Productivity is essential to the success of any entrepreneur. Attaining results in every activity you undertake is pivotal in reaching your goals. Yes, there are a lot of distractions and clutter that can affect how much we can get done at once, but today there are so many tools out there that can save you time and effort while you focus on what’s important — attaining results. Of course you will need the best email marketing software as you apply these six productivity tools for entrepreneurial success.

SaneBox

SaneBox helps you better manage your email inbox. There are newsletters and social media notifications that simply eat away at your time while sorting through emails. Deleting social media notifications and newsletters is not the best way to make the most of your time.

This is what SaneBox does for you. It helps clean your inbox by creating a filter to move out non-essential emails to a separate folder. If you think getting started with this tool may take a lot of effort, note that SaneBox learns your preferences over time and works within your existing email.

Google Docs

As entrepreneurs, we all have a Gmail address. However this tool is not utilized fully or the power of Google Docs has not been fully understood or tapped into by the modern-day entrepreneur.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
