5 Software Tools That Will Help You Manage Your Workload

It doesn’t matter what kind of work you do; there are online software tools available today that will make your life easier. This will be a relief to anybody bogged down with tasks they find too complicated, or who are struggling with productivity by the sheer amount of work they need to do each day. In this article, we will look at some of the software tools available that will alleviate some of the pressures you may have been facing.

  1. FreshBooks

Unless you have an accountant, you will no doubt be faced with any number of financial tasks, some of which can be overwhelming if you don’t have a head for numbers. FreshBooks is an easy to use accountancy tool, giving you the ability to manage everything from dealing with online payments to tracking your expenses. You can even choose a template for your invoices, giving your business that professional touch, no matter how small your company.

  1. TeamViewer

With TeamViewer, you can easily collaborate with up to 300 other people by allowing access to each other’s computers through screen sharing. This is especially useful when you want to share a presentation for a business meeting, or take part in training remotely. Of course, if you are having difficulty with a particular project or task, you can let somebody else remotely take over your computer to help you with the problem.

  1. Wunderlist

Wunderlist is a great organizational tool, letting you prioritize tasks, whether it’s for you, or anybody else on your staff team. Through the power of the cloud, everybody can keep in sync with each other on whatever device they are using, and you can delegate tasks accordingly. You can also set up alerts and reminders, ensuring you don’t miss an important meeting or project deadline again.

  1. RescueTime

This is a time-management tool that tells you just how long you are spending on a particular task each day. Running in the background, it will give you a detailed look at how you have spent your time, whether that’s emailing, having meetings, or any other activity that may take up your valuable time. Furthermore, it will block certain websites from use, particularly those that take up too much of your time as a worthless distraction, such as your favourite social media channels. With a visual display of your activities,  you will know where your time could be better used in the future.

  1. Trello

Think of Trello as a virtual whiteboard. Not only does it help you keep track of your workload, but it also lets everybody else within your team know who is doing what. With a range of Power-Up Boards, you can also collaborate with others, delegate tasks, have video support, and organise your files in one easy to use system. Trello also connects you to other useful software tools, such as Dropbox, Evernote, and Google Hangouts. It’s your one stop place for all your productivity needs.
