Speed and efficiency are everything in business. With today’s mobile devices, there are more opportunities to improve your processes than ever before. Below are just a few of the tools that are available to help you become more productive while on the go!
While we all mourn the imminent death of Google Reader, it’s time to find another option to keep all of your favourite blogs and news sites neatly organized. Feedly offers the ability to import your information from Google Reader, which you should consider doing before Reader’s planned demise on July 1. Feedly features a beautiful interface—whether you’re viewing it on your computer, iPad, or your phone—and keeps all of your information in sync.
Evernote is a sterling example of a synchronization and note-taking app that will enhance your ability to organize your tasks, to-do lists and notes with one easily accessible platform. Evernote promises with its slogan that you’ll be able to “Remember everything.” Enjoyed by over 34 million users (that’s right, millions!), and offering both free and premium accounts, Evernote can also be synced to industry-standard desktop note-taking programs such as Outlook or gives you the option of simply logging in through a web browser. With apps like Evernote, however, it’s no longer necessary to wait until you get back to the office to organize your notes for the day: the process is totally automated!
The ability of the cloud to enhance the productivity of a business is unmatched. Google Drive is one of the most accessible cloud navigation tools on the market, allowing users to create and modify documents from anywhere, anytime and using any device. Imagine being able to make a last-minute fix on a report on a plane right before your meeting: this is the functionality that cloud-based document-administration programs offer their users.
When you’re in need of a synchronization tool that will allow you to share files between your desktop computer and your mobile devices, Dropbox is the best.
Touchdown is unique in the world of mobile applications. There is really no competition for it in the current market. Rivalling the performance of Outlook, Touchdown allows a user to aggregate calendars, address books, appointments and contacts from multiple platforms through a single interface. It has never been easier to consolidate your resources.
