5 Useful Apps For Daily Office Life

It’s the beginning of a new year! To start 2019 on the right track, we wanted to introduce some great apps for the office! We use some of these every day because they truly help make our lives easier!

Evernote

Whether you desperately need or simply just love to keep things organized, you should definitely consider adding this to your daily app routine. Evernote’s website headline says it best, “Feel Organized Without The Effort.” Best of all, the most basic plan is FREE!

Some key features are:

  •  You can create notebooks that are tagged and categorized according to the type of notes you’ve created.
  • Track your time. That’s right track how much time you spend working ..or errr waste when you’re bored on YouTube. This allows you to see your time on emails, projects, spreadsheets, etc. It may be tedious to getting down everything you’ve done a few times a day, but it will allow a big picture of how your time is used.
  •  If you have a branch that’s across the country and need to collaborate, then, have no fear. Evernote is the bridge that connects your teams by sharing your notebooks.
  • Don’t have time to write a note? Record a voice memo!
  • Keep your financials in order by tracking your personal budget and collect images of receipts in your Evernote app!

Grammarly

Have you ever had that feeling of relief when you’ve finally sent that email that you left last on your to-do list? It’s all fine and dandy until you reread it…only to find a typo that you swear wasn’t there before. If only you’d had Grammarly.

  • Grammarly is always a step ahead of you when it comes to grammar and misspellings!
  • The app even senses when you’ve used a word out of context and offers you a better alternative.
  • Download into your phone’s app store (Android or iOS) or into your computer’s keyboard!

Voxer

This app has become a staple for us at Century!

  • We use Voxer to communicate office members and the window cleaning crew with real-time messages and group chats (group chats can fit up to 500 people)!
  • You can even categorize your personal voice memos into different folders.
  • Messages are quick and are easily sent and saved if you need to play it back.
  • Better yet, you can “star” especially important messages that save into a separate folder.
  • iOS and Andrioid Friendly!

 

 

CamScanner Pro

  • Your phone’s camera is turned into a portable document scanner and OCR tool solution by just using your phone’s camera.
  • Get JPG or PDF formats of your documents.
  • Android and iOS Friendly!
