Hybrid working is a combination of working at the office and working remotely (e.g. working from home). This working style is very flexible and suitable for any kind of work that can be performed anywhere.
Today iCONEXT would like to recommend some applications popular in organizations with a hybrid work style and work from home (WFH).
1. Time Attendance System
This system supports employees to check in/out on their smartphones or laptops conveniently. HR and managers can also view employees’ time attendance in real time. Moreover, in case the employees are assigned to go to the client company, HR can check the employees’ locations when they check in/out in the system.
In case that the company has many branches, working time of each branch can be set in the system independently, so it can reduce workload of the HR Department.

2. Video Conference Application
Nowadays, there are many recommended conference applications such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Slack. These applications enable employees who stay in different places to join the meeting together.
3. E-Document Control System

4. Project Management System
Working from home or hybrid working means that your team members are less likely to meet and discuss face-to-face. Project management will not be as comfortable as it used to be, so the applications in this category are recommended to help you to manage tasks and improve workflow to be more efficient.
The applications such as Trello, JIRA, GitLab are recommended as project management tools. By using these applications, users can divide their tasks into subtasks, set due date and person in charge, and view progress of each task, so they can manage the project successfully.
5. E-Signature System
Regardless of hybrid working or work from home, nowadays it is inevitable that you have to sign documents online with electronic signature. Our recommended applications are SignNow, HELLOSIGN and Easy Sign.
These are some applications to enhance your work outside the office to be more convenient and faster. Some systems also help you save costs, for example, the E-Document Control System reduces paper usage and the costs regarding document storage and paper shredding services. Therefore, it is very suitable for the organization adopting a paperless policy.
