With the incredibly rapid progression of technology within the last few decades, new industry standards are set about as often as new fashion fads and keeping up with all of them in order to stay competitive keeps turning into more and more of an arduous task. No matter how dead-set you may be to keep things the same and stick with the good ol’ tested methods, if you want your business to survive you will have to keep up with the times.

As brutal as this may sound, it is the harsh reality of the business world ever since, but especially during the last few decades. Let’s discuss some types of software which could be very beneficial to your business, be it a startup or a well established one, there is always room for improvement.

Screen capture and file sharing
Programs such as ShareX, puush or gyazo to name a few, allow for quick uploading of files to your storage site of choice. It natively supports sites like OneDrive, GoogleDrive, puush, Mega, s-ul and if your favourite uploading service of choice is not on listed, a “custom file uploader” option is also available. Not only does it allow you to upload files of your choice with 2 clicks, it also allows for easy screenshotting. You are able to set your own keybinds for whatever action you want it to perform, screenshot area, screenshot whole screen, screenshot current window and even record in a similar fashion. This might not sound incredibly amazing, but it is an absolutely excellent tool which will dramatically change your workflow. Allowing quick and easy communication of ideas between members of a team, rather than explaining something or sending over the whole project file, in a matter of seconds you can just screenshot, upload and link whatever you want to anyone. Highly recommended.
