6 Useful SaaS Tools While We Work
Let’s admit we all have literally detested working from home during the pandemic. No
matter how much we always wanted to use our laptops, do the office work whilst eating
that packet of chips, we have come to terms with the ever so revealing fact that it does
not work one bit! But is that entirely true? Have you wondered how you are still doing
the job, still getting things done, still meeting the deadlines, still keeping in touch
with your teams, working on your reports, and doing all you have on your plate? I am
sure technologically we all have found new/old stuff to work with. I mean who is not
using Google Meet! Let’s also face the fact that we would have not been able to deliver
our performance without the use of some extremely useful applications and softwares or
software as an application (SaaS) as we know it.
Let’s see what applications we all have been using to keep things going.

since we all pretty much know Zoom is used for video conferencing. Yes, we had Skype too
but what’s different? Zoom can hold up to 49 videos with 1000 participants. It has HD
video and audio calls, with almost no audio issues, screen sharing, whiteboard functions
to illustrate projects on multiple screens all of which can be accessed on a smartphone
or any other device. While we work from home, Zoom is the best go-to SaaS tool to
conduct video meetings to discuss work or just catch up.
