Staying on top of a project with several moving parts is never easy. But office admins do it every day – and when the moving parts are employees, things can get even tougher.
Good software helps, but with so many options available, how do you begin to choose?
Fortunately, there are helpful and easy-to-use technology solutions that can help you stay organized and increase productivity.
Below is a list of 5 tried-and-true tools you can access straight from your browser for a trouble-free 2017.
1. Say goodbye to paper invoices with Due
Tired of dealing with paper invoices? Leave them behind for good by switching to Due, which makes collecting and making payments from any device painless.
Smart features help you stay on top of invoice statuses, automate recurring invoices, and process funds from payments faster.
Beyond efficiency, Due keeps things flexible and safe – so whether you and your clients are using debit, credit, or account funds, financial data is encrypted and secure.
2. Never forget a password again with LastPass
LastPass is a Google Chrome extension that packs a big punch for the office admin who has enough to remember as it is.
Use it as a vault to securely store passwords and share them among office employees.
Save even more time by storing payment information or addresses to populate forms in a single click.
3. Manage Projects in Taskworld
Taskworld lets you organize office projects, break them into delegated tasks, chat with team members, and track progress in one seamless interface.
