The beginning of the year is a great chance to add new technology to your business practices. Office organizing begins with efficiently managing your tasks, and when working with a team or on the go, office organizing apps and programs become even more essential. Here are four apps this Professional Organizer in NYC urges you to try out this year.
Asana for project management. This program allows you to manage all of your projects in one space. Each project can be broken down into next steps and assigned to team members. As a collaborative space, Asana allows you to easily connect with your team through conversations, and provides comment space for each task and project so that your team can quickly and easily see what is going on and ask questions as needed. The Asana dashboard allows you to quickly see your specific tasks and their due dates. You can track progress, turn conversations into action tasks, utilize an inbox to keep yourself out of your email, and a variety of project templates to fit your needs. As you get organized this year, try using a project management system to keep everything in one place.
Todoist for to-do lists. The benefit of a to-do list app is that you can literally take it everywhere with you! So when you are on the go, you can easily check and see what tasks still need to be completed and what steps you need to take next. Todoist allows you to share your lists with others so they can monitor tasks and also can collaborate with you in real time. You can customize this app by creating sub tasks, sub projects, and priorities. Todoist also notifies you of upcoming due dates as well and provides analytics and trends to track your productivity.
Evernote for notes and planning. You can use Evernote for so many things! Creating lists, adding notes, brain dump ideas, for receipts, and you can snap pictures to add as support material in your notebooks. With so many options, this is a powerful tool to have at your fingertips. Evernote is available on all devices, so you can access your notes wherever you go. It includes a search function so you can locate all your notes with keywords and find exactly what you need. There is an individual and team option – the team option allows everything the individual option does, plus the ability to collaborate in a single space, keep projects together, and share and give feedback.
Zoho CRM for client management. Your business is nothing without the clients or customers that you work with, so having a system in place to manage them as well as tracking trends and communication. Zoho allows you to track visitors and email analytics so that you know what your customers are doing and you can find opportunities to engage with them. You can track sales, marketing, and customizable reporting. Zoho also help to generate more sales by using automation and workflows, and it allows you to customize for your industry. This powerful tool will help you take your engagement and sales to the next level.
