Tools to increase your Team’s Productivity.

Small and Medium Enterprise owners and CEO’s are always looking for the best tools available in market, which promote their team’s engagement and help them to run their businesses successfully. Some of my friends ask me about what we use in W2S Solutions. We work with few tools and here is our #Top5 that we love.

tool-for-team-productivity

#Slack – This makes our job easy in terms of Internal communication. It helps to send private messages and also you can create project-based groups. Messages are archived and best part is the Search. You can easily search and find what’s discussed earlier and navigate to the chat history. It’s FREE and no limitation in number of users.

#Asana – An Innovative tool that almost stopped our Internal email threads. Very easy to create tasks, assign to a developer or team and get notified easily when the job is done. Tasks won’t be missed if you use Asana. However, 15 users are only allowed in FREE package, but still it lets you to create new users when you switch the workspace! Cool.

#Moqups – We are a web and mobile apps development company and we create wireframes for our customers. We tried with other tools before, but nothing is user friendly as Moqups. Anyone can create a design in a few seconds. Super easy!

#Beanstalk – Saves time in code versioning, deploying and reviewing. It was a tough life before to setup a local GIT environment, maintain the code version and run deployment script. Beanstalk reduces this process and everything happens in just a single click. Though there is no free version, if you would like to maintain a clean code, Subscription is recommended.

#ZohoCRM – One of the best CRM available in the market. It helps to keep track of your sales leads, convert into accounts, potentials and also contacts. There is a restriction in the number of custom reports you can generate in FREE package, but it’s manageable.

There are other tools we use sometimes, but as I mentioned, these are our #Top 5 that is used extensively.

Ultimate guide for enterprises interested in building apps for their employees

Employees demand to access Enterprise systems on the go increase day by day. Mobile apps adds value proposition to organizations by increasing Employees execution speed thereby increase their productivity. Once the Enterprise makes the decision to build apps to meet their needs,they must analyze these factors to find out what they need :

1.Employee-driven
2.Buy; Customize or Build
3.Approach app as a Product

Employee-driven:

The mobile apps must be tailored to the needs of the Employees.. Before taking a decision on mobile strategy,they must clearly define the various app user personas. In Enterprise system, there are several mobile app user personas that use the same Enterprise software but each requires different mobile apps tailored to their needs. Hence mobile apps are not one-size fits all personas. This is the reason why defining Persona-driven mobile apps is critical.

Buy; Customize or Build:

The Enterprise software vendors are offering packaged mobile apps which have only basic functionality and workflows and these types of apps are acceptable for enterprises which need simple apps for generic business processes. Based on the needs of Enterprise like connecting with back-end systems, app customization approach can be opted where a preintegrated and prebuilt mobile app can be customized using the integrated app editing tool. Enterprises can also opt to build mobile apps from the ground using various mobile app development products.

However, this approach typically requires dedicated Mobile team with specific skills and expertise, such as back-end integration and mobile user experience design. This approach is best reserved for more complex mobile workflows that can transform business processes and this is where Custom Mobile app development companies play a major role.

Enterprises should do research to determine which of the three is best fit for their mobile app needs. Starting with one way doesn’t mean that you have to stick to it, based on the learned experiences the Enterprises tend to move to the next best suited one.

Approach app as a Product:

The app must be iterated periodically to meet the needs and expectations of the Employees which will change over time, and so the Enterprises must always think about app enhancement to meet those needs. Hence the mobile app should not be thought of as one-time project, but as a product which needs to be constantly maintained and enhanced.

These factors guides the business leaders through the decision process and provides best practices for mobilizing enterprise applications.
