Are you aware as to how important is note taking in a business? It’s important to capture every single idea as they evolve. Also, one may need to have others to collaborate on one’s ideas. Evernote offers a brilliant space for note taking and planning.

Also, it offers options for nested folders and web clipping. In fact, it can be used in many possible ways from to-do checklist to capturing ideas or note taking.


Every business needs to promote itself in a visually appealing way to attract more traffic in the quickest possible time.

Project Management is certainly one of the most commonly used words in the business arena nowadays. If you want to improve the productivity of your business and ensure that every task is accomplished at the best, project management is the next best thing to do.

Each task can be assigned to a single staff or even multiple staffs. Every card has various options such as attachment, commenting system, Labeling and more.


Communication plays a very important role in every business and even though, there’s no denying the fact that there are a whole lot of messaging apps available in the market, Skype is still seen as one of the best messaging apps. One of the best advantages of using Skype is the fact that besides the fact that it can be used on an android phone just like any other app.  

It can be also used as a web app or a browser-based app independent of the phone which is not really possible with apps like Whatsapp. There's absolutely no need to scan a QR code unlike in Whatsapp.

Apart from that, you can share docs, images and other files on Skype. Most importantly, it allows you to make video calls as well as share your screens. Now, communication can’t get any better than this, right?

Google Calendar is certainly one of the most powerful Calendars as it has the right mix of various important features.

Google calendars can be shared using email ids. Also, a user can create multiple calendars in the same account. This helps you keep the picture of your upcoming events really clear for yourself and helps you in never missing out on any important events.
