Microsoft 365 is a productivity powerhouse that ensures seamless collaboration with its comprehensive range of features. Microsoft Office has long been the gold standard of productivity suites and the majority of your clients, customers and suppliers are probably using it. This bundle will cover all of your essential office needs and it contains many productivity-boosting features and add-ons. We especially like FindTime, which helps to find a convenient meeting time for all parties without the endless back-and-forth.
LastPass allows you to share passwords without actually having to share them.
It’s a password manager tool that securely stores your passwords and makes them available across all of your devices. This way, you can create a different secure password for each website without having to reset it every time you want to log in.
Better still, LastPass means you can allow employees and co-workers to use your passwords without having to reveal them. This enables you to collaborate efficiently without risking a security breach.
Asana is one of the best collaboration softwares out there. It makes it extra easy to keep track of projects to maximise productivity. You can create to-do lists, set reminders, send requests and easily update co-workers on your progress. It’s a must-have for remote working.
If you’re constantly getting distracted by social media or online shopping, Strict Workflow is exactly what you need. The software, based off of the Pomodoro method for productivity, temporarily blocks websites of your choosing for 25 minutes at a time, forcing you to stay focused. Then, you get a five-minute break for browsing before getting back to work.
Grammarly will save you a ton of time and energy when it comes to proofreading texts, whether that’s a quick email or an in-depth project report. As well as identifying grammatical errors, this tool can help you rephrase entire sentences and use more sophisticated vocabulary in order to make your writing sound as professional as possible.
Slack is a group messaging app that allows your team to communicate quickly and efficiently in a multitude of ways, from 1:1 instant messaging to group video or audio calls. When working remotely, Slack can help you to make all of your team members feel included and ensure that no-one is left in the dark.
Last but not least we have TeamViewer, a remote access and control tool which allows you to use a remote device as though you were holding it in your hands. It’s perfect for those occasions when the files you need are stored on another device that you don’t have handy. It works on both Apple and Android devices, as well as desktops. Best of all, it’s possible to hold web meetings and collaborate with up to 300 people at once.
