Newest Addition to my Productivity Arsenal

WriteThat.name - save any contacts from the webStop disrupting your workflow to add new contacts to your address book.   You’re too busy for the copy – paste – copy – paste – reformat, followed by 5 minutes trying to figure out what you were doing before you paused to update your contacts.

I utilize an arsenal resources to maximize productivity so when I saw a Lifehacker post titled, “WriteThat.name grabs contact info anywhere on the web,” I was intrigued.

Sign up with your email address and download the extension if you use Chrome.  Copy any contact info you find online and paste it to the app.  WriteThat.name reformats the material, helps you edit details and save the new contact with 1-click.  The app syncs to your address book to permit automatic updates  or you can review/approve changes before they are made.  It’s like auto-pilot for your address book!

WriteThat.name also offers add-ons that synchronize with Salesforce, Outlook, and can even search your old emails for contacts.  Still not convinced?  Add me to your contacts with 1-click using the link below and send me a message.  I’m happy to discuss my experience and answer your questions!

Apps for Business I Could Not Live Without

With thousands of apps at your fingertips it’s easy to become overwhelmed.  Most people quickly realize they have no use for 9 out of 10 apps available in the marketplace.  In this complex world of productivity tools, social media, reminders, and mobile access, each of us discovers a select group of apps that become a key component in our lives and life without them seems unbearable.

 

mobile business appWhen you’re not scrolling through pictures of your ex on Facebook or begging friends to help harvest your farm, there is a wide selection of apps for business, productivity, and organization.  It’s time to get down to business and there are different apps for different chaps, so my favorites won’t suit everyone but I encourage you to test them and share your own favorites below.

 

Organization:

  1. Dropbox – store pictures, phone/security backups, passwords, team files, you name it.  I have to rank Dropbox over Evernote because of all the bonus space I’ve earned. (50 Gigs – boom!)
  2. Evernote – keep notes organized, tag/label items you’ll need in the future, or bookmark articles to read later.  View/Edit/Save material to your Evernote account while logged-in using any browser or access the same material while you’re away from your desk using a phone or tablet. Evernote

Communication: 

  1. Skype - inexpensive international calling from anywhere you have an internet connection.
  2. Google VoiceGoogle Voice – can’t get messages while you’re out of the office?  Use Google Voice to have voicemails transcribed and delivered to your email inbox.  Similar to Skype, Google Voice also offers inexpensive international calls.
  3. Whats App Messenger – send text messages to any phone anywhere across the globe for free!

Travel:

  1. TripIt - email flight, hotel, car rental, or any other confirmation to TripIt and the information will be neatly organized into a trip itinerary.  Stop carrying copies of your confirmations everywhere you go.  Download the TripIt app and have your itinerary at your fingertips.
  2. Kayak - my favorite app and website for searching flights.  Easily select your criteria and within seconds you have a list of all flights from most major airlines.
  3. Uber – refuse to fight for a cab?  Limited budget but want to show up for your meeting in style?  Go Uber!  Uber will signal a cab, towncar, or van (set your own preferences) and using the magic of GPS your ride will pick you up at your current location for a small surcharge.  You’ll never hail a taxi again! Uber

 

There are several other apps that help me get through the work day, but the aforementioned list should be part of everyone’s bag of tricks.  Commit to using a couple of the apps on my list for the next week and let me know how it goes.  Is there an app I need in my life?  Let me know in the comments section below.
