5 Best Apps for Productivity

Our Head of Digital, Neil has compiled a list of his 5 best apps for productivity in the office.

Here at eJIGSAW, we’re all about getting the job done, in the most efficient and streamlined way possible. We also like to keep up-to-date with the latest technology and apps (and it’s sort of our job too). So we thought, why not write an article about a combination of the two, and here it is, eJIGSAW’s 5 best apps for productivity in the office!

1. Slack

As their tagline says: “Where work happens.” And who are we to disagree. If your company isn’t using Slack as your preferred internal communications system I’d have a rethink. Brilliantly designed, and beautifully crafted the app allows you to chat to team members rapidly and easily, whilst utilising a hashtag system to organise all the conversations. Available, both as a web app and on mobile devices it is really is an essential for companies of all sizes!

2. 1Password

Fed up of keeping track of all your passwords, or getting annoyed because you’re always having to reset them? Look no further than 1Password. This app takes all of that pain away, and all you have to do it remember one (secure!) password. 1Password then gives you access to any other accounts you have used it with, with an automatically generated, super-secure password.

3. TweetDeck

Yes, there are other (more expensive) alternatives for checking your Twitter feed (Buffer, HootSuite, Sprout Social etc.), however, none have managed to convince me that they deserve my money when compared with TweetDeck as a social media management tool. On a lot of social networks? Want real-time updates on your accounts? Want to manage multiple accounts? TweetDeck has it all (well mostly all) of it and best of all it’s totally free!

4. Basecamp

As the spiel on their website says: “Basecamp solves the critical problems that every growing business deals with.” We love it and our clients love it. Basecamp is a project management tool that makes it easy for both ourselves and the client what has been done, what needs to be done, the deadlines it needs to be done by, and who is responsible for the task, giving our projects full transparency, just the way we like it.

5. Office Dog

Alright, technically not an app, it sure does help with morale, and therefore productivity. Ours is called Jenson, and we may be biased but he is bloody cute!!!!

 

 

There you have it. Our 5 best apps for productivity (and animals), however, we know there’s more. What would you have included on the list? Let us know on Twitter or Facebook.
