In the fast-paced work environment of a nonprofit employee, productivity is key to success. With advancements in technology, we now have access to an array of tools that can help us stay organized and be more productive, whether in the office or on the go. One of the most useful of these tools is the cell phone.

A cell phone can help you stay connected to your work even when you are on the go. Obviously, you know that you can text and email, but you can also stay connected with your colleagues while you are away from the office. Download Teams / Slack / WhatsApp or whatever method of communication your organization uses, to stay in touch and keep up with messages and ensure that you are always up to date on important projects, without waiting until you are back at your desk.

Cell phones also allow you to stay organized by giving you access to your calendar and to-do lists. You can quickly add or view appointments, deadlines, and tasks, so you never forget about important dates or obligations. You can set reminders to keep yourself on track throughout the day (including reminders to take a well-deserved brain break from time to time).

In addition to these basic productivity tools, there are many apps available that can help you be more productive at work. For example, you can use a note-taking app to jot down ideas, thoughts, and reminders, so you don’t forget important information.

Here are some other cell phone apps that our experts think will help your productivity.

Adobe Scan (Available on Google Play / App Store): Quickly scan, edit and send a document straight from your cell phone using the Adobe Scan app. It is easy, recognizes the text automatically and allows you to save your document in multiple formats. Learn more with our Tech Tip.

Sangoma Talk (Available on Google Play / App Store): The Sangoma Talk app works seamlessly with our Voice Over IP (VoIP) phone system. With this app installed, you can make and receive calls using your office number right on your cell phone … and all without anyone having to know. That means you don’t have to give out your cell phone number to someone if you don’t want to. You also have all the features of your office phone, including park, transfer, caller ID, three-way calling and conference bridging. You can also set it so that it only rings on your cell phone during work hours, or during certain parts of the day, so those after-hour calls still only ring at your desk and protect that work-life balance.

Storage Apps: Whether you use OneDrive, Dropbox, or another storage app, you can easily upload files and documents from your cell phone and make them available on your computer. These apps are also great for safely sharing files between people whether or not they are part of your organization.

When you can work so easily from a cell phone, it is easy to lose your work-life balance, but when used properly, they can actually help you manage that balance. With the ability to respond to messages and work from anywhere, you can work from home or on the go, giving you the flexibility to manage both work and personal responsibilities. As was mentioned with the Sangoma Talk app, take advantage of the after-hours settings and mute alerts, turn on do not disturb, or take other steps to protect yourself from unnecessarily being on the clock 24-7.

As you can see, cell phones can be a valuable tool for increasing your work productivity. With instant access to information, communication, and organizational tools, you can stay on top of your tasks, meet deadlines, and be more efficient and effective in your work. By incorporating cell phones into your work routine, you can take control of your productivity and succeed in your professional life.
