Let’s go over some of the common types of productivity software you might find in a business environment and why you should consider implementing them for your own company. Productivity software is really smarter than ever.
Productivity Software Suites
The most basic of all productivity software is the productivity suite. Examples include Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, both of which offer word processors, spreadsheet software, presentation apps, and more. There are also other more specialized productivity suites for photo and video editing, as well.

Today’s collaboration software allows people to not only communicate in real time but also provides integrations that build efficiency and team productivity. Using options like Slack or Microsoft Teams can really help connect your workforce.
More important than ever before are communication solutions like instant messaging, voice chat, and video calling.
