Tools local professionals rely on when working remotely.

App | CamScanner

“My clients may have a pay stub or a document that needs to be submitted to the lender, but they can’t drop it off or mail it in time. CamScanner is an app on your phone that takes a picture of a document and converts it to a clean PDF. You can then share it by emailing directly out of the app.” Basic account free, business version $9.99/month; camscanner.com

—Emily Green, realtor, Sandy Green Realty Inc.; member, Minnesota Realtors board of directors


Tech Accessory | iClever Bluetooth Keyboard

“It allows me to do all my emails off my iPad and not have to deal with my laptop. The keyboard has a great battery life and is both large enough to comfortably type on and retractable for easy storage.” $20 to $40, iclever.com

—Tony Neuman, vice president of marketing, Pearson’s Candy Co.


Software | Asana

“In the past, our team would send each other questions and to-do’s via email, which ended up getting buried and lost in our in-boxes. In Asana, you can assign tasks to both yourself and your co-workers, add due dates, chat with each other in the comments section, create specific projects and calendars, and upload files to easily share. It’s been a complete game changer for our business and a lifesaver when we work remotely!” Basic plan free; premium $10.99 to $30/month, asana.com
