What are some tools you use to communicate with other team members about projects and other aspects of work. Besides the regular social media communication and texting/calling.
I am working at a type store right now as one of three "Digital Marketing Specialist". I have been there for about 3 months now and the communication and processes they have are very dated and things seem to get lost. We use Outlook for emails and basically everything is routed to emails. From there we communicate through outlook, verbally/texting and phone calling. Information on to do lists are put on which is alright but I want to possibly pitch the boss on allowing us to use a messaging application or some other form of communication that ties everything into one.
Ie. which is basically which is what a lot of gamers use to communicate on.
I think having something like slack would be beneficial to use due to having so many things on the go. We are one of the biggest Ecommerce websites in Niagara Region. Our website is on Wordpress and we have about 4000 products online. We upload products and bundles daily also making them ourselves. All while adjusting pricing and abiding by Price lists from which are listed on our website. We are looking into a program called ChannelAdvisor and I'm pretty sure we are going with them but it is VERY costly for the boss. This will help us have one dashboard as we don't only upload products to our site but we also manage 3 thirdparty websites with pricing and uploading individually. Amazon Newegg and Shop.ca.
Any tips and tools that you guys would advise on checking out would be of great help as right now our processes are lagging I feel.
Anyways looking forward to hearing some answers.
