with creative tools like Photoshop and Sketch as tightly as we can.
@iulimel25 Slack and GSuite have been very beneficial to me in managing my team remotely. Slack helps in managing communications with the team and GSuite has been extremely beneficial in sharing docs, sheets, files, emails with the team. It is all because of these tools that distance does not become a hurdle in my team's communications. :)
