how to eliminate emails

Most people in the business world use emails, making them one of the most popular ways of communicating with clients, teams and colleagues. Yet emails do have their downsides, with comments such as “I didn’t get that email” or “I haven’t checked my emails” being all too common.

Relying only on email can slow down productivity and stop you from getting an edge over the competition. A lot of innovation has occurred and you’ll be surprised at the power of the communication apps now available.

Harnessing this technology could be the change you are looking for…

Benefits of Using Communication Apps

With plenty of excellent clouds apps available to help boost communications and productivity, it has never been easier to move away from emailing.

Taking team discussions away from emails provides the opportunity to have all communications occur within the same context, rather than having to leave the context to get in touch through an email. It keeps things simple and easy to follow.

They provide an interface to see what needs doing and a chat/message function for quick communication.

Email does still have its place though, with notifications from all the apps you are using being sent to your email. That allows your email to become more of a storage point than a working unit.
