Having said this, we know that business owners and entrepreneurs don’t always have time to do the research involved in finding and setting up the best tech/software solutions…which is why we do it for you!
There are some great cloud software solutions out there – all designed to enhance your business processes.
Here we recommend the bare necessities required for streamlined back-office systems…
1. Stay on schedule with Google Calendar
Knowing where you’re meant to be is pretty fundamental when it comes to running a business! Google Calendar is easy to use, integrates seamlessly with lots of other software and updates effortlessly across different devices.
2. Get organised with Dropbox
A good filing system is vital. Dropbox offers a fantastic, very affordable solution to keep your files organised and accessible (documents are available on your computer or online).
3. Communicate with Zoom and Slack
Zoom lets you have face-to-face meetings…remotely. One-to-one or group meetings are made easy with this great video communication platform.
Slack is a great team communication tool. Fewer meetings, less internal emails and a place to keep track of ideas are just a few of the benefits.
4. Manage your finances and cashflow with Xero and FUTRLI
