This simple productivity app is a real-deal time saver for busy professionals.
We are all searching for the Holy Grail of apps! You know, the one little square on your smartphone that will open up a world of productivity and efficiency, and will order you a pepperoni pizza while it’s at it.
There are a zillion apps out there that promise they will save you a load of time and make your life easier. Some are great, some are just a waste of money and megabytes. I recently discovered a standout which is actually having a real impact on the time I spend communicating with my team.
Note: this is not a sponsored post! I just like sharing awesome stuff with my fellow small business owners. You can thank me later 🙂
I’m on the go all the time, racing to the airport, getting on planes and setting myself up in hotel rooms in all corners of the globe. While I’m doing this, my staff are back in the office steering the ship and making sure we don’t crash into an iceberg while I’m away.
If you travel a lot and you’re anything like me, you’ll constantly be receiving questions from staff and you’ll also be having realisations of all the things you forgot to mention before you left.
This is where Voxer comes in.
This handy app turns your phone into a walkie-talkie. Download it, get your team to do the same and you’ll be amazed at how quick and easy it is to connect with them.
When using Voxer, as long as you have an internet connection, you can talk to your staff at the press of a button. No more dialing numbers and waiting to be put through to message bank. No more expensive international call fees.
Open the app, press the button and start talking. Your colleague will get a notification that you’re on the line and they can listen in real time or catch what you’ve said when they’re ready. You can also send in-app texts and attachments.
Voxer is just so handy. Ok, so it doesn’t shave hours off my working day. But it does shave off minutes, and that adds up over the course of a busy week. It’s quick, it’s simple and it lets you get your thoughts across the moment they come into your head, no matter where you are in the world.
Give it a try, and let me know what apps you can’t live without!
