Working from home as a result of efforts to contain the COVID-19 spread has never been this viable, productive, and effective with the use of a powerful, Cloud-based all-in-one collaboration and communication suite now available for free in the Philippines.
Singapore-based technology company Lark Technologies Pte. Ltd. announced that it has made its digital collaboration suite, Lark, available for free across the Southeast Asia region, including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Lark is an all-in-one platform for collaboration that brings together a multitude of essential work tools, including Messenger, Online Docs and Sheets, Cloud Storage, Calendar, and Video Conferencing.
Lark’s free version comes with unlimited video calls (with advanced screen sharing), 200GB of cloud storage, online collaborative docs and sheets, a smart calendar, a powerful messenger, unlimited third-party app integrations, and customizable attendance/approval workflows. Lark has also just launched a live-streaming feature to unlock more possibilities of virtual collaboration. Video meetings can be live-streamed which is very useful for large-scale meetings in situations.
Here are some of Lark’s main features:
Lark’s powerful Messenger, can create chat groups for up to 5,000 members, make all-staff announcements, and keep noise to a minimum. With emoji replies, threaded conversations, read receipt, video/audio calls, check group members’ schedules, send documents—all without leaving Messenger. All chat history is searchable plus allows users to automatically translate messages in over 100 languages, making it especially useful for global teams.
Enjoy smooth, reliable video calls with unlimited minutes, share their screen or share a Lark Doc (either from desktop or from mobile), and co-edit a Lark Doc together during a video call. A video call can be launched at one click from any chat or calendar event, and users can join on any device. Lark Video Conferencing also supports inviting external participants.
Lark’s calendar function allows users to display multiple calendars and check their teammates schedules all at once. Invite individual contacts to a meeting or entire chat groups by adding group names to their guest list. From any calendar event, users can launch a chat group (in Lark Messenger) and an agenda doc (in Lark Docs) at one click, so that the conversation can start even before the meeting, and everyone can get on the same page.
On Lark Docs, users can co-edit online documents with their teammates, even during video calls, and all changes are saved in the cloud in Lark Drive (200GB of cloud storage included in Lark’s free version). Lark Docs supports inserting rich multimedia content, including images, videos, charts, and even group chats and polls. Using the “Comment” feature, users can have conversations about specific parts of a Lark Doc or specific cells of a Lark Sheet. On Lark Docs, you can easily view and manage document sharing permissions, making it a breeze to keep information secure.
On Lark Workplace, users can automate and customize their organizations’ internal workflows such as approvals, reimbursements, leaves, and attendance—without having to code or purchase additional software. They can also integrate Lark with third-party applications, from Jira to Asana to Salesforce. Lark also has an Open Platform where users can build their own apps and bots.
