These are the productivity apps to use for your business

Friday, September 16, 2016

Did you know that you might be losing up to ten hours of productivity every week? A recent survey found business owners are spending too much time on simple tasks like email and administration, instead of dedicating time to grow their business using productivity apps.

At SWAG, we’ve seen first-hand how productivity apps can save time, streamline team conversations and improve workflow. Here’s a list of some of the best productivity apps we’ve seen so far:

Slack is a tool dedicated to improving team productivity. Conversations on particular projects or topics can be hosted in the app, multiple types of files can be stored and shared and Slack even receives notifications from other apps like Facebook, Twitter or Dropbox, making it much easier to stay up to date with everything.

DocuSign allows business owners to review and sign documents on any device, which saves a lot of time spent on the mundane printing, signing, scanning and sending process.

Google Drive reads and saves MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint files in a virtual drive, so they can be opened and shared on the go, which works really well if you’re constantly between meetings and need to have important documents on hand.

Xero is a cloud-based accounting piece of software that provides a real-time view of your cash flow, which you can access across multiple devices. Xero’s mobile app allows you to reconcile funds, send invoices and manage expense claims from the palm of your hand. As certified Xero advisors, the SWAG team are able to work with our clients from one set of accounts and ensure that up-to-date information is available as needed. Xero also allows our clients to take a look at what’s happening every now and then, leaving the rest up to us.
