[fusion_dropcap color=”” boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”50%” class=”” id=””]T[/fusion_dropcap]oday there a numerous applications you can use to improve your business communication, but are they all there to make your life easier?

No! You wouldn’t expect that answer, right? When I started working at Headalight I was given the task of improving our internal communication. My research was overwhelming because there are just so many apps from developers promising mountains of gold that you don’t know what to choose. Some apps go so far as suggesting they’ll do your work for you, and one made me wonder: “can you do my laundry while you’re at it?”

Application number 1: Slack

Slack is a messaging app that keeps all your team’s communication and files in one place, and can be accessed remotely from the cloud. 

I find this tool easy to use for these reasons:

 Score: ***** Easy to communicate with colleagues.

Application number 2: Trello

Trello organises a team’s assignments into clear, easily accessible columns on a board that stretches across your screen. Tasks, called cards, can be added to the board like sticky notes, and by clicking on a card you can then view or upload attachments and message team members about them.

You can create several columns to show the stages of a task, for example: In progress, Waiting for approval or Complete. A cool feature of Trello is its communication tool, which enables you to tag and update workmates on particular jobs. The communication tool works with an @ username, just like Slack does, and Slack itself can even be integrated into Trello so that all communication follows a single channel.

Here’s how to use Trello’s card system:

Score: ***** Easy to see the status of your assignments all at once and where the hold-up is.

Application number 3: Dropbox

Last but not least is Dropbox, an excellent file-hosting platform that keeps your files safe because they’re hosted off-site, in the cloud. It synchronises across your devices and works well with Slack and Trello.

Score: ***** Easy to share important large documents with your workmates and store them safely; works well with other apps.

There you have it, three tried and tested apps that have existed for some time now and work well together. They’re all available on the freemium business model, meaning they’re free, but for added functionality you can opt to subscribe. Please share your thoughts if you’re trying them out or already using them – just drop me an email on julio@headalight.com or leave a comment or two.
