Digital Tools Your Home Workspace Should Have

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone has been relegated to work-from-home setups. That is to keep things rolling in business despite the many adjustments and precautions that need to be done. Effectively making use of this space takes some strategic use of the right digital tools, though. We list some of them down here for you to check off your complete “work from home” package:

  • Cloud Sharing and Storage

This tool has already been an essential part of the office suite even during times when work was still more ‘regular’ and everyone was in the same space with each other. But now that it’s not practical to send over thumb drives or printed materials for every update, revision, or contribution, the necessity for a good cloud sharing and storage hub increases. To make sure production is still updated in real-time and can be accessed from different workstations or uploaders in real-time, it’s important to use features like file sync and share. ;

It should also be noted that remote working means not having the same network or resources that are in the office provided for. It’s vital to make use of a resource that has reliable security against viruses and data loss and has enough space for tons of uploads, no matter what device may be accessing it.

  • Communication Apps

Communication is always a key ingredient in team efficiency and getting things done correctly. Having the right applications are important for everyone to stay connected, as every person involved in any project needs to be aligned with each other. It’s also important to identify which apps work best with the work style and environment set up by any office or team, as it can help narrow down which features will be most useful.

Despite the distance and having to work on different networks, there is still a need to maintain the same pace and method in operations. Having light easy-to-install apps that are compatible with various devices from PCs to mobile phones is a core component in staying connected with different members who hold differing roles.

  • Screensharing Solutions

While some chat apps already carry this function built-in, there has been an increased popularity in software that is specifically built for screensharing and then has elements for interaction and communications. Syncing it up with any video calls is essential so that the stream still works as a logical way to give presentations and to collaborate. ;

Screensharing also opens up the field for those who have positions like leaders, teachers, and speakers. This particular solution is continuously being developed. Its role in the workforce continues to show promise even beyond the scope of the pandemic. It’s crucial to find an app that is user-friendly and customizable to how much one might want to display.

Right now, over half of employees in various industries are already working remotely. Many companies are looking into adopting this model permanently from here on out. With the possibility of its permanence, it just makes it that much more critical for companies to invest in tools for their employees to make use of and for said employees to equip themselves properly at home.
