7 Ways to Improve Efficiency


Successful businesses are driven by collaboration and productivity. How do you achieve both while benefitting everyone on your team? How do you avoid the inevitable obstacles: priority management, strategy alignment, and transparency? Many tools have made it easier for teams to communicate clearly, prioritize tasks, delegate responsibilities, and hold themselves—and each other—accountable. Check out these seven tools for increasing productivity and efficiency to find which ones fit the needs of your organization.

1. Connecteam

There’s an app for that—and your business! With Connecteam, you can create your own branded agent app. This tool is valuable for businesses with remote workers who may not enjoy the same in-office privileges that others have. From your customized app, agents can view and create checklists, upload files, view schedules of events, create informational libraries, and even train for continued learning. Even better—the app can be created in just over an hour!

2. Pocket

No matter how good you are at avoiding procrastination, you’re bound to come across irresistible articles and videos on the Internet. Pocket lets you save distracting links and useful articles for later with a simple button, which is installed as an extension onto your web browser. Whether it’s the link to a website, a PDF that needs to be edited, or an infographic you’d like to someday share on social media, or anything else you stumble upon, you can put it into your Pocket. You can get organized by tagging your links and documents so nothing will get lost.

3. Cyfe

Cyfe lets you organize what would otherwise be unintelligible data. The program acts as your business’s data dashboard, where site visitors, adwords metrics, keyword rankings, and social media success can be accessed together. Pre-built widgets from MailChimp, Shopify, and many more let you customize your dashboard to view the information you want to see. With all your data in one place, it’s easy for the whole team to keep track of the big picture.

4. Trello

What’s great about Trello is that it’s intuitive enough to be used for grocery lists or high-growth businesses. You set up boards, which can be assigned different tasks. Those tasks are easily moved around, tagged with other users’ names for delegation purposes, and checked off once completed. It’s an ultra-fluid to-do list, and it’s perfect for those who prefer to keep track of tasks the easy way.

5. 1Password

Stop using your mother’s maiden name or your childhood nickname as your password. It’s understandable—you’re worried you’ll forget it, so you make it super simple—but you’re practically inviting scammers and hackers to your doorstep. Instead, go ahead and generate a super complex password and save it with 1Password. This little tool lends you peace of mind and extra time at once by storing your passwords securely and auto-entering them for you on selected sites and programs.

6. Office 365

Office 365 is the product of Microsoft, one of the biggest companies on the planet. This means it has an incredible range of powerful features surrounding email management, file sharing, and online meetings. OneDrive provides an excellent cloud storage solution for businesses, while Skype for Business makes web communication a breeze. Start small with Office 365’s Business Essentials package, or shoot straight to Premium for added amenities.

7. Unroll.me

Junk email is infuriating and clutters up your inbox, distracting you from vital work emails and documents. How often have you clicked on your email while expecting an important email, and only found junk mail? Check out Unroll.me, which allows you to bulk unsubscribe from every unwanted email that hits your inbox in one place. There’s no need to scroll to the bottom of every email to unsubscribe, clean up your inbox quickly and easily to relieve the frustrations of incessant spam emails.

All businesses can benefit from a bit of added productivity and efficiency. These tools will help you get your team on the same page, prioritize major projects, and streamline your office with ease.
