Adulting is hard. No one said it would be easy — but can you cut us a little slack here? Trying to find a suitable career after college is in itself a daunting task, but trying to get a handle on the ever-evolving tools used in business is no picnic either. Fax machine, Rolodex, pencil — come again? Today, we scan our documents with cell phones, store our contacts in the cloud and have moved up to an iPencil. Technology is awesome, especially when it helps make our jobs a little bit less complicated.

Working remote requires a specialized set of tools and a specific amount of patience (dropped calls anyone?) to succeed. As more and more people say “see ya” to traditional 9-5 office environments in favor of communal workspaces (like WeWork) and even their own backyards — the tools available for daily success have expanded.
With so many people using their mobile devices on the go these days, if you’re planning on using a free calling app to host your next conference call, it’s important that the app you choose be compatible with the devices participants will be using. After all, 33 percent of people use their smartphone to video conference.
Web conferencing can be a fantastic way for companies to save money and time, efficiently exchange information and connect with attendees from all over the country and even the world.
Businesses are starting to take note, too—a recent report found that video conferencing usage more than doubled over a span of just two years across multiple industries.
