If you are trying to stay in touch with work colleagues you might be using the traditional methods of email and phone. These are highly effective but are not the complete communications answer.

At TimberSmart we use Joinme for product demonstrations and Zoom for meetings among ourselves. We find these video conferences are excellent to maintain the feel of a shared workspace – even though it is a virtual experience.
