Best Productive Tools For The Office

If you're like me, then you're always trying to find ways to increase productivity in the office. Productivity can make or break your company. Productivity is a measure of the efficiency of production. High productivity can lead to greater profits for businesses and greater income for individuals. The control managers in a given organization are tasked with maximizing productivity through process-oriented observations and improvements. I have put together a list of the top tools we use to create a more productive work environment in my company.

Posted on

1. Trello

Trello / Via trello.com

"Infinitely flexible. Incredibly easy to use. Great mobile apps. It's free. Trello keeps track of everything, from the big picture to the minute details."

Trello is a great project management tool to use within teams. I use this system to track a project timeline for events we host.

2. Slack

Slack / Via slack.com

"All Your Team's Communication in One Place. Sign Up for Free!

Integrated Team Workflows · 900+ App Integrations · Secure Communication"

Email is sooooo last century. Chatting is the number 1 way to communicate within a workplace now. I love Slack because of the app integrations. Google Hangouts/Chat is so in the past. Slack -- it's where communication is at.

3. Wunderlist

Wunderlist Logo / Via wunderlist.com

"Wunderlist is the easiest way to get stuff done. Whether you’re planning a holiday, sharing a shopping list with a partner or managing multiple work projects, Wunderlist is here to help you tick off all your personal and professional to-dos."

I use Wunderlist for all of my weekly to-dos. It's really great because you can set due dates & reminders. You can also categorize everything. I highly recommend this web-based app (for iPhone, MacBook & online!)

4. FileMaker Pro

FileMaker / Via filemaker.com

"Transform your business with the FileMaker Platform. Create custom apps to meet your unique business needs."

I use FileMaker Pro to maintain a CRM within my business. This powerful tool can be customized (with the help of a programmer) and you can create a powerful database / invoice system / CRM / etc. I have one of my FileMaker databases connected to MailChimp to send out travel itineraries for my event VIPs.

You will need to purchase a license to use this program. Click here for more information.

5. Evernote

Wunderlist / Via wunderlist.com

"Collect, nurture, and share ideas across desktop and mobile platforms with Evernote. Your thoughts are always with you, always accessible, always in sync."

I use Evernote to share ideas, meeting notes, event details (contacts, contracts, budgets, etc.) and more. This is a great tool for group collaboration.
