Reminder tool for home or work

Let's not fool ourselves here - we all forget things from time to time. Dont worry, it's not necessarily the onset of Alzheimer's. The fact is, we fill up our lives with so much information that it would be virtually impossible to remember everything. If you watch sporting coaches you will notice that they always have a notepad or a clipboard in their hand because even the smallest piece of information could be vital. Well, I'm not suggesting you rush out and buy a clipboard but there is a more modern way to keep up with the multitude of information coming your way. Remindeo is a free ...  More

Schedule a shift for your staff – and then make sure they do it!

Poor employees, gone are the days when you could finish a shift and forget about the boss until the next one. Once upon a time you could even ignore the ringing of the telephone just in case it was him with a desperate invitation to do some more hours. I’m being a little unfair perhaps. Although Enigmai does give business owners a greater chance of success at contacting employees out of hours that’s not all it can do. As a scheduler it not only manages shifts but can monitor attendance as well as acting as a useful employee management system.  More

Time tracking and productivity

DeskTime is a free real-time time tracking and productivity app that will give precise and automated times on when and when not your staff worked.  More
