5 Software Solutions for Managing Your Team in the Digital Era

Technology can be your best ally or it can be your worst nightmare. It starts from the moment you wake up in the morning and you start checking your emails. This can be overwhelming especially if you need to reply to an email with information from another email, which you probably don’t have at that precise moment. Keeping track of visuals, emails, prices, slides from a PowerPoint, etc for specific project can be time consuming.

Technology is fantastic, but it also can turn out to be time consuming. Fortunately, someone is always thinking about how to make our work productivity more efficient. There are now easier ways to keep everything together and keep your sanity intact. Here are few software solutions to help you manage your project as well as your team:

1. Producteev

Files can be added to tasks from where ever you are working from and they can be reviewed from your Producteev inbox. This software also has a native iphone app available free of charge for managing tasks while on the go.

2. Flow

Flow has a very cool design and if you are a Mac lover, Flow’s homepage will make you say… “Sweet! Nice!” Flow’s interface functions extremely well. Flow basically is a desktop app built in the cloud. The Projects, Tags, and Contacts are pretty straight forward and easy to use.

3. Remember the Milk

Yes, the name of this software is catchy. Remember the Milk has been around for awhile, and most people like this task management software. One of the main benefits of using RTM is that it’s available on a wide selection of platforms including Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile. It also is very well integrated with google map, google calendar, and iCalendar. And here is the best part all these features on RTM are free!

4. Samepage

5. DROPBOX
