No matter where you work, Autumn always seems to signal the start of the year’s most productive period.
Perhaps it’s due to being refreshed after our summer holidays. Or maybe we’re just cramming in the work with one eye on the Christmas break and preparing for the relaxation accompanied by copious amounts of festive food while watching Home Alone.
Whatever the reason, as soon as the leaves change colour our productivity ramps up – as evidenced by this long term study which found that businesses completed more tasks in September, October and November than any other time of year.
And if you’re a small business, capitalising on this enhanced work rate is a must – so finding the best apps and handsets to help you do so is crucial.
Here are three apps to supercharge your businesses productivity.
1. Are you slacking on your communication?
Communication is a key function in any business. You want to ensure things are as easy as possible when trying to get in touch with a member of your team. Using an app like Slack takes workplace messaging to a whole new level. It’s quicker than email, more organized than texting and offers more features than any other messaging platform. Slack is the tool that allows you to maximize productivity and reduce email traffic.
2. Never miss a thing
With Evernote you’ll never need pen or paper again as it remains the leader for note taking workplace apps. And, it’s so simple to use that it can quickly become an integrated part of any office workplace. Evernote allows you to auto-sync everything across all your devices, so you’ll never misplace a to-do list or an important document again. At a click of a button it’s ready to capture any ideas and can easily be shared with colleagues.
3. Say no to distraction
When your working days are busy, and distractions are all around you it can be hard to stay focused. If you struggle to stay on track Toggl might be the app to change that. Providing time management, Toggl monitors your time spent across different apps and websites being the perfect platform to be a productive boss. And when those moments of distraction do strike, your loyal friend will be there to drop you tracking reminders.
Of course, if apps aren’t enough, then perhaps it’s time to invest in a new phone.
Just launched, the new iPhone 11 is every business’ best friend. With its upgraded smart technology it’s essentially an office right in your back pocket. Functioning with an all-day battery life, workplace apps can be downloaded allowing you to become more integrated into everyday business operations to increase productivity and efficiency, even on the go. And with the unpredictable autumnal weather, the new iPhone 11 will never let you down with its splash and water-resistant technology.
If you’re a business wanting to change things up, it might be time to give serious thought to the idea of moving away from the traditional desktop PC and putting your faith in smartphones and investing in some top apps.
