Our tools to successfully work remotely
The employees of zauberware technologies live at different locations in Europe. As our company follows the philosophy that competence does not have to be physically bundled at a fixed location, we do not need to restrict our choice of employees on their place of residence. And vice versa, it is no problem for zauberware if a team member changes the place of residence. To be successful with this model, we use certain tools to coordinate our cooperation.
Workplace by Facebook for chat, internal screen sharing meetings and social networking
Anyone who knows Facebook, knows Workplace.
It is the relatively young business offer by Facebook for companies. Basically a Facebook instance, only for a limited user area.
There are stand-alone mobile apps that are installed parallel to the normal Facebook apps.
In the chat, there is also a video and screen sharing functionality which we use for internal 1-1 meetings. Unfortunately no external persons can be added to the webmeetings and webmeetings with several people are not possible, so we use an additional tool.
Besides all criticism we have towards Facebook: it is used, it connects us, it is fun.
