Is your technology working for you?
It may seem like a simple question, but for time-strapped workers and business owners, the answer can make a big difference not only in their productivity, but also in the success of their business. With that in mind, here are five technologies and tools that can be a big help to workers and business owners alike.
Dropbox for Business makes it easy and convenient to sync important work documents across all devices and seamlessly access these files from anywhere.
When collaborating with colleagues, workers can create shared folders and give different group members access to specific folders or links.
CloudOn lets you create and edit PowerPoint, Word and Excel files straight from your iPad, with just a few taps. Workers can edit and review Microsoft Office documents from their phone or tablet. The service also provides an intuitive, touch-based interface that makes it easy to create and edit important documents on the go.
Asana is a shared task list that keeps all of your team's projects and tasks in one place so that everyone stays in sync. Emails can often get lost, and one-on-one conversations leave team members out of the loop, so using Asana adds transparency, accountability and structure to projects. With Asana, you can assign owners to different tasks, such as reviewing and approving a contract, as well as set priorities and due dates on items.
DocuSign makes it easy to take care of signatures on the go. Signing a document can be done in three easy steps. First, click the link in your notification email to open the document. Then, follow the instructions that guide you through the signing process. Finally, click "Confirm Signature." Once you confirm it, an alert will be sent to everyone verifying that the document has been signed. Users can sign important documents from their iPad or iPhone.
Mailbox makes it easy to manage inboxes on the go by providing colorful swipe-based features that make performing email triage a snap. The app helps to conquer email overload, and with Mailbox's new integration with Dropbox, you can easily attach files from Dropbox right as you're composing an email.
