Below is a list of a few innovative technology tools, some specifically built for the industry and others that aren’t, but will make your life so much easier.

Non WedTech, but definitely life-changing:

  • Grammarly: an advanced writing assistant tool that reviews the quality of your written communication by providing real-time grammar and spelling checks, as well as style and tone suggestions. The monthly metric emails about your writing are always interesting!
  • Calendly: an efficient scheduling tool that simplifies the process of arranging meetings and appointments by allowing you to share your availability and allowing clients, vendors, or potential clients book time slots that fit their schedules (and yours!). Say goodbye to the annoying process of emailing back and forth to find a time that works. 

The key to success lies in embracing technology and leveraging it to enhance your services and exceed your clients’ expectations. By integrating innovative platforms into your workflow, you can streamline your processes, better serve your clients, and stay ahead of the curve in an ever-evolving industry.
