5 Online Tools You Can Use to Manage Your Company More Effectively

Posted Wed, August 21, 2013 by Julie Short

It isn't uncommon, when we meet with new business web design and marketing clients, to find that they have dozens more software tools and applications than they really need… but at the same time are missing out on some of the "essentials." In other words, they have a lot of things that won't really help them run their company, but have missed out on some of the most convenient and powerful tools out there.

To help you get more from your business, and your schedule, here are five that we can recommend you check out and incorporate into your company right away:

1. Trello. This amazingly simple piece of software makes project management a snap. By helping you sort tasks and milestones, complete with icons, next-step reminders, and other simple features, it gives you a straightforward way to move through large, complex projects, even when lots of different people are involved.

2. HootSuite. We mentioned this piece of software in a recent post about social media marketing, because it can be a wonderful timesaver for almost any business. Not only does it bring all of your social profiles together in one place (so that you don't have to log into them individually multiple times a day), but it lets you schedule tweets and other social updates ahead of time. If you feel like you don't have enough time to keep up with your social accounts and connections, HootSuite could be the answer.

3. Dropbox. This application lets users share large files with one another, and then update them on an ongoing basis. That means you can transmit pieces of data that are far too large for email, without uploading them to a public part of your website, and then collaborate with other team members, vendors, or customers at remote locations.

4. Skype and/or GoToMeeting. We've lumped these two together for the simple reason that traveling to face-to-face meetings isn't always a viable option these days, for financial and scheduling reasons. But, by using either piece of software (or both in conjunction), you can communicate with others and show off intricate presentations in real time, and all for a small fraction of what you'd pay for a single airline ticket.

5. Evernote. Although Evernote has a few distinct functions, we love it because it's document management at its best. Save important emails, paperwork, etc., and then tag it by date, folder, and even keywords. The result is that you'll never find yourself looking for an important file or piece of paper again, because they've all been stored and backed up in one convenient place.
