If you ever find yourself searching through your inbox to find old email conversations, the team communication platform Slack may be of use to you. Through Slack, you can talk to your teammates online and store the conversations into separate channels. You can communicate via email, text, or even a tweet, and it is all compiled into the one place, so you never lose a conversation again.
For businesses that share documents amongst their team, Dropbox might be a digital tool worth using. This service allows you to store your files online, which can be accessed by employees from any device or location once you have given them permission to do so. Dropbox is especially useful to teams who work remotely or need to access documents on the go.
For many small businesses, having a lawyer look over all your contracts and documents is likely to be out of your budget. However, Docracy is a tool that hosts a variety of legal documents that you can use to gain inspiration for your business, such as employee contracts and service agreements. In addition, it offers a free service that allows for both parties to sign the document online. Whilst this could never replace having personalised legal advice, sourcing your documents from this platform is better than having no documents at all.
