Well, now it is the turn to the tools. They are what make magic and allow us to work in a distributed manner. The choice of these can make the difference between a successful or a chaotic and inefficient work team. There are many applications to cover the whole spectrum of the needs of a team, communication, task management, time management, file sharing tools, etc. This is our selection of the we believe are most advanced and that, of course, we use in Wild Wild Web. Skype This desktop classic lets you chat, do conferencing, video conferencing, screen sharing and call landlines and mobile phones at very affordable flat rates. It also lets you associate your phone number with your Skype account so that people see your number when calling from Skype, for a more than affordable price. It has apps for all platforms. Slack This IRC on steroids is perfect to work both with your own company teams and as joint teams with the client. You can create multiple chats (channels) with different members in each, integrate with many other apps, sending files is super fast, integrates with hundreds of apps, lets you browse your message history, shows the time zones of different users and offers many other features that make this application a favorite among distributed enterprises.
