Whether you operate a small business or are a part of a 200 person ensemble, here some useful apps that will keep you organized and prepared every day.
1. Evernote: Evernote allows you keep track of your documents and notes wherever you go, across all of your devices. Evernote is especially handy if you travel frequently and want to be able to access you work documents without logging into your server every time. Evernote can work with word and pdf programs as well to allow you to make edits to any documents you are viewing while away from your laptop.
2. Trello: Stewart & Associates recently hopped on the Trello-train and haven’t regretted a second of it. Trello keeps our marketing team publishing blogs, approving flyer proofs and getting out content calendars done on time. One of my favorite features is the ability to communicate with coworkers within the card that is created, instead of emailing them every time I have a question or comment. We are able to add whoever needs to be aware of the project, chat with them and easily make a checklist within a certain card if multiple checks and steps are necessary.
3. Hootsuite: Every business-owner hears about the importance of social media management and we aren’t going to stop reminding you. Keep up on your social media interactions, current posts and future posts by using Hootsuite. This app allows you to easily manage your social media accounts and publish updates immediately or in advance so that your social media manager can continue to create fantastic content for your growing needs.
4. Wave: This accounting app was designed for small businesses will help you keep finances under control as you track your sales, expenses, customer payments and more. This app is ideal for businesses who like to keep all aspects of their business’s finances in one place, and accessible at any time.
5. Rescuetime: Even the best of us sometimes need a little reminder about time management, so use Rescuetime to keep yourself in check when working on projects and daily tasks. Rescuetime tracks how much time is spent on various apps and websites, sending reports based on this activity and hopefully giving some insight as to how your time can be spent otherwise. There is a free version, and a paid version, which has added features of alerts, ability to block certain sites and filters.
