Pop quiz: You need to arrange a conference call at your time 3pm tomorrow with your colleagues abroad.
At what local time do your colleagues need to join the call? Tricky!
You’d have to be a time zone genius to figure this out quickly in your head. Hence why app development team Minimum inc., created World Clock Pro Mobile.
To get started with the app, simply add each of the cities where you want to know the time. Then, with a quick swipe of your finger, move the dial on the 24 hour clock face to adjust your time to 3pm tomorrow, and hey presto! The relative London and Toronto times are revealed in a second.
Co-founder of Minimum inc., Alexander Komarov, knows a thing or two about working across time zones. Originally from Moscow, he's something of a digital nomad; having lived in Philadelphia and Hawaii in the USA, and then Melbourne and now Byron Bay in Australia.
Like more and more businesses, they operate remotely. Komarov explains: “Currently, there are 12 people in our team and we’ve been working 99% remotely for the past 8 years. To date, we have collaborated with colleagues and clients from over 20 countries, and are routinely dealing with half a dozen time zones on a daily basis.”
The app helps teams to easily coordinate themselves to work effectively across time zones and perhaps even go into an 'around-the-clock mode', where work is done non-stop for 24 hours a day, with one team member waking as another finishes their workday.
The beauty and power of World Clock Pro Mobile is in the elegant visualisation of both current and future times in multiple cities around the globe, and seeing at a glance their relationships to one another on the 24 hour clock face.
Never waste time figuring out global times again.
