Technology in the workplace can do a lot to save you time, effort and mental bandwidth, and these five services are no exception…
No matter which type of work environment you find yourself in, technology can bring a ton of value to your work day.
It could be for time management, personal finances, workforce management, or maybe just something to help your personal workflow, technology can help make many aspects of work easier.
These five technologies are no exception, and are worth looking into.
1. The Mayo App
Mayo is a mobile application that allows users to ‘ask for help’ from the people in their immediate area- be it a coffee shop, store, library, etc.
Using a no-sign-in-required model, Mayo discourages the social ‘connectivity’ aspect that is traditional in most social platforms and instead focuses on connecting people in the real world for the purpose of solving tasks at hand.
Mayo’s founder Allen Chan is integrating this application into the professional co-working and university environments for helping people solve business problems and school related tasks, respectively.
If you work remotely or find yourself in a population-dense area, Mayo can help you with everything from brainstorming business solutions to borrowing a MacBook charger.
Because the Mayo app is relatively new, there is a lot of opportunity to get early-adopter value from the application.
2. All About PDF
PDFs are the cornerstone of digital documentation in the workplace.
It’s a format that is widely accepted and maintained for professionalism purposes, but for the most part, PDFs are stagnant and can pose a lot of hassle when in a time crunch.
Have you ever received a PDF and realized you have to make changes to it? Not an easy task to accomplish.
All About PDF is a PDF management software that allows you to modify PDFs in ways previously not thought possible, all on a dime’s notice.
See the screenshot below for just some of what All About PDF can do for you in the workplace.
3. Keeper Tax
Finance management is a headache for a lot of professionals, especially those in the freelance or contract working space.
Tracking receipts, invoices, costs, expenses, from every micro transaction that occurs on a daily basis is a time management nightmare that nobody has time for.
Keeper Tax is a tool for automated expense tracking with one specific purpose- to help you to get the most accurate tax report filed with the IRS.
Keeper Tax steps in as the middle man for finance management and texts you (yes, you read that right) whenever an expense is incurred on your credit/debit card.
From there, you can tell Keeper Tax if that expense should be filed as business, personal, or other.
