What is Productivity? Productivity is about producing as much of something as possible while creating something of value and quality.

Time management is something that we have been taught from a very young age. As the famous politician Benjamin Franklin, once said, “Time is money.” Every second spent has its cost which leads to decreased output.

As our world is changing, we are entangled in a web of technological findings that most times, we get overwhelmed. To keep up with today’s business climate, we have to adapt to the changing need to ensure our company’s operations run smoothly. Relying on several productivity tools for your business is one such issue. Instead of a successful output, it is just a waste of time.

Here is a list of tools most of the businesses use these days and the issues that come with it.


Literally, everyone is on WhatsApp. We get it. But how can a business benefit by relying on a chat tool like WhatsApp?

  • No privacy for user information.
  • Too much clutter and noise.
  • No additional feature other than chat.
  • Informal chat takes time in scrolling and wasted productivity.
  • Limitation in group size.


This is a better alternative to WhatsApp when it comes to managing your business. But Slack also has a set of issues that don’t help businesses to stay productive.

  • Offers a platform for communication purposes alone.
  • Conversations are deleted in the free version after some days.
  • No conversation backup unless you pay.
  • Hard to keep track of multiple conversations happening within the company.
  • It is clumsy for large projects.
  • The video collaboration tools aren't very intuitive.
