Remote Working: Requires More Than Just Chat

Instant chat services like Slack, MS Teams and Skype are great ways of communicating in real time but they’re not the only tool your remote team needs to work together efficiently.

Glasscubes is a secure hub of online workspaces that contain a comprehensive suite of remote working tools, which compliment instant chat and boost productivity.

Enhance Chat with Workspaces

A distracting 'time stealer'

Placeholder

Chat is perfect when you want a casual conversation or require another user’s immediate attention. They’re not so welcome when they interrupt you, but you’re compelled to respond anyway

In contrast, conversations in workspaces are asynchronous and convenient; any ideas, issues, answers, and decisions, remain contained within a threaded discussion. You'll also find responses are more considered, as there’s no time pressure to reply.

Controlling shared files

Placeholder

Sharing files by chat is convenient but lacks version control. This often results in different variations of the same document becoming distributed, which can quickly cause chaos.

The solution is to upload your shared files and folders into a centrally managed workspace that automatically locks documents while editing. This retains version control and guarantees that everyone’s accessing the latest information available to them.

Transparent accountability

Placeholder

Attempting to keep remote teams accountable to deadlines, tasks and priorities using chat alone often ends up in convoluted discussion, with those involved trying to 'pass the buck'.

Workspaces provide transparency, to view activity and monitor team engagement. Knowing what needs to be completed, by whom and when, keeps everyone in the loop and gets the job done.

  • Collaborative working at its best. We have been using Glasscubes for several months now and can’t imagine not having it as part of our core toolset. The functionality is extensive and it’s incredibly intuitive to use. As a local government user, we are limited to the type of products we can use but this one ticked all the boxes and I can only see it's use increasing as time goes on. Placeholder
