Let’s face it…we’re all constantly looking for ways to get more done, in less time, while spending as little money as possible. But on the other side, we spend a lot of time doing things that distract us from accomplishing what we set out to do (have to see who “liked” that last Facebook post). Can you relate?
Well, the good news is that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of apps out today that are geared towards helping businesses achieve their goals, keep everyone on the same page, and make it a little more fun along the way. Here are some of the top apps that will help focus your team and supercharge your business’ productivity this year.
This software is the ultimate communication tool. It allows everyone on your team to quickly and easily communicate, locate answers to past conversations, and streamline your workflows internally because it integrates with many of the other softwares you’re probably currently using like Google Drive and Salesforce.
If you don’t already have a fancy database where you organize your clients and their needs into one place, Basecamp is a great tool to help you do just that. Designed more for agencies or companies that do ongoing work for their clients, this software and app can help you put everything you need to know about a client under one roof, keep your whole team on the same page and help you stay in touch with that client at all times. Create to-dos lists, schedule deadlines, automate check-ins, store documents and files and so much more.
As one of the most widely-used cloud storage services, Google Drive may be key to revamping your office workflows and boosting productivity. It allows your entire organization to store and share documents, spreadsheets, slide decks and so much more, while also integrating with just about every other business software and technology on the market today. The best news? It’s also one of the most affordable. Sounds like a steal!

Your accounting and HR department will thank you, and you don’t have to worry about remembering to track everything manually. Win-win!
