    The e-signature solution for your business

    One of my top email signature solutions is DottedSign - the app comes with quite a few highly useful tools that make signing documents on the go very easy. I have the app on my phone and that's basically all I use for all my signing needs. I specifically like the fact that I'm able to assign signatures and track the progress. Being able to do all this on my phone is pretty great and I'm able to work on the go and this definitely increases my efficiency throughout the day.

    As you grow, organizing tasks and stuff becomes very complicated. Trello Board really helps me focus on things which matter most urgently. There are some board templates which follow agile methodology to have your business tasks done. It helps you focus on things you need to get done in sprints and basically not forget stuff :)

    A powerful, award-winning app for media monitoring 🚀

    Kuba Rogalski39Content Writer at LiveChat · Written
    Speaking of time-saving, I guess a social media monitoring tools could be of help as well. If your business is talked about online, you want to know what do people think about it, whether these are good or bad things. If the volume of conversation is high, it is even better to have such tool as it will save you a lot of time you would otherwise have to spend manually browsing through different social media, news sites, blogs, etc.
