Remote Collaboration Software

Online Meetings – Zoom

Supplier Link:

Online meetings take place via Zoom; you require a laptop/PC (preferred due to the on-screen text) or mobile, and ideally a headset. Meetings will be hosted from my laptop, but occasionally I may need to deliver a meeting from my mobile. I can screenshare from any device but I will endeavour to host from my laptop for a better experience.

Zoom is free of charge.

Online meeting in action – Spotify, Zoom and Trello

Remote meetings can take place on a one-to-one basis or can include multiple participants – handy if you and your other half are in different locations! The layout contains Spotify, Trello plan board, a couple of visualisations, a clock (it’s easy to lose track of time when auditioning tracks) and, of course, my face.

Playlists – Spotify

Supplier Link:

Playlists are curated in Spotify.

You will need a Spotify account for playlist handover. A Premium account is preferred as it gives you more flexibility and a better experience. It currently (November 2020) costs £9.99 per month for an individual account or £14.99 per month for a family account. A Free account will suffice but won’t be optimal.

Planboards – Trello

Example Planboard: Wedding Example

Collaborative work is conducted via Trello planning boards. These are very easy and intuitive to use kanban boards, and full instructions will be given during meetings. You’ll also be provided with means of contacting me directly between meetings if you require support. You can log in 24/7 to check progress, approve or reject tracks and make suggestions. There is a mobile app for Trello so if you hear a track you really like whilst you’re out and about, quickly Shazam (free music recognition app) it, you can add it to your Trello board and I’ll receive a notification you want a particular track incorporating.

Your planboard can be analysed for music types over the course of the day. This can help when balancing longer playlists.

Trello is free of charge.

I’ll put more details here soon, but get in touch for an initial conversation and I’ll talk you through it!
