That’s hello in Ghanaian Twi. I hope these last two weeks have gone well for you.
We know how hard it has been to adapt to the new directive to avoid public gatherings and work remotely. Some of you may be new to working online while others could be looking for new ideas to add to the mix.
Nendo is part of the UN Global Compact, an initiative committed to implementing universal sustainability principles. As part of our response to COVID-19, we would like to share the tools and resources that we use at Nendo in hopes that it will make your journey a little easier. Happy reading!
1. Basecamp ($)
Basecamp is a project management tool that incorporates tasks and work chat. It also has a “client-side” where clients can engage in the same environment and minimise emails. Why we like it:
It helps keep everything in one place i.e. teams, documents and to-do lists.
It is equally effective on mobile as it is on desktop.
Avoid sending alerts to your email inbox. You can also turn them off on specific days or use ‘Focus’ mode.
Get the mobile version to stay connected while away from your computer.
When assigning a task, tag the relevant person so that they are notified.
Upload documents and meeting agendas to respective projects for easy tracking.
Skitch is an app that easily allows you to communicate your notes visually with annotations, shapes and sketches. Why we like it:
It supports PNG, JPEG, TIFF, GIF, BMP and PDF formats.
Integrate the app with Evernote to easily save your screenshots and annotations.
10. Creative and Note-taking Tools
We use several other tools that you can check out including Workflowy, Adobe XD, Brandwatch, iA Writer, Canva, Refind and Venngage. Feel free to check them out.

Until next time,
Mark and Team Nendo
