Now that you know using your mobile device can save you time, thus saving you money, you need to know the mobile tools necessary to make this happen. There are many apps available that can make the life work balance more “balanced.” These three are a great start.
You used to have to walk files across the hall to the recipient’s office. Maybe you remember the necessary business of packing up the files in a box and shipping them across the country to those who needed them. Maybe you would be at lunch and get a phone call on your cell (remember before smart phones) from someone asking for a file, and you had to ask them wait until you returned to your office from lunch so you could get it to them. No more! When files are stored on DropBox you can share them quickly and easily with anyone you choose. It only takes a few seconds and the deed is done freeing you up to do be more productive in other areas, or even take a breather.
This one goes hand in hand with DropBox. What if that file contains a document that needs to be signed? There was a time when you had to mail that signed document, but then these nifty little machines, known as fax machines, made that unnecessary. The problem was, fax machines were still bulky enough be restricted to office use, and you still had to have an ink pen to sign. DocuSign allows you to sign documents electronically so that it can then be sent electronically to the necessary party, immediately. The process is streamlined, time is saved, and you are freed up to do anything else that needs to be done.
Chat/ Video Chat
It’s like e-mail, only faster, and you can see the other person if you choose to do so. Have a meeting on anything literally anywhere as long as you have internet access of some sort. The faster the speed the better of course, but you can do it. No matter where they are, no matter where you are, you do not have to wait to send or receive a message. If you need to have a face to face simply dial up a video chat, and if it is too noisy to hear you can just do a text chat. It is really quite easy and very efficient.
