Teamwork can never be replaced by anything else. The way you do the teamwork, however, can easily be changed thanks to the new tools available online. Applications such as Slack, Asana, and Jira, are an easy way to stay connected with work members and submit work on time. It does not really matter where you are working from, as long as the way you work is right and effective.
Boosting your productivity using these tools is a simple process. You have to start with really understanding the software. Some elements take time in getting used to but once you get the hang of it, you can quickly understand the workflow. With Asana, you have project board workspaces that include standard templates for industries from information technology and engineering to human resources and design. Therefore, for a company that has different varying departments, this tool can really help to bring everything and everyone together on one same page. Slack is simpler to grasp. It allows creating whole environments, groups, and one-on-one chats. It is a perfect fit for many challenges: from starting a new project or feature to discussing the code with your dev team. You can create a separate chat or channel for projects or teams, and not only for work-related issues. Jira is more focused on software development companies. The tool provides access to many support options such as online documentation, interactive walk-through, video-training guides, and many more.
In this decade of increasing tech resources, every company has to stay on top of these new tools to get ahead in the game. Even if you have to spend a few days learning how to use these tools, I say go for it. It is a long-term investment and will definitely come in handy.
