6 Apps Every Workplace Should Use

Are you looking for ways to take your company to the next level? Or strategies for improving your team's project management performance? If so, you've come to the right place. The answer is simpler than you think: apps. 

Any company interested in staying current and increasing productivity should be using workplace computers and mobile applications. But with thousands of workflow and team communication apps out there, how do you know which ones to choose?

We've narrowed it down to six apps that every workplace needs for better organization, communication, and productivity. 

#1: NCheck Bio Attendance

You can leave timesheets and clocking in and out in the past with this sophisticated biometric time attendance software. Remote employees can check in and out of work using their smartphone or tablet, as well as their PC. NCheck uses facial recognition to log employee attendance accurately and efficiently. The comprehensive reporting feature also includes a summary of employees' time off, which you can export to payroll.

How It Helps Your Workplace:

  1. No ID badges or key fobs needed (saves money for you and hassle for employees)
  2. Employees cannot sign other employees in or out, ensuring accurate attendance
  3. Keeps workplace secure

If you're not already using Zoom, it's high time to start. The cloud-based platform for video and audio conference calls is accessible to anyone with a smartphone or computer access.

How It Helps Your Workplace:

  2. Breakout rooms allow for smaller group exercises within company-wide training sessions
  3. Great for onboarding and training new employees as well as for interviews

#3: Slack

Slack is the ideal messaging platform for efficient workplace communication. It's quicker than email but more organized than Microsoft Teams or texting. Slack allows you to create different messaging threads for different topics. You can tag specific team members, create checklists, and share files.

How It Helps Your Workplace:

  1. Streamlines team communication
  2. Shared files all in one place
  3. Accessible anywhere, including on mobile devices

#4: Envoy

Envoy is an office manager's dream. It has conference room booking solutions and helps with visitor and delivery management.

#5: Trello

Trello helps you visualize your outstanding tasks. It's a sophisticated to-do-list and project status tracking tool. It also allows you to share your to-do list with collaborators and upload relevant documents directly to each task. Its interface is intuitive and easy to use.

How It Helps Your Workplace:

  1. Keeps employees accountable for all tasks assigned to them
  2. Provides a consistently updated status report on all ongoing projects
  3. Encourages good communication habits within teams

#6: Grammarly

Grammarly is a web-based application that encourages clear, effective writing. The app goes beyond spelling and grammar checking; it highlights wording that is unclear or otherwise ineffective for getting your point across. It ensures that all emails and other written content are professional and clear.

How It Helps Your Workplace:

  1. Clear, error-free writing improves company appearance
  2. Avoid silly mistakes on company-wide email updates
