It’s hard to know where to start when building a remote team. Sometimes it is just as important to just understand the different tools that you need to make it happen.
There are hundreds of technology resources that help virtual teams get things done. In order to keep it simple, we are listing our favorite resources by the following categories:
- Project Management
- File Sharing
- Virtual Meetings
- Document Creation Tools
We will be adding more information about all of our favorite tools in the coming weeks. Here is a list of tools to check out.

Project Management Tools
Having a project management tool is really the most important tool in our book. Each of the below tools has its benefits. It depends on what’s important to you. For example, if time tracking is important, you might look at ProWorkFlow as a PM system. If having a simple mobile project management tool, you might look at Wrike, Trello or Asana.
- Microsoft Project
Our team is chatting ever hour about the projects they are working on during the day. It’s important to have a central hub for this communication. We are Slack users – but love a lot of these tools.
- WebEx Teams
- Microsoft Teams
- Blackboard Collaborate
File Sharing Resources
We’ll be honest – Google Drive is our favorite. You can work on documents together in real-time. We’ve shared a few of our other favorites for securely sharing and storing documents.
Virtual Meetings & Video Conferencing
We are Zoom users. We jump on this tool multiple times a day sometimes just to get ideas for a project we are working on. Also, since our clients sometimes prefer other tools – we know all about video conferencing for remote teams. Here are a few of our video conferencing tools.
- Join Me
- Google Hangouts
- HubSpot Meetings
- Adobe Connect
Document Creation Tools
