Now more than ever, teams need access to apps that will help project and task management effectiveness. The internet is full of platforms and apps that all promise extreme productivity and increased results, but they’re usually hard to quantify in terms of success and rarely get the job done efficiently. To help you choose the best software for your team, here is a list of 5 platforms for team productivity.

Slack

If you manage a remote team and haven’t heard of the powers of Slack, this post is for you. According to their website, Slack has the power to revolutionize the way teams communicate, and they’re not wrong. Businesses of all sizes use the platform for its ability to cut out needless emails and receive instant feedback.

Notion

Notion, often branded as the ‘all in one workspace’ is a project management and productivity- based platform. While it offers a range of templates for ease of use, it is known for its highly customizable interface. Notion makes note-taking, project and data management organized, structured and highly collaborative.

For startups and businesses, Notion takes on the role of an end-to-end provider, with features for Product, Design, Engineering, Sales and HR functions. Its customizable nature ensures that it works with teams of various sizes, and accommodates different views for databases.

Asana

Asana is a web and mobile application designed to help teams organize, track, and manage their work. The platform acts as a foundation for task and project management and enables teams to collaborate effectively in real-time. Teams can create projects, assign work to teammates, specify deadlines, and communicate about tasks directly in Asana. It also includes reporting tools, file attachments, calendars, and more. It also offers multiple integrations with popular tools, making it easy to migrate information from one platform to the other.

Miro

Miro is a digital “whiteboard” platform that can make it easy to brainstorm and collaborate with members of your team or innovation program.

SharePoint

SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office. Launched in 2001, SharePoint is primarily sold as a document management and storage system, but the product is highly configurable and usage varies substantially among organizations. It is also very beneficial in terms of utility as an employee intranet platform, where organization-wide announcements and information can be shared.
