One of the ways in which you can organise and administrate your business more successfully is through the use of free online tools. Whilst integrating a new piece of software or application can sometimes feel like more trouble than it’s worth, making the move now can help to make a positive and varied impact upon your organisation.
There are several reasons to consider using online tools to help you organise your business. Each of the 4 following tools has been developed to help solve a simple problem that we face on a daily business. In other words, they’re built for efficiency. These tools are designed to be very flexible, whether you’re a collaborative team looking to share information or a private individual concerned about security. Each is accessible on the go, whether you’re traveling, out of the office or simply trying to find information from at home.
Finally, by introducing these tools to your workplace you’ll be communicating to your employees that online performance matters to your organisation. You will increase the tech-literacy of your workforce and inspire them to find creative solutions to everyday workplace issues.

Dropbox allows you to save and sync your files online, meaning that they are externally backed up and available to you on any computer or compatible device. It’s easy to share files with relevant groups and track the progress of your colleagues.
Strictly speaking, this is a suite of free tools provided by Google, all of which are backed up online and available across a wide range of devices. With documents, spreadsheets and a variety of collaborative options it’s a great way to keep your workforce connected.
It might be best known as a social phenomenon – bought by Facebook for $19 billion earlier this year – but the reason for WhatsApp’s success is that it allows you to text and picture message for free. If your business requires constant communication then this simple, fun app will help you to keep in touch with colleagues for free.
