It took a bit of time, but I figured Slack out. And I’m no spring chicken. It saves time for our nonprofit board by reducing emails and keeps communication in one spot.
It’s one of the collaboration tools a small business can use to keep a team on top of projects and reduce confusion about who’s doing what. Slack reduces the flood of emails as the message gets uploaded once to the team channel, and everyone can see it no matter their location. And not only the memo but documents and images related to the communication.
Are you looking for project management help for your team? Quire allows your business team to break down the big idea into small and smaller chunks and tasks. These smaller blocks can be shuffled and moved around on a Kanban board that all the team can see and give feedback.
Are the creatives in your office having difficulty showing their ideas to the rest of the team? There’s a collaborative tool to fix that, Creativity365. This software is cross-platform, handling Windows, iOS, Android, and MAC. Teams can share and work on animation, video, audio, presentations, and other documents. Other features include offline editing, presentations, e-signature, and content management.
ProProfs makes SAAS software for training and customer support. Their training modules include a quiz maker, LMS, and a knowledge base. Their software prescription for creating happier customers consists of a help desk, survey maker, and live chat.
Many of the above tools are free or low cost. It’s not expensive to load up your team’s toolbox and advance your business.
