The use of a custom database software like FileMaker can be very effective for those who are working remotely as it can store and share many important documents and information between employees.

If employees wish to combat these risks and maintain a productive workday away from the office, they may want to adhere to some of these tips provided from major technology website, Wired.

Being in all digital places at one time is needed in order to successfully complete the necessary work and assignments, while still maintaining excellent communication with fellow employees.

Also, those working remotely will need to ensure they aren't missing anything nor leaving anyone out of the loop by informing co-workers that they will be out of the office that day. This level of communication is critical to the point where Wired suggests that employees and managers working away from their desk take the effort to respond quickly to inquiries and even "over-communicate" to ensure that nothing gets lost between one computer and another.
