This is a guest post by Robin Singh, educational researcher at ProProfs.com.

All new entrepreneurs with a small number of people working for them need to come up with good methods to help them and their employees work efficiently and boost productivity.

Many people think that their company’s productivity troubles can be quickly and easily fixed just because their startup businesses have smalls team.

Things aren’t always that simple, however.

It’s true that startup’s projects are probably quite smaller than a big company’s but it’s also safe to say that there are a lot less available resources than on a larger business.

Having a small team means that each of the team members need to do their part so that the company works like a well-oiled machine and achieves good results.

There are various tools that can increase your team’s performance and boost productivity. Here is a list of some excellent tools you can use.
