April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 195

Doing business with a group of people who work remotely has an enormous number of advantages. However, keeping the workers in communication can be a challenge. There are several free iPhone apps that can help workers to communicate, meet remotely and stay organized. Here are five free apps that can help manage a virtual office team.


Making phone calls is a big part of keeping a group of virtual workers in communication. Having high-quality sound on your calls and being able to make the calls for free are important to any business. Viber boasts high-quality sound that is better than traditional phone calls. It also allows your team members to call each other completely free from anywhere in the world. Even when workers are working remotely overseas, you don't have to worry about the cost of staying in communication. There are no ads when using this app.


Messaging is another important component in staying in communication. This app allows users to create pods, or groups, that can communicate together. It works with iPhones as well as virtually any other type of phone. Beluga keeps track of your chat histories, allowing you to go back over past chat logs easily. You can send fast messages to group members and send photos as well as your location info. When using Beluga, there are no texting fees. Your entire group can message, create group chats and keep them all stored for free.

Free Conference Call

Every business that has virtual employees relies on conference calls. With Free Conference Call, these conferences can be conducted on an iPhone screen, and it's all free. And it doesn't matter how large your virtual workforce is- as many as 1,000 people can be included in the calls. To help manage each call, individual callers can be muted or put on hold. Conferences can be recorded and stored with the app. After each call, a report that details each call is automatically emailed to the participants. The conference calls are recorded and can be played back at any time. Even if other callers don't have an iPhone, they can still participate in the calls.


Creating documents is a necessary part of keeping a virtual office team informed. Collaborative efforts are often needed when several team members are working on a project. Users can create proposals, briefs and other documents, and send them out to other team members. Sharing ideas becomes quick and easy with this free app. It keeps the created documents organized and allows for easy editing and collaborating with other team members. Users can manage their contacts to allow groups to collaborate on the documents. Templates are provided, or users can design their own documents.


Getting everyone together for a meeting in a virtual office can be a challenge when the team works remotely. INvite is a free app that allows users to send out invitations to meetings. The invitations are easy to send and can be sent out to large groups so that meetings are always scheduled.

With these solutions, you'll be able to easily manage and adapt to a virtual office environment without losing out on productivity or professionalism.
