Time is money, right? With this in mind, it’s important to do whatever it takes to make the most of every minute of your day.
Business owners often struggle with the idea of finding enough time for all the tasks that are on their plate. As a result, they don’t get everything done, and their business suffers as a result.
Fortunately, there are a variety of time-saving tools you can use in 2019 to take back control. Here are a handful of tools to experiment with (but there are hundreds of others to consider):
1. G Suite
There’s a good chance you’re already using some of the G Suite tools, but in case you’re not, now’s the time to get started.
For example, Google Docs and Sheets allow you to easily create and share documents and spreadsheets with your team.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a one-man show or part of a Fortune 500, there’s a good chance you can use G Suite as a way to save time.
Do you constantly find yourself wasting time as you sift through mounds of business data? Has it gotten so bad that you’re ignoring data that could take your business to the next level?
“Connect any spreadsheet to any data source and let your business employees do all of their work where they are most effective.”
So, if you’re the type of person who does their best work in a spreadsheet setting, you’ll want to give Kloudio a try.
Its features are powerful, it’s simple to set up, and it’s user-friendly.
There’s nothing more frustrating than jumping from one application to the next to collect data.
Cyfe is an all-in-one business dashboard that brings an end to this problem, thanks to integrations with a variety of social media, analytics, sales, and support applications.
For example, if you spend a lot of resources on social media, it’s critical to track, share, and examine every last piece of data.
From Twitter to Facebook to LinkedIn, no piece of data will slip through the cracks. Instead, you can pull everything together into a simplified dashboard, providing access to an overview that’ll save you time (and hopefully make you money).
Get Your Team On Board
It’s one thing to understand that you’re not using your time in the most effective manner possible. But it’s another thing entirely to come to grips with the fact that your team may be struggling with this as well.
The three tools above aren’t something you should keep to yourself. Instead, you’ll want to share them with your team so everyone can take advantage. Also, ask your employees the following questions:
- Are you struggling to manage your time throughout the day?
- Do you feel that you have too many tasks and not enough time to complete them?
- Is there anything the company can do to ease your pain?
- Are you familiar with any time-saving tools that we can implement as a team?
By asking these types of questions, you show your team that you understand their pain and what they’re going through. You also give yourself the opportunity to make changes that will benefit the company as a whole.
When you combine this with other tasks that require your attention, it’s easy to see that you may not be working at peak efficiency.
With these types of tools, among others, you’ll find it easier than ever to save time. And that’ll go a long way in making 2019 your best year ever!
What are your thoughts on using technology to help with time management? Is this something you’ve experimented with in the past? Do you have plans on using additional tools in 2019 and beyond?
