Technology That Will Keep Your Business Organized
By Leslie Radford
You got your physical space organized in January, here’s how to use technology to help keep your business organized further:
Get the Right Note-Taking Tool
Get rid of paper clutter by taking digital notes. Download a note-taking tool like Evernote or Google Keep. You can organize notes and ideas to access for reference with ease. Make sure it’s something you will use consistently and can possibly be used across several devices so you don’t go back to paper clutter.
There are also programs like Google Tasks and Todoist that will help you keep your to-do list handy. To-do lists will keep you undoubtedly organized.
Get a Digital Calendar
Digital calendars are great because many can be used across devices, like Google Calendar. They can be color-coded so you can find particular activities quickly and many easily integrate with other software to make scheduling a breeze. This will help keep you organized by knowing exactly what you are doing when so you don’t miss important dates revolving around your business.
Programs that Keep You in Touch with Clients
Staying in touch with clients and customers can be overwhelming and can get disorganized fast. However, keeping in touch with your customers indicates that you care about them and value their business. A CRM (customer relations management) program, like Hubspot, will keep all their contact information in one spot. You can find their information quickly to send regular notes or emails about new products and services that you offer or just to check in with them.
Several email marketing tools like MailChimp allow you to store a customer’s birthday and send an e-card or other email campaigns automatically.
These days, with newer and faster applications, it’s now possible to have a paperless, uncluttered office. Having access to data at your fingertips indicates a good business organization.
