In this article, you will find the best remote work software you must have on PC during the Coronavirus

With the novel coronavirus hitting countries worldwide, many companies (including tech giants Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter), and schools are carrying out remote working and learning to thwart the spread of it. Maybe when suddenly your home-mode dream has come true, you will get lost on where to start, what physical status and mindset you should keep, and also what you should prepare for working or learning at home.

Coronavirus Remote Work Software

Considering you are probably a marketer, a tech support, an IT specialist, a web developer, a teacher or student, or some other titles, this article will share several most commonly used coronavirus remote working/learning software to set up a home office and improve productivity. Surely the premise for that is you have already prepared your computer or tablet, a stable internet connection, and a comfortable workplace. Now let’s start our list.

1- Online Chattng/Meeting Software
2- Video Recording/Live Streaming Software
3- File/Task Management Software
4- VPN Service

1 – Online Chatting or Meeting Tool

The coronavirus leaves many white-collar workers worldwide to work from home, so they have to do the same work stuff in their private and enclosed places. With no face-to-face talking and communication in the office, they have to find a decent chatting or meeting program to enable the team members to connect as always, but not using the inconvenient email.

● Slack

Slack is a popular and powerful team messaging tool used by many remote-first companies. With rich settings, collaboration, and office tools built in, it gives colleagues an easy way to engage with each other by messaging, conducting video or voice calls, and reporting business activity. To organize everything on a project, users can create a channel to manage and move things forward. To meet the needs of different companies, Slack offers four plans – free, standard, plus, and enterprise grid.

● WebEx

It’s a Cisco-developed online meeting tool. Designed especially for video conferencing, WebEx lets home workers connect via a browser, a mobile, a PC, or a video system. All of the conversation and meeting content is highly protected from its cloud space. Yes, Cisco is the security frontier as of conferencing solution. [How to Record WebEx]

There are still quite many best free or paid online tools for home workers, Skype, TeamViewer, Zoom, Google Hangouts, and, just to name a few. You can choose either according to your requirements and budget.

2 – Video Recording/Streaming Software

Maybe this kind of software is badly needed in education and training crowds like teachers and students, trainers and trainees. When coming up with distant learning, there are usually two workflows: one is the educators do real-time live streaming with students sitting in front of the screen to listen, and the other one is they record their courses in advance and then upload the videos online or send directly to students. No matter what, the video recording software is a nice helper. It can not only help teachers record courses on computers with audio and face locally but also aid both teachers and students in recording the online (live) lesson.

3 – Task/File Management

Some online chatting or meeting tools have such features. However, for professional global or local virtual workgroups, there are piles of dedicated project management programs to track time, manage tasks/files, make charts/reports, and so on. Here is one good bet.

As one of the leading collaboration and communication software, it syncs all information as it should and enables agents and team workers to make decisions together. The user can customize it to the favorite methodology to fit the actual project and team. Some people say that it’s an integration of apps like Slack, Google Drive, Gmail, GitHub, Dropbox, and more. Maybe you can try it to boost the efficiency. (>> See how to save YouTube into Dropbox)

4 – VPN Service

To keep your web browsing safer, and more stable with no blocks or restrictions, a VPN is the basic working tool your computer must be equipped with. VPN can encrypt your behavior (especially when using public Wi-Fi) and change your location to anywhere you want to be. Switching visiting locations, for global marketing personnel, is a great way to investigate the market condition of any country or city, and for online learners, is a useful helper for accessing region-restricted sites and finding whatever learning materials. Despite this, below are the 3 recommended VPN services due to their ease of use and reasonable price.

● ExpressVPN

Claim itself as the “#1 Trusted leader in VPN”, ExpressVPN is also nominated by many tech editors and users as the top choice of VPN due to its large amount of servers (3k+) and countries (94), super-fast unlimited speed and intuitive UI. Most importantly, the price is quite delicious. Now the special deal for 15 months, plus 3 months free, is just $6.67/month. In this way, even if you are back to the office or school after the dangerous coronavirus period, you can still use it to watch Netflix movies & TVS or torrent securely. If you only want one month for the current crucial time, a $12.95 one-month plan is also a good choice.

● StrongVPN

A cheaper option than Express with fewer available countries is enough for a 1-month plan to enjoy this 35-country and 950+ servers supported app with no speed limit. The 12-month plan costs $5.83 a month.

This is only a part of the software recommendations for remote work during the coronavirus outbreak. Since we can’t list all possible solutions here, you are suggested to extract and search what you need most on Google and then decide whether to take action or not. Hope this new life-threatening coronavirus will be beat soon and we all go back to the office building or school to work and study as before.
