Disentangling the collaboration tool jumble
You are the founder of a company and like to use free collaboration tools such as Gmail, Google docs, Slack, Trello to work with your small team. At some point, however, you realize that you are overwhelmed because the exchange of information is confusing and simply takes up working time.
This may be because the internal information is exchanged through too many different channels.
Have more fun at doing your work
Your workday would be so much more relaxed and enjoyable if you used your brain for actual work rather than for searching information. And having to keep up with the frustration when not finding what you are looking for. Your ultimate goal is to work with your team to get the company on track, right?
I'll show you how you can better structure your teamwork. Your digital workday should be at least as professional as your service or product for your customers.
Find it quickly, don’t loose time
There is a large number of software available, that bundles the various, free of charge collaboration tools.
The advantage of this type of software is: switching back and forth between the tools, opening and closing different windows on the desktop, has an end.
The various collaboration tools are integrated in one platform. Easy and straightforward access to the information is saving time for sure.
Your first step ...
Some preparatory work is needed when you plan to structure the current collaboration tool jumble. You will have to decide upfront, which features are indispensable for you and your team, and how much money you are willing to invest each month.
Going through the prep work is not easy and implies efforts that can be time consuming for you. I am happy to accompany you through this decision-making process. Feel free to make an appointment for a video chat.
I recommend that you decide carefully your choice, because any change is connected to costs and additional resources.
I looked at a variety of collaboration tool bundle software providers and evaluated them according to the following criteria:
- Is the software sustainable? Does it offer features that can be added when needed?
- Is it compliant with EU’s General Data Protection Regulation?
- Is the design appealing?
- Where does the electricity for the servers come from, is it coming from eco power plants?
