This is the third in a three-part series focused on useful tools you and/or your company can utilize to improve work-from-home communication.

COVID-19 has shaken the business world since the start of 2020. Nearly a month into 2021, in-person gatherings are still, at the very least, limited, if not entirely non-existent. This poses a problem for companies nation-wide because the gathering of teammates is important — vital, even — for brainstorming, planning, and comradery.

Fortunately, applications like Zoom make these meetings possible while in-person get-togethers remain classified as unsafe.

Zoom: When In-Person Meetings Are Not Possible

Zoom is a communication tool allowing users to chat face-to-face with a straight-forward platform that makes seeing and speaking with others a breeze.

  • The application is available on both desktop and mobile devices, making it the perfect solution for parties both working from home and traveling on-the-go.
  • It’s easy to use, manage, and troubleshoot.
  • Depending on budgets and member needs, there are tiers allowing businesses’ to gather in large groups at a time, making it so almost any business can gather as they might in-office under normal circumstances.
  • The HD-video player is accessible for users with low-bandwidth, so employees with poor internet connection speeds can still connect as long as they have a smartphone device or computer.

Integrations with Other Work-From-Home Communication Tools

Before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, there were dozens of online communication tools built to make both in-office and out-of-office communication easier. Now, those tools are even more important — and more user-friendly.

Zoom works with other tools to allow for seamless integrations, giving users the ability to keep track of their meetings on one platform despite the use of multiple different tools. Some of the companies Zoom works with include Slack and Microsoft Teams, both of which can serve different, essential purposes in the business world. With the power to integrate these systems, work-from-home employees can be just as productive as they were in-office pre-COVID, ensuring their success for days, weeks, months, and maybe even years to come.
