If you want to boost your business, you need to keep up to date with the tools and software out there.
In today’s article, we’ll talk about three types of technology that can really boost your business.
When we start to plan a social media strategy for our clients, we often look at how they communicate internally.
Communication technology such as Slack is a great way to keep everyone updated within your company. You can also use tools like Dropbox and Google Drive to share brand assets like procedure manuals and style guides.
Lesser known tools like Trello are can also be really helpful for project management. The drag-and-drop functionality makes it a perfect alternative to the humble to-do list.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software is an essential way to stay on top of your prospective customers.
There are great options out there, whether you are a huge corporation, a small business or even a freelancer.
The main advantage of using CRM software is that you can access all your customers’ information in one place. On the more advanced platforms, you can call, text and even video call directly from the software itself.
Best of all, you can shift and move leads and their information around fluently if things change with your project.
Project Management Software
Everyone has their own way of managing projects. We’ve already mentioned how Trello can help you stay on top of task lists and task flow.
But there are more sophisticated applications out there for the complex tasks. The best ones are able to integrate different aspects of project management:
- Financial reporting
- Task management
- Workflow logging (inc timesheets)
- Client management (inc onboarding)
- Bulk communication
Our sister company Key Business Consulting recently launched its own project management system called XeFlow. It combines the best of cloud accounting system Xero and invoice management software WorkflowMax.
