At HireVue we love using technology to increase productivity and improve communications. Its often difficult to collaborate with other team members with distance, meetings and when other priorities come into play. That’s why we use a variety of business applications to quickly communicate and share projects with one another. And the best part is, most of these applications are completely free. So, without further adieu, here are our top five favorite applications: 1. Google Google is making it easier and easier to connect. From Google Drive to Google Now, Google allows you to share documents, save projects and video chat anytime using their free applications. 2.
