5 Unique Remote Working Tools you can use to Elevate your Business
While restrictions in the UK may be lifting, work from home will most likely be with us in one form or another for many months to come, and many businesses may well take the positives from remote working and implement them into normal working practices.
Working from home may never fully replace coming into the office or visiting a client directly, but this past year of making-do has lead to the creation or rise of popularity for many remote working tools and apps.
Here at Elevate Agency we’ve put together 5 of our favourite Remote Working tools that you can use to Elevate your business without leaving the comfort of your own room.
Shutter App is an incredible piece of software for photographers having to work remotely now and in the future. Harnessing the camera of any compatible smartphone, photographers can remotely take control of a clients phone camera through the Shutter Portal . This includes accessing manual focus, white balance, exposure, and any other camera control the phone has. The microphone and speaker on the phone allow the photographer to talk directly to the client and give posing directions, as if on a real shoot.
The session is secured using a 12-digit number shared by the client, and for the duration of the session, the photographer can take pictures that appear directly on their computer, as to not take up space on the client’s phone.
Shutter App takes a task that normally would require face-to-face contact, and allows for a remote experience very similar to the real thing.
Loom is an easy to use, versatile, and free piece of software that solves all the scenarios above. The recording process is very intuitive, results in a single link to share on any communications app and is hosted online to be accessed anywhere by your team or client.
Loom can also be used to increase sales – record a sales video to embed on your online store, or record a video promoting a service. The creative possibilities are massive, Loom gives you the tools to make it.
Virtual Office utilises the handy ‘virtual background’ feature found in several video meeting software packages by creating a virtual office space with your businesses branding. No software download necessary; simply upload your logo to the site and choose a virtual office space. You can then download this background and have it appear behind you during your next meeting.
Polly.ai provides a great way to engage remote working team members or clients when decisions need to be made on a project, or an opinion is needed. Polly can be sent in all major messaging apps or over email/directly. Multiple choice, rating scale, and open-ended question are all possible formats that you can use. The simple and responsive design means a higher click-through rate, which means your team or client is more engaged.
