Today, so much of business is happening on computers and on the Internet. Software for the workplace is, in and of itself, a huge industry and finding the right products to keep your business moving in the right directions can sometimes be overwhelming. Depending on what it is your company is doing, what types of data you are dealing with and how much of your business is happening with computers, the types of software you choose to use in your workplace will differ from what another company head may choose.
Finding what products are most effective for you and your team is a great way to spend some time as it will ultimately immensely increase efficiency. Below are short descriptions of three products that Farotech uses on a daily basis. This is just a quick highlight of the kinds of software for the workplace that are available.
Basecamp is an extremely useful tool that gives users access to a wide range of features and helps them better manage their work. This efficient software for the workplace is designed to make keeping track of all things having to do with your business easier. From calendars to file storage, unique project folders, client conversations, email and text documents, Basecamp is really a one stop shop for seamlessly managing, storing, tracking and sharing. Different packages at various price points offer users the ability to choose what they need.
Recently, Basecamp incorporated easy use of Google Docs. This is good news for many people.
Google Docs are easy to use and free! For any Google users a google drive is easily attainable and can be organized in such a way that will greatly benefit both work and personal life. Creating, storing and sharing files with Google Docs is simple. Set up in a similar fashion as Microsoft Office products, Google offers the ability to create documents, spreadsheets, presentations, forms and drawings. While the ability to manipulate text and images is less comprehensive than with Office products, Google Docs provide a simplified platform that offers what many business men and women need.
Join Me is a software for the workplace that is specifically designed for holding online meetings. This product allows users to speak with one another via the Internet, similar to Skype, but makes sharing screens amongst multiple participants more seamless and provides a host of other features. Some of these features include:
- Meeting schedulers
- Meeting recording options
- Multiple users
In the same way that Basecamp offers a variety of packages, Join Me allows users to choose between free, trial versions and more complete priced options.
