Successful businesses take team management seriously. With the pandemic escalating the need for online work, MS Teams, Zoom, Slack, Google Meet, and many others have evolved from small group-meeting platforms to full-fledged collaborative workspaces, replacing the typical workplace.
With the increase in remote and distributed work came the increased use of digital tools to aid collaboration to boost teamwork and productivity.
Going beyond the basic Microsoft and Google tools available and leveraging AI-driven tools can significantly augment creativity and innovation and boost team productivity. Today, we bring you the top 5 AI tools to leverage to improve your team’s efficiency.
Stay organized using a self-organizing whiteboard from Gemsnotes
Pulling out information from multiple email threads, documents, and note-taking apps is time-consuming and tedious. This often requires re-reading documents, copying and pasting important concepts, or even re-listening to meetings and documenting the important takeaways manually.
Once you’ve pulled all your data and ideas into one spot, you still need to summarize the information by building a spreadsheet or arranging the data into tables or charts to make sense of it.
You can speed up this process significantly with AI-driven, self-organizing whiteboard, Gemsnotes.
By unlocking the insights trapped in your files, Gemsnotes helps you extract information from your files faster, grouping and connecting them for you to gain deeper insights.

Stay up to date on everything going on in your team with skimmable summaries from MaestroAI
Think about how many words you type each day – in Slack, in emails, in Word or google docs, and even in Jira or Confluence. Now, think about your current team – maybe it’s 5, 10, or even more people in different roles, and multiply your word production by that number!
It can feel impossible to keep up with what all your teammates are up to on a daily basis. And more importantly, how their progress impacts your job and tasks.
This is where MaestroAI comes to the rescue.
