Programming is one of the most fuzzy jobs to monitor and control. However most of agencies are welcome .changes of requirements and run agile which need easy and fast tools to inform and deliver changes
We have tried too many tools with the team till we get into integrated, fast and easy way deliver the work hence we work on highly standard and agile mindset.
I would like to share this fantastic experiment with you in this blog, so lets get started !
1- Version Control
For sure version control is required to save all the updates, changes and versions and also resolve conflicts between different files versions and team updates. However most teams are using GIT. We use Bitbucket as main GIT repository. It allows agencies to create unlimited private repositories for free, the premium starts with teams with more than 5 users. Further its Atlassian product that is integrated with all company products.

In summery you we define a project and plan for it on JIRA, we create a Repository on Bitbucket and we create a Room on HipChat for the project and connect it to the JIRA and Bitbucket, then we create tasks and assign it to each team member and truck the progress over TimeDoctor. This could be use for remote team
Hopefully this would help you to increase productivity in your development environment with less cost and time,
