Virtual/Telework Resources

Online Chat for Business

Slack – Your team can see who is online at a glance and call through the computer with a click. Lots of integrations. (Use them!)

Hangouts – It might make sense if you use G-Suite in your company. With the Meet version it seems they are working on improving it. We left it for Slack about 1 year ago.

Teams – Definitely consider if you are on Office 365 or about to adopt it.

Gravatate – Private chat and collaboration workspaces help professionals engage, inform and lead the teams, clients and members they serve.

Video and Conference Calling for Business

Video calls are highly recommended as your team and customers need face-to-face communication.

Uberconference

Uberconference is the easiest to sign up with for the most features. No call length limit and 50 users due to Covid-19. Good solution if you need something fast and simple, try it out.

Zoom

May be difficult to get new accounts due to the volume of demand. Otherwise the free version allows group calls (larger than 3 people) for up to 40 minutes. Here is the best guide I have seen on getting started. Can’t sign up? (And this goes for any of the tools) Maybe borrow and account from a friend who is not using it.

Microsoft Teams

It comes with Office 365, but you can sign up also with a Microsoft or Gmail account. It is important to start with the correct link to activate it. The difference between paid and free teams can be found here but due to Covid-19 paid teams has a free 6 month trial for now.

Google Hangouts

Hangouts and Duo can work for calls with up to 10 people and are available if you have a Gmail account. Currently not possible to set up a dial number with the version linked to a free Gmail account. More advanced features are available (And now for no additional charge through July 31, 2020) if you have G-Suite (paid Corporate G-Mail).

(And now for no additional charge through July 31, 2020) if you have G-Suite (Paid G-Mail and Drive). More can be found here.
