There are a lot of tools now that help maximize office efficiency and workflow. Life is just easier with the cloud! And with new startups and new technologies being developed every day, there are plenty of new services to implement in your workplace that will help you get the job done. Here are a couple of the superstar tools from this year. If you haven’t signed up for them yet, now is the time!


Dropbox is a file-sharing system that makes saving items—and finding them again—very easy. The program is easy and intuitive to use, so employees can access the files they need when they need them, even when they’re working from home. If you sign up soon, an individual user can get a new subscription for $79.99 instead of $99.99.


This file-exchange and chit-chat service for offices is one of the youngest startup companies to have reached the elusive “unicorn” status. Slack features an easily-accessible messaging platform to allow coworkers to talk to one another when they’re in different rooms (or when they just have headphones in).


Evernote really has its little note-taking hands in everything. This organizational program allows users to store notes, ideas, and contacts all in one place, and a dedicated Evernote email address lets users forward email, tweets, or whatever other kind of content is needed. All information is stored in one easy-to-use program—and it works cohesively across computers and mobile apps so it can really be taken anywhere.


This clever tool allows users to write, link, and schedule out posts for social media all at one time, in one place. Got something you want to share on Twitter, Google Plus, and Facebook? Just enter the information into Hootsuite, doctor it up how you like, and schedule those bad boys out! Hootsuite makes everything in social media just a little bit easier.

There are plenty of options now for in-office efficiency tools. Which ones are your favorite?
