A Basic Guideline for Async Communication

Many companies are looking into the async communication style to leverage it within their culture as it helps with many of the challenges associated with distributed teams. If you haven’t, check out our last article with our thoughts on how async communication helps your teams and how to benefit from it.

How Async Communication Can Help Your Team

Here at Standups, we believe that distributed work is the future of work, and that’s fundamentally the main reason we launched our product to help teams run async standups. Distributed work is deeply linked to being asynchronous —|āˈsiNGkrənəs| —usually just async. The concept is not easy to grasp at first for most people. Its official definition is: “[said] of two or more objects (or events) not existing or happening at the same time”....

Introducing Standups.io 🎊

Standups.io helps remote and distributed teams to run more effective standups regardless of the location of its members in the world. Running standups for these teams is hard due to the difference in timezones, and most asynchronous tools out there are just chat / text-based.

Announcing Standups.io 🎉 Check-ins for distributed teams

A standup is a regular meeting that’s very usual in companies that work with agile methodologies. Standups are great for team building, improving collaboration and keeping teams cohesive.
