Entrepreneur Keith Orie knows firsthand that entrepreneurs can struggle with productivity issues, always feeling more work could be done in a more efficient way. In most cases, making simple adjustments to your processes and workflow can make a significant difference.
This article will take a look at eight tools that can help improve productivity, including time trackers, to-do lists, and collaboration apps:
Time Doctor: This application logs time remotely on different tasks. It allows managers to monitor their employees who work remotely. A great tool for these times of working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Another awesome feature is the distraction blocker that gently nudges employees away from unplanned activities.
Fat Tomato: This app helps employees accomplish tasks more effectively. It uses a timer to break down work into simple, 25-minute intervals. At the end of each interval, the employee gets a break.
Trello: This app is a project planner that allows you to plan, organize, and prioritize tasks.
Google Calendar: This is a fairly simple one that most of us have free access to. The calendar allows you to easily keep track of your appointments and events — both professional and personal.
Password Keepers: There’s nothing worse than forgetting your password and being locked out of an application that you need to work on. This is a productivity killer! Make sure you use one of the many password saver applications to securely store all of your passwords so you don’t end up locked out. Our top pick is Keepass.
Fleep: This is a messenger that integrated with your email and allows you to share and store files and contact anyone, anywhere, on any device.
Shift: Say goodbye to an overwhelming screen and hundreds of open tabs! Shift helps streamline accounts, apps, and your workflow. Instead of having to constantly sign in and out of accounts, Shift allows you to toggle between multiple e-mail accounts.
HootSuite: Managing multiple social media accounts for different clients can become very unorganized and overwhelming. HootSuite is a social media application that acts as a dashboard that you can send out social media posts on different platforms all from one, streamlined app.
Slack: Slack is an insanely popular application with more than 8 million active users each week. Slack is a chat platform, allowing employees to communicate effectively and share ideas and solutions.
