Want to increase yours and your team’s productivity? Need the right productivity tools to help you?

In this post, we will show you the tools to help you become more productive at work. Whether you want to communicate with your team more efficiently, organise your time better or automate those tedious tasks –  here are 4 of our favourite tools and apps that we rely on to work faster and more efficiently as a team.

 

Trello

When it comes to project management, Trello’s appeal is in its simplicity. Each board represents a project where teams can come together to collaborate, assign, and prioritise responsibilities, set deadlines, and determine deliverables. And what is even better, the satisfaction of dragging a task into the “Done” column is extremely motivating for anyone that uses Trello.

 

Loom

Loom is one of the best tools for asynchronous communication and feedback. This video making platform allows you to record and share video messages of your screen, cam, or both. It’s way faster than typing an email or meeting live.

 

Slack 

This is SmartWage’s main communication tool and the backbone of how we talk to each other on a day-to-day basis. Slack allows you to create conversion channels, set reminders, and organise your team’s communication in a faster, better organised, and more secure way. Let that old fashioned email system go!

 

Miro

Ever wished you could have an efficient workshop with your team but online work makes this close to impossible to do? Miro helps you unleash your team’s creativity, plan projects from all angles, and create a working whiteboard for your team to collaborate together, anytime, anywhere.

 

The right tools are the ones that solve key problems and that your team will actually use.  The above tools have definitely helped us solve some problems along the way, and we hope that they will help you and your team do the same!
