Technology enables companies to go remote. As we mentioned, remote work can’t be possible without the technology that enables it. Things like broadband internet and cloud computing phone plans make remote work possible. Modern teams usually use some combination of messengers, email, video conferencing, cloud documents, and project management software.
Remote working is no longer a phenomenon restricted to startups (a large percentage of companies now have a remote team). The benefits of remote working are numerous: no commute means less stress, flexible working hours mean more time to do the things you love, and a more relaxed environment that allows you to be yourself and express yourself allows your team to flourish.
The most important factor that makes a remote team function is communication. In order to be able to do their job, a remote team needs to have a working communication protocol that they follow while they are working. If they don’t have the right tools, they will have a hard time communicating with their team.
