Keep Your Remote Workers Connected With Campfire

A friend of mine who lives in New York started working remotely for a company in California. There are three employees at headquarters in LA and ten more that work remotely from all over the country.

To stay connected, they are using an online program called Campfire.
Campfire is a web-based group chat tool that lets you set up password-protected chat rooms in just seconds. Invite a client, colleague, or vendor to chat, collaborate, and make decisions. Link to a room on your intranet for internal communications.
The team members log into Campfire when they start their day and then communicate as needed in the main chat room as to what they're working on, if they are stepping away for lunch, etc.. You can also create private chat rooms to work one-on-one or in small groups.

If you are using Basecamp as your project management tool, Campfire integrates seamlessly into that work flow.
