Top 5 Must Have Productivity Tools

  1. INVESTINTECH’s PDF to Word Converter is not your average document converter tool. What sets it apart from other like-tools is its ability to convert both scanned and native PDFs to Word, it requires no software installation on your computer, supports all files sizes, and is completely free to use.
  2. Do.com ($10/user/month) is designed to help managers  who hold a lot of meetings make meeting management more productive. It guides you toward better meeting practices and provides a central place for meeting archives, follow-ups and outcome tracking, and more.
  3. Doodle.com (free) has been around for quite some time now and is an excellent way to effortlessly set up polls for scheduling meetings. It is free to use, and respondents need not join to answer a poll. It delivers on its promise in cutting down on needless emails to determine the best time for a group of individuals to meet by streamlining the process of scheduling.
  4. FreshBooks (starting at $9.95/mo) is a cloud accounting tool for managing and tracking invoices, time, and expenses for very small businesses. A risk-free 30 day trial lets you try it out and determine if it works for you.
  5. Pocket (free) formerly Read It Later, lets users save Web pages, video clips, and images to their accounts and access them at a later time. The next time a blog post, tweet or link to an interesting article threatens to distract you, tap the Pocket icon and rest assured that the item will be waiting for you to peruse later.
