We often use apps to seamlessly integrate our home life, so why are we not using them to their full potential in the workplace? As a business that delivers world-class managed service connectivity, workplace & cloud technology; we are passionate about all thing’s digital, and apps are a great way to digitally transform life at work by streamlining long and arduous tasks into quick, easy and interactive ways of working.

Revamp how you Project Manage with Trello

Gone are the days of sticky notes on whiteboards to divvy up projects as Trello is here. Using cloud-based technology, the highly visual tool enables you to operate your boards, lists and tasks from either your phone or desktop. All the while keeping your projects organised, the team informed and everyone working collaboratively.

 

 

If you need a system that enables you to allocate tasks quickly, then Trello is the tool to help; the ‘labelling’ feature allows you to colour code tasks on the board – giving your team the ability to immediately recognise whose task is who from a mere glance as well as filtering by person, giving you a quick view of which tasks are assigned to you personally.

Trello has transformed the way in which a project is delivered, it aids transparency, clear communication and collaboration.

Are you tired of the long walks to the office printer to scan in this week’s signed invoice? The app Scanner allows you take a picture of any document, save it as a PDF and send it to anyone in your email list at the touch of a button, while on the move – completely transforming the way in which documents are shared from a finance department.
