Is becoming more productive, more efficient and more inspired on your New Year’s resolution list? We know it’s on ours here at Jiran. With this aspiration in mind, we’ve compiled the most useful online tools to streamline your personal and professional lives.
1. Spendee for financial health
The New Year is the time to track income and expenses, analyse financial habits and stick to budgets. Spendee is the expense-tracker app for everyone, from homemakers responsible for organising household finances to business owners juggling personal and work budgets. It has a simple interface that is easy to navigate and cute animations to cure some of that budgeting headache.
2. Wave for entrepreneurship
If you’re a rising entrepreneur but dealing with math makes you break into a cold sweat, wave hello to Wave Apps. It’s the best free suite of financial software that covers all the basics you need for running a small business — from accounting and invoicing to receipts — through a user-friendly interface. Wave’s award-winning software takes care of the math and paperwork, so you can focus on generating new ideas for your business.
3. Google Analytics for informed decisions
Google Analytics is a popular productivity app that helps monitor data in real time, evaluate key performance metrics, compare data ranges and execute segments, build reports, and much more. How do you measure your business and project success? How do you determine if certain investments have added any value to your business or not? If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, it might be time to turn to Google Analytics for some answers.
4. Trello for productive teamwork
Trello is another great mobile app for business owners looking to manage their team and tasks on a single platform. This app allows you to categorise your task according to priority, activities and deadline. You can assign tasks to your team members individually and set a timeline so you can spend less time managing people and more time creating value.
5. Evernote for effortless learning
Are you a visual or audio learner frustrated with living in a text-centric world? Evernote allows users to make notes that are audio recordings, handwritten, photos, drawings, or internet content. Notes can be organised into searchable notebooks which can be tagged and annotated. It can be synced between two devices for free or more for users willing to pay. No more frantically searching devices for old notes.
6. Pocket for catching up
We’ve all been there. With so much content flooding the internet on a daily basis, there aren’t enough hours in the day to get through them all. But don’t fret, there’s a better way to organise all your ‘save-for-laters’. Pocket is exactly what it sounds like, a place for you to keep all your useful articles, images, videos, and other content for future reference. You can even save content from web browsers if you have a plug-in. The best part? You can access the content from any device and even without internet connection.
7. Canva for creativity
Let your imagination and creative powers run wild on Canva, an app that shines among a sea of graphic design tools. Its simple drag-and-drop format and gorgeous selection of photographs, vector images, graphics, and fonts make it the easy first choice of non-designers as well as professionals for building their social media and digital platforms.
8. Sanvello for wellness
Stress affects everybody, regardless of whether you’re the owner of an established business empire or just embarking on your entrepreneurship journey. Take control of your health, and build productive habits and mindsets to fulfil your potential and reach your goals with Sanvello.
