New products pop up in the market almost every day. It’s so easy to get sucked in and rack up tons of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications for every function you need for your business.
There is a need for a system or a way to manage your team’s ever-growing tech stack. While a one-size-fits-all fix might not be that easy to chance upon, here are three tips on how to manage your SaaS tools.
Look at Data
Whenever a team or a worker feels overwhelmed, it’s usually a situation where they need to stop, take a deep breath, and look at the data. For tools, the best way to decide which ones to keep and which ones to toss is to look at the data. Some questions to ask yourself when evaluating:
- What’s the ROI of this SaaS tool?
- Do I use this regularly?
- Is there a problem this tool is solving or am I creating problems for it to solve?
To answer these questions truthfully, just look at the data over the past month or quarter. You’ll find out.
If you’re the only one using a certain product on your team, chances are there needs to be a quick talk about your apps. A quick meeting that lists the tools everyone is using and how they use it will help shed light on what tools everyone agrees on. It’s always a good idea to get on the same page with your team when it comes to apps used. This allows you to communicate better and see problems as they arise without the veil of a different interface.
These are just some tips that should help you manage your team’s SaaS applications. With the right guidance and tools, you’ll sure to find the best SaaS to help your business become a success.
