Telecommuting makes it possible for individuals to work outside an employer’s location. They can choose to work from home, a shared office space or even a coffee shop. Although some individuals are able to be more productive while working away from the office, there can be some challenges. To ensure you are a successful teleworker, it’s important to be equipped with the right tools. If you aren’t already taking advantage of the following four mobile apps, you should consider giving them a try.
HootSuite: This app provides a dashboard that allows you to manage multiple social profiles and platforms from one place. With the paid version, members from your team can login to share content on behalf of your brand.
Worksnug: Sometimes you may need a new change of scenery. It may be a beautiful day or your internet may not be getting a strong signal. This app provides laptop friendly workspaces in your area. Each area is given a rating of its atmosphere, WiFi signal and noise levels.
iMeet: Just because you’re working away from the office doesn’t mean you can’t meet face-to-face with colleagues, clients or prospects. With a video conferencing app like iMeet, you can host or join a meeting from anywhere. iMeet can be used on your desktop, tablet or smartphone. The low bandwidth HD video and superior sound quality allows you to see and hear everyone clearly.
Doodle: Keeping track of everyone’s schedule can be difficult and time consuming. Doodle provides a fast and simple way to schedule meetings with multiple people. It can be used on mobile devices and across multiple time zones. It’s free, easy and doesn’t require any registration for any participants.
