Working remotely because of Covid-19

Last updated on the 28th March 2020.

The situation

According to the COVID 19 outbreak situation in India, and to minimize the risk of spreading the virus to our team, the Idealysis team have decided to work from home for a while.

Before working remotely, we have verified that everyone is comfortable with the idea and agrees to work at home (have good chair, desk and good internet connection) and we provided the needed equipment to our team. At teh same time we set up a workflow process to have the best communication as possible internally and with our clients.

Of course we are very lucky that our business is entirely aimed at servicing the web already and many of ours clients are abroad, so we have been using online communication tools for years.

Internal Communication

Teamwork

In each project we have all the tasks assigned to our analysts, designers and developers, and deadlines for each. Every team member daily updates his status to indicate what he is working on. This way everyone can monitor who is working on what and be the most efficient.

Google Drive

We use google drive for all the documents exchanges between team members, we have organized every file to be easy to find and edit online.

External communication with clients

Skype, Zoom, Hangouts, WhatsApp

Whatever you’re using, we can use it!

Emails

Email is of course a must have, but never managed to really be an ideal solution, most boxes become messes, other tools for chat and project management hopefully come to the rescue. I recommend to keep as little emails as possible, archive everything that needs to be.

Google Calendar

A few meetings per day, even more than before as we do meetings for things that would have been done in real interactions in the office. With so many meetings, some kind of organisation is needed. A calendar.

We wish you to stay safe in this moment, let’s stay at home and use these circumstances to do our best to concentrate on things that matter.
