We’re back today with even more tools from our team here at Owler. This week we’re featuring sites and programs to help with your day-to-day business. This expands on last week’s post on Chrome extensions.
Here at Owler, we have four core company values that help us focus on what’s important. They are Quality, Personality, Simplicity, and Speed. These next 5 productivity tools take those values into account.
- Uber Conference (Quality)
Brought to you by the team behind Google voice, Uber Conference is the answer to all your conference call frustrations. It has a user-friendly web interface, used to schedule and track calls. During the call, you can access information such as social profile (via Linkedin) as well as see who’s talking. It includes plenty of features such as document and screen share. The best part is there are no lengthy pins to connect calls- and it’s free!
2. Pocket (Simplicity)
There is a wealth of information out there. How often do you come across an article that sparks your interest in the midst of researching something else? Put in your pocket. This extension stores and categorizes websites and articles to look at later.
3. Genius Scan (Simplicity, Speed)
Stuck without a scanner? These bulky machines are unreliable and hard to come by these days. If you aren’t in a big office, you likely don’t own one, nor do you want to. But once in awhile, you need to scan a document. With Genius Scan simply take a picture of your document with your phone and the app will convert the image into a legible scanned file.
4. Great Suspender (Speed)
Does your web browser look like this?
Having multiple web page open eats up valuable ram which in turn slows down your computer. With the Great Suspender, you will save both energy and speed- and can still hold your place by keeping your tabs open. Whitelist your most used sites so they don’t fall asleep.
5. Crystal (Personality)
Want to know more about a potential client/employer/first date/acquaintance before you meet them? Meet Crystal. Crystal analyzes public data to detect the personality of anyone with an online presence. It uses DISC personality and profiling (Dominant, Influential, Steady, Calculating) based on published work, social media posts, twitter interactions and additional Linkedin information. It then loads a personality profile and tells you the best ways to interact, what to write in an email, topics of interest, and even what type of venue you should meet in. Kind of creepy? Yes. But, I’m sure you’re intrigued.
