Working together and staying on the same page can be tough enough when you work with other people in an office, but when you’re working with people from all over the world, challenges sometimes have more opportunities to present themselves. For example, miscommunication can easily become a problem because you don’t actually see the people at random times during the day like you would in an office. With that said, if you have the right tools by your side, working with a distributed team can be a great experience. I’ve been doing it for years, and I’ve found that it works better for me than the alternative. If effective collaboration is an issue for you, give Glasscubes a try.

This tool will probably prove to be helpful for teams working in the same location, but the benefits really become clear when it’s used with distributed teams. As you would expect, you can communicate with team members and clients, and all of the core collaboration and project management features are included. Files can be uploaded and worked on, tasks can be managed, calendars can be shared, and contacts can be organized. If you’ve been using a collection of different tools to handle these responsibilities, it’s worth seeing what rolling everything into one solution can do for productivity.
