4 communication tools you should take advantage of

Back in the spring I told you about 4 marketing tools you should take advantage of. Hopefully, you had a chance to check them out. Keeping with the theme of “tools you should be using at work”, here are 4 communication tools that you should DEFINITELY use in your office.

Slack: If you haven’t heard of Slack, you should check it out. Slack is a fantastic tool for communicating with your team, no matter if they are in the office next door or on the other side of the country. It has tons of features and integration possibilities and offers you the ability to chat one-on-one, group-chat, and share files between computers. It really is the best in the biz when it comes to communication and collaboration.

GoToMeeting: If you have a need for top-notch video conferencing software, GoToMeeting is for you. Its simple interface paired with clear communication is the combination your office needs to make video conferencing easy and productive. You can also share your screen, which is always a nice feature for meetings.

Asana: If you need to keep an eye on current projects, look no further than Asana. It’s as easy as sending an email, and will help you track projects from start to finish. Asana makes it simple for teams to track their work and see results. If you want projects to be super-organized, this is the tool for you.

Google Docs: I think you may have heard of Google. You know, that company from that movie. Google Docs will allow your team to access, create, and edit documents wherever they are, on any device. You can even collaborate on the same document at the same time without ever having to hit “save”. Google Docs saves changes as you type. Now if that’s not ideal, I don’t know what is.
