Another technology that takes part in working from home is digital communication platforms. Some of these platforms are Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype, Slack, among many others. Colleagues can constantly communicate with each other for meetings, updates, and other concerns. This way the businesses will be on track, anytime.
