Some companies would like to use the current lockdown as an opportunity to adopt a full remote organization. But they are afraid by the possible risks: loss of productivity, bad communication, lost information, decreased sense of belonging, lower engagement. They believe in this change for their company, for the future, but they don't want to jeopardize their culture and they don't know how to safely manage this change and the culture impact. Our goal is to make remote work adoption fluid, to reduce risks and to enable a maximum of companies do the switch with peace and hope to improve resilience and business operations.
Interacting with all team members, Dr. Remote detects automatically issues inside the organization and provides the next actions to improve remote work efficiency step by step.
What we've done
We made some studies, researches and surveys on remote workers to identify all the issues that remote organizations face while transforming. We developed targeted questionnaires to identify issues early on and we collected more than 300 best practices from leading remote startups. Dr. Remote integrates with Microsoft Teams and Slack to ask questions to team members, it automatically analyzes answers and identifies possible problems. Manager and his team can finally browse a list of possible solutions, select the most appropriate and see how applying it improve the results of the team.
