Remote work - IQeon

A streamlined work of any project team depends not only on the expertise and responsibility of its participants, but also on tools that ensure the effective completion of tasks and successful interaction of specialists. We have prepared a list of services that will help you to organize a remote work during quarantine, as well as to relax after completing tasks and maintain mental health.

  • Work organization

Task managers are used to plan tasks, both short-term and long-term. Here you can assign projects to team members, tasks for them, and specify a deadline. Thanks to such services, not a single small task will be lost. By the way, you can evaluate the speed and quality of their implementation using time trackers.

Jira. An online platform that helps to create tasks and appoint a performer, group them into common projects, make notes and attach files to tasks. There are some popular analogous such as Asana and Trello, which are powerful tools in organizing a truly virtual office.

Rescuetime or Toggl. These time tracking services help to evaluate the effectiveness of task completion, or rather, how many hours you spent on a particular task.

  • Communication

For the success of a virtual office, it is important to always stay in touch. Here corporate messengers, applications for online conferences, integrated chats in task managers come to the forefront, where you can quickly solve all sorts of issues.

GoToMeeting. A convenient tool for holding online meetings with your team. Here you can demonstrate the screen, make notes on images and record conversations.

Slack. One of the most popular instant messengers for corporate communication. It allows to create several channels with different topics so that the common news feed doesn’t become spammed.

Zoom. One of the most popular platforms during quarantine. The application for holding online conferences allows you to organize meetings for up to 100 participants for free.

  • Work with files

Cloud storage will greatly facilitate workflow for teams that are actively involved in working with files and text documents. So, it’s much easier to share the link with colleagues than to upload a file for downloading and editing each and every time.

Google Drive. A service that includes tools for creating text documents, tables, presentations and storing files. The main advantage is the ability to work with documents by the whole team simultaneously.

Monosnap. An application that allows to take screenshots, upload them to the server and share the link with other people. It is very useful when you need to point out a bug or discuss a particular interface element.

  • Health

The transition to remote work greatly affects health, because it leads to the lack of frequent walking and human communication. In the absence of rest and sport, workers soon have back pain, sleep deprivation and the first signs of depression.

Stretchly. A great app with built-in reminders of long and short breaks. With an audible signal, the application alerts you to take mind off things, drink water, stretch your legs or arms, take a break for lunch.

Calm. A popular service for meditation, which is known for audio recordings created by famous people. So, you can take a break from work and regain your breath by listening to Matthew McConaughey's voice or soothing music from Lindsay Stirling.

Nike Training Club. An application from the giant Nike, which offers training programs running from 15 to 45 minutes. A great way to stretch your tired body.

  • Self development

Don’t forget to devote time to self-improvement!

MasterClass. The website offers online classes on a wide range of subjects taught by leaders in their fields. Gordon Ramsay reveals the basics of cooking, Martin Scorsese shares the secrets of filmmaking, and Penn and Teller teach real magic. More services for self-education can be found in our previous article.

IQeon.com. You can take a break from a hard working day by visiting gaming PvP platform with games that develop mindfulness, reaction speed, memory and general erudition. And after setting a new record in your favorite game you can get a digital asset on the account for outstanding achievements!

Spending this tough time for the whole world can be useful. Effectively plan your working day and don’t forget to free up a little extra time for yourself and your nearest and dearest.
