The challenge of managing a remote team: is here to help

If you’re like me, this has been a strange and challenging time. A lot feels very uncertain. But some decisions have been very easy to make. The decision to have the Ally team (both in Seattle and Chennai) work from home for the foreseeable future was one we made quickly. 

Ally keeps teams aligned and focused on work, where work happens.

But like you, that decision was followed by a lot of questions: Will we be able to maintain our trajectory? Can our team stay focused at home? What does this all mean for our business?

And then, the most important question:

What can we do to help?

COVID-19 has forced so many companies to shift to a remote workforce, but that doesn’t have to mean a disconnected workforce. helps teams of any shape and size stay connected, empower their employees, and drive toward their goals. Now, more than ever, your team needs support and structure.

Right now, companies across the world are planning for the future, one that will look different from what they are used to, and doing so without being in the same room.

Our team spent some time discussing what we can do to help make this easier, given the value OKRs bring to alignment and focus for so many teams; wherever they work. We came up with some solutions that will help you manage this unprecedented shift.  

1. As of today, Ally is offering a free 30-day trial on request. No gimmicks; just more time to build a goal management framework that your team can use, and more time to decide if you’re ready to do so longterm.

2. We are holding a series of webinars. Watch our latest, “How to Align and Inspire a Remote Team,” and stay tuned for more.

Hopefully one of these will help make this stressful time a little bit easier to manage, but if you have more questions or have specific needs, our team is here…well, they’re at home…but we’re all focused on helping you build the best remote workflow ever seen. Let us know how we can help.
