The tools you choose to support remote work have a significant impact on the levels of trust, productivity, and effective communication on a team, often in subtle and surprising ways. The number of software tools and services can be overwhelming—especially for the growing number of companies suddenly switching to a remote model.
We compiled this set of tools by talking to hundreds of remote workers and experts, surveying Quora topics and other available tools lists, and researching each company on Capterra, Crunchbase, and AngelList. With almost 400 entries broken down by category, this table may be the most comprehensive list of remote tool resources available, and includes pricing information and details about how to get started—free trial via self-serve or (everyone’s favorite!) having to contact a sales rep.
importantIf you haven’t yet, we strongly recommend reading the section of the guide that covers key remote communication channels and tools, to help guide your decision-making when it comes to choosing the tools that will work best for your team’s needs. Starting with the Collaboration and Documentation category will help you form the base of your asynchronous documentation strategy.
