In honor of Small Business Week where a popular topic is productivity, we did a quick survey around the LogMeIn office of sites and apps we use every day that keep us productive. The results were pretty widespread, but a few names came up over and over, so we’re giving our favorites a shout out. Here are the top 5 productivity tools we love here at LogMeIn and we think you should too:
Evernote – I’m hard pressed to go into a meeting where a colleague doesn’t open up Evernote to take notes and keep track of to do’s. Whether you use it in its most simplest form to take notes, or you take a more complex route and integrate with Google, Salesforce, Sunrise, or one of their other partners, Evernote helps us remembers things when our brains don’t. Who doesn’t love that?
Nexonia – If you travel a lot for work, you know how painful it is to do expense reports after the fact. Painful. With Nexonia’s mobile app, you can fill out your expense report on the go. Picture this – order dinner at the bar, sign the check, take a photo, upload it to Nexonia. Boom, no receipt needed. The trick? Your company has to be a paid user of Nexonia in order for you to take full advantage of the app and its amazing time-saving features
LogMeIn Pro – We know we’re tooting our own horn here, but Pro recently amped up its productivity game. Not only can you quickly remote into your computer from your phone or tablet (or web browser), but now you can store all of your files – photos, presentations, finances, whatever – for anytime, anywhere access. Not just a few files, but 1TB worth of files. Plus, you can share your files in Pro with anyone – a summary report with your client, a presentation with a vendor, even school photos of your kids with Great Aunt Mary.
Trello – We all know and love Trello but a recent story from a co-worker took that love to a new level. He loved this project management tool so much that he now uses it for his personal life. We’re talking, it’s Saturday morning, time to check the Trello board, check that box productivity. Enough said.
Rising Star: LastPass – Again with the horn, we get it. But really, have you tried LastPass? Here’s the gist: create your account and a Master Password (make it tricky, but something you can remember), and then add a few logins to your LastPass account. From there, you just need to know your Master Password to access those logins – and it works with a browser extension or mobile app so you’re not tied to a specific device. In a nutshell, it means you’ll never have to reset a password again. Talk about productive!
That’s the scoop on what we’re using here at LogMeIn. Give these productivity tools a try at your office and see how much time you can save in a day!
