Top 20 Productivity Tech Companies - 2018

Living in a fast-paced world dominated by digital technologies, employees across industries are more connected than ever before. Not only do they have access to a plethora of resources including devices and applications to complete tasks but also have the opportunity to work remotely. While the current working environment is ideal and is supposed to increase productivity within organizations, global statistic suggests otherwise. One of the significant challenges of having a digital infrastructure encompassing many systems and apps is that employees are forced to tie them all together and invest time in juggling between different software rather than focusing on their duties. While the workforce is helpless, digitally-driven enterprises adopt newer technologies without having an idea about the impact it could have on the organization and firms on the verge of moving away from traditional systems struggle to achieve the transformation.

As competition increases by the day, global enterprises need productivity tools to survive, if not excel. As many studies suggest that the future of enhancing productivity will rely on fueling the fire around using work context, companies not only cutting-edge technologies that help them increase workforce productivity understanding individuals’ and teams’ work patterns across all apps and services, but also need solution providers who bring in additional value apart from the software.
