Entrepreneurs are busy people who consistently look to find ways that can help them make best use of their time. Entrepreneurs favor tech tools which can help them to manage their workload and run tasks more efficiently whether they are looking to make supplier payments, order promotional materials such as pens, t-shirts or printed lanyards online, conduct a video conference or even just access documents remotely. The following are 3 of the most popular business tech tools that are favored by entrepreneurs:
- Cloud Storage Tools
Entrepreneurs are consistently on the go and in demand meaning that they need the flexibility to be able to store and access files wherever, whenever. Cloud storage tools such as DropBox, Google Drive and OneDrive enable entrepreneurs to store and share files securely in the cloud and access customer or employee files too as and when needed, even if they can’t make it to the office. Such tools are particularly useful for sharing large files that cannot be sent via e-mail and are especially great for sending a month’s worth of data to your accountant.
- Organization and Productivity Tools
The demanding schedule of an entrepreneur means that organization needs to be a key priority. Organization and productivity tools such as EverNote, Trello and Expensify ensure that entrepreneurs can easily manage and log impending tasks, track or follow up on scheduled tasks for themselves or employees and quickly log important data such as client meeting dates and times or expense details.
- CRM (Customer Relationship Management) Tools
At any one time, any entrepreneur can log into a CRM tool such as Salesforce, Nimble or SugarCRM and see how sales are doing, where they are coming from, identify any new prospects and monitor employee performance. A CRM tool enables entrepreneurs to organize customer details, increase productivity, and most importantly – drive business results.
