Some of our favourite tools of the Trade

1. TeuxDuex

I love a list and find there is nothing quite like the satisfaction of ticking a task off your to-do list once complete. There are hundreds of ‘to-do’ type apps out there but TuexDuex is the right combination of simplicity, functionality and beautiful design for me. TuexDuex is calendar based and will magically transfer any items that you haven’t crossed off, onto the next day. You can reorder, set tasks to repeat weekly, highlight important task and even create custom lists. I have the responsive web site open in my desktop each day showing just the days tasks and have the app on my phone for adding to my list on the go or in the dead of the night when I tend to remember things.

2. Xero

You would have been living under a rock if you have not heard of Xero yet, but I’d still like to mention it as it plays such an integral role in our business.

Before Xero our monthly figures were like a mythical creature delivered to us at the end of each month by our trusty bookkeeper. Today with Xero we know exactly were we stand every minute, of every day and from any corner of the world.

3.  Shoeboxed

Shoeboxed is another tool that has changed how we do business day to day. Gone are the dusty folders of receipts kept from the stone ages, now we just shoebox it.

Now all of receipts are neatly sent away in a blue envelope to Shoeboxed the receipts then appear ready to be exported and reconciled directly in Xero. Shoeboxed is a definite time saver in the Zoo.


4. Boomerang for Gmail

5. After all the tech tools, I should mention my all time favourite tool that is always by my side. Ready to sketch, doodle and day dream.
