Physical presence does play a large part in moving our projects forward. Managing a project remotely requires a diligent and transparent approach to keep track and maintain the various tasks, deadlines and processes.

Having a singular place for distributing information ensures that team members do not complain that they were not updated or didn’t know where the specific file was.
