Whether you are working from home for the first time, or your team is looking to improve remote work efficiency, the secret is to use the right tech tools to help you communicate and collaborate well. At Propr, we know that Remote Has Always Been Better, and using the right technology is a crucial ingredient in how to Work Remotely Like a Champ. Here’s a handy dandy field guide to free tools & tech to help you up your game and perform like a pro.

2. Zoom

Simple teleconferencing to help you remember what your coworkers look like, if that appeals. Bonus! Apply custom backgrounds so your team can’t see that you’re calling-in from your bed.

Keep your schedule straight, coordinate with others, and maintain your sanity. Integrations galore!

5. Dropbox

Store, retrieve, manage, and share your files with pesky coworkers and needy clients. Easy access!

A super simple tool for keeping track of your time and expenses, so you don’t waste either. Time flies. Keep track!
