Our top 7 tools for seamless online collaboration.

By Peter Van Rhoon.

It’s eerie, isn’t it? In just a matter of days, we’ve seen our world change dramatically. Each country is dealing with it in their own way. For us it means the streets of Amsterdam are the quietest they’ve ever been. 

We’re blessed to be able to work on location and working online with our own team as well as with clients’ teams was already part of our daily staple. With us all self-isolated, we had the opportunity to take team-work while being at different locations to the next level. And it’s actually been really good. We learned that we need more meetings. But we also found it’s easier to have an overview of what everyone is doing. We’d be lost without the online collaboration tools we use to get our job done. Our suite of saas applications to do our job at any time, in any place is what we call our Digital Toolshed. 

The least we can do in these times is to share the set up that works so well for us. There’s not ‘a best tool’ and you may like other online collaboration tools. But feel free to drop us a line if you want to know more regarding online working for marketeers and co-labor with project management tools.

We’ve had the word written large on the wall of our office for over a year now.
The letters used to be at home on the wall of a Belgium cinema. It was the 80s, we assume it was a porn cinema. So far so good.
