Every passing day makes us feel like there aren’t enough hours in a day, especially when you’ve got a mountain of tasks that need your attention. Luckily, thanks to advancements in technology, there are plenty of tools available that can help you to manage your workloads. Throughout this article, we’ve gathered together six great tools for productivity.
Zapier is an incredible automation platform that integrates with well over 1500 apps, which likely include your favorite apps. When you start with Zapier, you will need to go through a straightforward setup wizard that pairs triggers and apps. Once you’ve finished, you will have all of your go-to tools in one place, which will save you a considerable amount of time.
Keeping in touch with colleagues and making yourself available for clients is essential for business, but being contactable at all times can be counterintuitive, especially when you have other work that needs finishing. With 10to8 on your side, you can share your work calendar and schedule appointments, which will let sporadic interruptions leave the chat.
If you use one of the mainstream browsers, including Chrome, Edge, and Firefox, you will understand how counterintuitive they can be, with countless tabs open that guzzle up your RAM. Fortunately, there are plenty of alt browsers out there that make your life easier; the Stack Browser is our favorite. This browser lets you separate your life into different areas by “stacking” tabs. For example, you can have a stack for home and work, and you can even create a stack suitable for your kids – just make sure they don’t get into your important documents and delete your work.
Time Doctor is one of the most powerful productivity software available and is used primarily by project managers. With this tool installed, it will track the amount of time each employee has spent on different tasks, which means you will know if someone isn’t pulling their weight. This tool has wide integration including Basecamp, QuickBooks, Google Apps, Slack, and many more.
There’s nothing worse than needing to access a tool and locking yourself out because you forgot the password. Fortunately, thanks to LastPass, those frustrations can be a distant memory. LastPass is a vault that stores all of your passwords, and only requires one master user password for access. This tool integrates with Google Chrome and other browsers, which means you can simply input passwords without leaving your window.
If you need customer insights in your line of work, Shipright is the tool for you. This software integrates with online review platforms and brings everything together. Once it’s collected the information, it will analyze the reviews and even categorize them for you. Having your reviews arranged properly will help you to better understand them, which will help you to fulfill the market demands.
Completing all of our tasks can be overwhelming, especially when the days just seem to vanish. Fortunately, the tools above can all help to automate processes and make your life more productive.
