@iulimel25 A combination of Zenkit and Slack. Slack is great for communication and Zenkit is a project management SaaS solution. Check it out here https://zenkit.com

@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 What do you like about zoom over appear.in?
@iulimel25 @growwithlogan TBH I haven't tried Appear.in. We moved from WebEx to Hangouts to finally Zoom. And out of these three, Zoom has been the best so far.

@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 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 Tonkean! Your can track virtually anything in Tonkean, but remote team tracking is a common use-case. There's even a template for it: https://tonkean.com/templates/
@iulimel25 Salesmate is the best tool for sales teams and having streamlined communication at one place. For remote teams, the collaboration of Salesmate and Slack does the work.

@iulimel25 While we don't use it, I consistently hear Hubstaff recommended for remote teams.

@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 JIRA and Confluence for collaboration and task management, also use Mpp for scheduling, Power Point and excel for some admin tasks

@iulimel25 I think slack is a great communication tool for small work teams, remote or not.

@iulimel25 Lito is one of the best! getlito.co
@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 @vedranrasic What do you like about zoom over appear.in?
@iulimel25 @growwithlogan never used nor compare to appear.in. I just like Zoom compared to everything else I used before. GoToMeeting is fine too so as GoogleHangouts.
@iulimel25 I echo everyone else with Slack and G-Docs...but I have to give it up for Zoom. Allows me and my team to meet face-to-face in a consistent way.

@growwithlogan I haven't used appear.in actually! Do you have some insight into the differences?
Upwork + HipChat + BitBucket + Asana + Zoom + Invision

I see that everyone uses the same ones as we do: Slack and G-Suite for daily routine, Jira to organize the workflow and some very specific for designers.

@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. :)

@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.
@iulimel25 I've recommended a swag of tools at https://softwareforprojects.com but you'll find products like Asana, Glip, Podio, Teamwork and Trello useful.
