2. Google Chat
Google Chat is a messenger service (provided by Google) which works within the Gmail account system. Basically, Google Chat enables two Gmail users to instantaneously send text messages to each other while logged in to the Gmail system. In other words, this program essentially functions like a telephonic text message service, but is strictly within the Gmail system. As long as you and your remote team agree to remain with Gmail, this can be a great way to communicate.
As many readers will know, Skype is a well-known video conferencing software program which allows users to engage in fully-enhanced video conferences with other users. Skype users can create their own conference and then send invitations to future attendees; the whole program is simple to navigate and easy to use. Skype has been the preferred video conference software for quite some time, and will allow firm owners to easily communicate with their remote employees.
A relatively new platform, Asana is a task management and coworker communication program which enables users to perform a variety of tasks. Asana allows users to organize their own tasks, keep track of deadlines and due dates, message coworkers (via text message), and other things too. Asana can be a hugely valuable tool for law firm owners who have virtual employees, as this program will enable firm owners to communicate easily and also check the status of all critical tasks.
Like Skype, Zoom is another video conferencing program which allows users to easily set up and conduct video conferences. Zoom is very different from Skype and other video conferencing programs. Thanks to its unique features, like Call recording and Live subtitles.
