Team work isn't always easy. Yet businesses nowadays rely on the ability of their employees to collaborate well on projects, regardless of each person’s specific role in the company. When there’s a lot on the go, sometimes tasks get forgotten; and it’s not always easy to track who was responsible for them in the first place. In other cases, co-workers are based in different locations, so communication (and the right tools) is everything. Luckily, there’s a whole heap of great software and Android apps to take the stress out of coordinating everyone.
Some focus on time efficiency, while others propose organization systems to help you assign tasks, and stay updated on the progress of each project. They also allow us to stay connected with every member of the team, wherever they are. So if you’re already a team player looking for ways to make yours and your workmate’s lives even easier, then we've got just the ticket!
Check out our selection of the best team management apps for Android. Getting the job done will never be easier.
If you work in a team and are looking for a mobile way of coordinating your team, then here’s an app that’s well worth a look. Podio (as used by the Appszoom team!)is a multi-platform app which is not only easy to use, but is also a functional and customizable tool for organizing your team, communicating with co-workers, and tracking tasks and project.
Here’s another interesting (and free!) tool for managing your team. activeCollab for Android is designed to make organizing your team tasks a breeze, by allowing you to follow tasks and whoever’s responsible for them. We particularly like it because it also includes client incorporation, and communication tools to keep your whole team in the loop.
Taking control of your projects is a breeze with Basecamp, which functions not only as a tool with a multitude of options for managing your team, but as a means of inviting all of your team members, and your client, to get involved. This way, everyone knows what’s happening with the project, can share files easily, and can access all information related to a job with total ease, without fear of misplacing files on the way.
If time’s your biggest enemy, then Time Doctor will keep you calm and on track. As the name suggest, this app helps you get the most out of your precious working minutes. You can use it to track how long each team member takes (and should take) to carry out a particular task, so you can work out your team’s capacity and needs. It’s a great way of carrying out an accurate team time audit.
If as well as dealing with working in a team, you also have to cope with doing so at a distance, ooVoo out to be the next app you download. It’s one of the most popular video calling apps around, both for Android and iOS. It’s simple and easy to use, and with just one tap, you can connect with your contacts wherever they are. It’s particularly great if you work from home, or from any corner of the globe, when you’re physically separated from your team.
