Tools for managing tasks and projects remotely, why are they so necessary?

The tools and applications like the ones shown here are very useful for organizing from daily tasks to entire projects, especially if each team member is in a different place. What these applications allow us is, in addition to a perfect organization, a thorough control of every step that is taken in the project. Or what’s the same, thanks to them the company sees how it improves the efficiency and productivity of the team.

  • You can assign tasks to each employee and receive feedback.
  • We will have an excellent internal communication channel.
  • We will manage the work from where we are just using a mobile device.
  • Having everything so controlled the risks of something going wrong are minimized.
  • Notifications will be in real time via the messaging system.


Below we will see the most effective tools for managing tasks and projects remotely.

Remember the milk

This platform allows optimal management of tasks and projects remotely. It has a paid version and a free version. In the last one we will have web, desktop and mobile applications and integration with Gmail and Google Calendar. You can order tasks from others and share lists with up to 2 others. The paid version is more complete. Among other features, it includes synchronizing tasks with Microsoft Outlook, adding subtasks, and working offline with the web app.


Thanks to this application we will create lists of tasks and organize them as relevant. Its interface is very simple to use so you can customize it according to the needs of each company. As in the previous case, we have a free version and a paid version. The main difference between one and the other is that in the paid version you can also attach documents and files.
